    A quote from GDE:

    The flash tool leaves a footprint via flash counter, this could be an issue with warranty if dealer checks it. That is a benefit for bench flashing ecms, not change in flash counter.

    Agree.100% and as a combat Vet I will say advertising as 'Veteran Owned' is more than sufficient. Most of us NEVER talk about it...some things a man must take to his grave. If however, he is an authentic CV...seems odd to market oneself using an experience of such tragedy to so many civilians.

    It is the guys running around telling war stories or claiming combat service that typically are in the 'Stolen Valor' crowd.....IDK...just MO...

    OP...GDE w/o question...and for transparency it is my understanding they are a sponsor of this site.

    Same. Know your audience, and there's a place and time for everything.

    As an Infantry vet I take his claims very seriously. Someone else posted his service history and claimed stolen valor. Not cool.

    Yeah, everyone knows from my tag what my status is. But it's there because its what the kids call me. The stolen valor thing bugs me, but what bugs me more is the whole attempt at what may be affinity fraud. "Hey, you can trust me because I'm a vet just like you." Riiiiiight. We see this junk a lot in Utah, but mostly through church.

    I'll go with GDE after the AEM dust has settled and their engineers have figured out what the new tune needs.

    I don't mean to imply that this fella isn't honest, I just happen to live in a place where because of the nearly weekly burns we hear about when someone says, "I'm like you, trust me," everyone tends to run away first and ask questions later.

    I've always thought this as well. Be humble, no need to advertise. It's the quiet ones you should watch lol.

    I know of one company whose tune was being sold by another company and I kinda get the feeling I know who the company is now.

    Reads like "Sofa King Tune" ( you can play the name game but this it all the website says that I could find) started up late last year. So, with maybe a 1/2 year experience, they market the tune. Noticed only one evaluation that was brief and related to power. One comment was he drag-raced a Duramax and won.

    If pushing the limits of your engine is your thing then SFT or PPEI tuning might be an option. If you want to run and run and run cleanly with few issues - GDE. The decision and possible risk is yours.

    I'm not sure SFT is even worthy of a comparison with PPEI as far as making decent power numbers.

    The owner of SFT spammed this forum early on and was offered vendor status to continue. Seems he chose otherwise. Hmmmm....
