    I wouldn't trust my $50,000 truck with a tune named after a dumb joke.

    Gde or T&S speedshop shop are the two best tunes on the market personally I wouldn’t spend a dime on sft.

    I'd avoid the Jimmy Tune (SKT) if I were you. It hasn't been out long, nobody knows Jimmy's qualifications with tune programming, and the marketing is reproachable He's had a few customers come on here and FB making outlandish claims so it hasn't been very well received.

    Take a look at the websites of the Jimmy tune, GDE, PPEI, etc. You'll see who puts more time into the quality and functionality of their tune. It was a no-brainer for me to choose GDE. I've been with them for 4 years now, tuned since 457mi, and zero regrets. I've had the tune updated many times and their customer service is top notch.

    I did the core exchange and didn't keep the stock ECM.

    Have you ever had truck into the dealer service department, if so was he able to tell if your truck had been tuned with GDE.

    Many times, and no, they can't tell. I've had to be stern with them that they don't update the ECM and overwrite the tune. Should that happen, it's only $50 to get the tune back from GDE.

    A downside of the Jimmy Tune and the OBD2 programming is it increases the flash counter on the ECM. This doesn't happen with GDE's bench flash.
