Try craigslist. Sct or predator are good for v6's.

I'm not so sure if you'd find a tuner on CL that's unused.... As far as I know tuners "marrys" your car and is "VIN Locked" so you could only use it for that one car... You could contact the manufacturer and pay them to reset it... Not sure how much it's going to cost.

not worth it imo to buy a used one. u'll end up wasting money on having the company unlock it anyway.

I heard they usually charge from $100-150 to unlock it... I'd just buy a new one...

I got lucky when I got mine... Bought it for $100 from a friend. We both have an 04 but his is a 3.8... Tuner he got is only compatible with a 3.9...

Sct allows a tuner to be married to five cars. One at a time. Before switching cars you have to return to stock the previous car.then you can sell it. I got mine off eBay, used.

Yes you are correct. I bought mine used at CL for 70usd and called diablosport and payed 99usd to have it unlocked. Still i save my self 50% of the oroginal price and still it works the same way as brandnew.
