Im not too good with this sorta stuff but it sounds like you need that tuner that is married to your car. If not, I haven't the slightest clue except to send it off or replace it. Once again im no good with this stuff lol

OP: if the handheld you found is an Sct tuner you can pay $150 I believe to get it reprogrammed and free tunes for life.

I dont have personal experience with it, but I was also lookin at getting a used one a while back. Now I'm just going to wait to get it with some 4.10's. To answer your question though, SCT tuners have excellent reviews on AM and other forums as well so I would say it is a good tuner.

Op. As long as the tuner was returned to factory it will work. You will still need a tune for your car though.

To the diablosport question unless you can get your hands on the tuner used on your car you are stuck. Might be able to find an aftermarket tune that will mimick the factory tune though
