SCT Tuner

I'm on the edge of getting a handheld tuner ,

I'm really going to need it when I get my gets installed Friday,
What are some benefits ?
All I can think of is the correct my speedo lol

I wonder if they would advance my timing , and give my car actually better air / fuel flow ..

Anyone have any experience ??

I believe you can mess with fuel to air ratio not sure. Im process of getting one myself but from references and research...damn the tuner makes a difference. You can have the car tuned to preference whether good mileage, street performance or all out race tune (monster). It's really your choice what you want the tuner to do in the performance category. I also heard the handheld tuner also works as a code reader if your car ever happens to throw a check engine light or anything.

Yes. You can change A/F ratio if the provided tunes aren't to your liking.

Code reader, diagnostics (view live data), remove/set speed limiter, adjust rev limiter, if you have an automatic u can adjust many aspects of the tranni, install custom tunes as you upgrade performance parts, install a tune for 93 octane fuel, adjust revs per mile if u change tire size, adjust gear ratios.
Get one.

When I get the tuner which is soon I'll be tuning it with a CAI and true dual Flowmasters with X pipe with street tune and from some research i'll be packing a sick v6 punch....hopefully. Lol with gears I heard you really feel like a totally different car

Honestly the difference in power wasn't very noticeable, but I don't have a lot of bolt ons.
