More expensive tuner worth the money?

Hi, just need members experiences if you have actually used the
extra options on tuners such as Diablo Trinity 1000 or Sct livewire ts.
Are they worth the extra cost?

I've got the SF3/X3 Power Flash Tuner and have been really happy with it. I purchased it from Steeda as a package deal with the Steeda Cool-air intake. The nice thing is that I can get tunes from more than one source, and i'm not stuck with one supplier if I decide I wanted a Bama tune, I can go get one, or one from Steeda, etc... Lots of options and it's really easy to flash the computer with a new tune.

In my opinion, this is not something you want to every go cheap on, because if it's not right, the fallout could potentially be very expensive. Just my 2 cents.

Go with Sct bama performance tuner from American Muscle. Awesome! Free tunes for life. Great customer service and crazy fast for getting you your tuner and upgraded tunes. I wish my stang was as fast as there turn around time. (Lol)

I'm sure there are other good sources out there but American Muscle has been proven, they know what there doing and results for bigger performance. No issues ever with my tunes. Plus, A.M. backs there tunes as being safe to use.

What ever you do, go with someone reputable. Not a fly by night shop. Pay the $379.00 and get quality and free tunes for life. A.M. bro.

the tune is a tune, its not really going to be better or worse based on the tuner used to upload it (but some brands can do different things)

If you want a more fancy one and plan to modify stuff yourself you should know what you are doing before hand else you really should leave it to a pro. Whats the point of having all this information about the car and its current tune setup if you dont know hot to use it to maximize the performance or what ever you are going for
