    Most tuners use HPtuners, LS1edit, EFIlive etc. which is software that is capable of changing almost every thing in your PCM so yes they can do more than a handheld.

    yes. problem is, if you ever mod the car some more, you have to go back and have them re-tune it and get charged for it. there are only two handhelds that are capaple of handling cams and heads on a car, predator and the vinci tuners. with the predator, you can have a tuner use it to upload his changes. the predaotr is limited to only one 'canned' tune with the ability to modify it.

    the vinci tuner has multiple 'canned' tunes, based on cam profiles and if you have a super charger. i've use the vinci tuner to work the wife's car back when i put heads on it, then later when i put a cam in. here's a webpage i made about the tuner.
