    Checkout the moates roadrunner pcm it allows real time tuning perfect for a serious build or a light power adder. the flash programs are like shooting in the dark. there is a article in gmhightech

    if your going to look at the $1100 roadrunner program you might want to seriously consider the $499 hptuners with real time tuning as well

    HP Tuners requires a laptop, but is well worth it.

    It was a little intimidating to me at first, but I caught on pretty quick. Forum support at HP is pretty good. Just start with the stuff you know and go from there.

    yep, after further research I may get one, BUT if i get one soon, and then get upgrades later will i have to send it back to get it retuned?
