moving this to the tuning section.
My 2 cents is that there are much better options out there for you.

complete junk dont buy a tuner... I have a Diablosport Predator that would probably be of some help if I knew what the hell I was doing. I would recommend getting it dynoed, about the same price and is more effective... Plus, THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING!!! (most of the time)

I made the mistake of buying 1, years ago. Save yourself a headache and listen to us, spend your money on anything else.

i bought a used diablo sport predator a year ago and im happy with it.
but then again i only paid 125 for it! and i have never used the hypertech but recommend the diablo sport, supposed to be one of the best if the "the best" programmer for our cars.
So look around online for a used one, maybe even craigslist.com

hp tuner is the only way to go man if you are gonna be doing anything to your car. if not a stock tune is gonna be your best bet. any tune that you put on your car if you dont have any mods they are just gonna advance your timeing and do a few little things that will cause alot of engine wear. and not much power

Junk... get a real tune! If you want to do it yourself, learn HP Tuners or EFILive...

i bought several years ago a, Hypertech 32002 for my 2001 V6 Camaro.
I replaced my factory tires 215/60/R16, with 245/50/R16 and the speedometer wasn't reading right after that
With the Hypertech 32002, you can correct this, and i removed the speed limiter.
The Hypertech 32002 can also read the error codes, and can reset them.
That's make it worth for me,

the diablosport predator offers many more adjustable parameters, plus has MUCH better tunes included in it..
PLUS, you can get custom tuning done for it as well - by diablosport CMR custom tuners (like myself), to dial in your car even more...
you can't do that with the "other" one...06MonteSS

hp tuners/efi live. handhelds are just not worth it. so much more options. whether you learn it or just get somebody who can tune it for you, than there is no reason to think about a handheld for any gm that uses obdII.
