    Thank you.. I book markets it and will use that if i buy HP tunes. Now how does that work can you buy the program and use it on more than 1 car? or do they sell a unlimited Vin copy? Thanks

    when you buy it, it comes with 8 credits to start you off. it takes 2 credits to open your vehicle. once you do that, you can tune as much as you want. you only use credits to do an initial tune to a vehicle.

    98 Formula
    06 duramax

    They're both capable of doing pretty much the same things. Hptuners has a price advantage at $649 for pro vs EFILive at $749. With hptuners you can get 8 credits which can do up to 4 cars depending on what cars they are and how many credits they take. With efilive you get 2 cars and 98's are free. Hptuners has a better support base although both have websites with helpful forums. Efilive has a better manual that comes with it that will help beginners along better.

    Buy him one and I'd be willing to bet he'd set you up with a helluva write up Whatcha think, mrr, a little C6 in Atomic Orange would do the trick, right? LOL
