Is EFI-Live all that?

I'm getting bored with my HotJiuce, and want MORE POWER! I keep hearing about EFI Live and how its the newest and coolest...

Is it the best way to go to get to 500HP?

EFI Live is the tool to get you there. Many have been purchasing loaded ECM's from tuners rather than go the road themselves. It's quite a rewarding feeling to get there, BUT it's not an easy task to do especially if you want driveability.

Comparing EFI Live to programmers is like comparing cave drawing to computers.

Once you use it and see all the great things you can do, you'll never go back.

If you mod or race your max, you need this.

EFI live costs less than most tuners out there. I believe the personal version is $699 and the commercial version is $749. Both versions allow logging of all you engine parameters. Both come with two licenses. You need a license to program an ECM(engine) or an Allison TCM(transmission) The commercial version enables TCM programing and bidirectional control over the Allison while driving or on the dyno. You can also clear and reset Allison taps with the commercial version. If you get the personal version, you can upgrade it at any time via EFI lives website. The website offers additional PCM/TCM licenses and other items also. It is the next generation of tuning. This is the tool to get you to wherever you want to be. All it takes is time and patience.

He didn't say it was crappy, but didn't run the extreme to compare
