None of the pre-programmed off the shelf programmers will defeat emissions devices these days. The Feds have cracked down on that because of the rampant DPF deletes that were going on with the '07.5/08+ emissions equipment. About two years ago now, the Feds sent out notice to all aftermarket tuning companies threatening huge fines. SCT had sold DPF delete pipes and programmers to compliment, and they even offered a buyback of all Off-Road emissions delete programmers.
Any used devices you buy, regardless of age, you will be instructed to update the firmware and tune files to the latest versions, or SCT will not support them. That's to cover themselves to make sure that they are in compliance with Fed regs. Any tuning to defeat the emissions systems on your vehicle will have to come from an independent custom tune provider.
