Takes like 13 minutes to load off the computer onto the smarty, and like 5 or six minutes to load to the truck. It's pretty smooth really, and smarty will not load to your truck if there is a problem with the software. Say it didn't load off your computer right, and you try to load it to your truck. It won't do it, so as not to mess up your truck. It kind of stinks that you need to reload everytime you change the sw's, and even if you just want to turn up the torque, timing, or fueling within the same sw, you have to reload it. But still it only takes 5 or 6 minutes. Also if there is ever a problem while loading it to the truck, say you kick the obd2, and it comes unplugged. When you plug it back in Smarty will automatically help you put the stock tune back in, and then you can start to load again. It's pretty dummie proof, but can be a little confusing when downloading the software, and getting all you need on your computer, just to get it set up. USB drivers and all that stuff. You talked about putting it on a stock truck, and I think it would be fine. Marco has all of these tunes, even the "me" tunes nearly smoke free. So if any of you are looking for smoke, smarty is not for you. He has it all maximized for economy, and smooth power. Later on some race tunes will be coming out, and I would imagine there will be some smoke with them. I'm not saying sw7, and sw9 don't smoke at all, but not near as much as xrt. I love it. Oh and I think xrt is like a 15 to 20 minute load to the truck.
