tunner advice please

what tunner would you guys recomend for a hard headed old timer that refuses to do anything to his truck that would help it pull and tow his camper better? he is willing to try a tunner but no exhaust or intake or gauges.?????

i wouldn't reccomend getting a tuner with out gauges but if he is going to get one superchips is a very safe unit.

SCT and an Pyro should do the trick. I'd recommend a pyro when towing, even stock...cheap insurance.

I agree totally with LIPD's comments. The Superchips will give him some more power but it is a very mild programmer. He will notice an increase but it is probably one of the safer units. Only thing with the SCT, I'd be afraid to run any kind of tune with it because, being custom, you kind of never really know what you get exactly and one tune can run slightly different on one truck than another, hell, one tune can run different on the same truck when reloading, so I'd hate to recommend any custom SCT file w/o gauges. Go with the mild Superchips unit.

Explain to him the only way to tow safe without gauges is stock..D71 then present his options to him....tell him some stuff you have sceen and what it costs to fix....My wifes Excursion runs Eric's street tune (nicely I might add) with no gauges (spent the money on mine..lol..) cause she does not look at them....she pulls her two horses and some round bales every now and then.....

thanks for all the help guys. i have been round after round with him on this and he still says tunner and nothing else. so today in fear that i may lose him as a customer i said i would not intall a tunner of any kind without a egt gauge. he was not very happy and said he would look at doing it himself. :shrug: and his friend or someone he knows has a tunner and didnt put all that bull sh** on his truck. so now i kinda hope something goes wrong so i can say told you solaugh thats if he come back to have me work on it????
