SCT Tuner Question

I am looking at buying a SCT Tuner but I have a question hopefully you guys can help me with. Can you read and delete codes like I can with my Superchips? I want to sell my superchip tuner to help generate some money, but I won't if the SCT won't read codes. I would also like to hear some of your guys experiences with these tuners. Or what tuner is the best to buy? It seems a lot of people really like the SCT. Thanks any help is much appreciated.

SCT IS the way to go, it will read codes like your superchip, when i first got my 6.0 i had a superchip and when i went to the SCT for the first time all i could say was INSANE lol, the power is great, and we can tune it anyway you want.
pm me with any ?'s or if you want price

I forgot to add this, but what does it do for transmission performance? And how do the transmissions shift with these programmers on a performance tune? Thanks guys.

You can have the trans programed to shift as hard or soft as you want. The SCT is awesome. You can run errands all day and it drives smooth and nice, then spank a ricer on the way home while grabbing 2nd gear scratch with an auto.
If you wait a little longer SCT is coming out with their "Livewire". It has built in guages like an Attitude, but the performance of the SCT.

would the sct work w/ a 6spd trans or do you need an auto to install it?

how does it turn off the egr, and is there anything else that needs to be done when turning off the egr, like removeng it or blocking it off?

I'll think I'll wait for the livewire version then. Have any idea how much it will cost? Again thanks guys!

The SCT works for the manual transmission trucks as well. The SCT tuning tells the ECM to disengage the EGR.
