I need a tuner?

Hello I just picked up my 07 outlaw last week and love it, I put in a s&b cold air kit and a mbrp 4" exhaust. I can't figure out what to buy for a turner??? I like the edge because you can adjust on the fly and have a egt /boost readout, The banks pda kit it the same, alot of people talk about the sct. Any comments welcome.....thanks

I think the overwhelming majority of this crowd will tell you SCT is the way to go.

And Welcome to TDG!!!!!!!

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

I don't really care about peak hp numbers, but want a good street program that will increase hp , but want a safe tune

The SCT is the one that has the safest hp and controls your trans too to keep it from getting burned up. You can put 3 tunes on the SCT and you can choose which 3 you want. I run a "street" tune from ID. It's a great daily driver with plenty of power when you need to pass or feel like racing someone without having to worry about excessively high egt's or head pressures. There are more powerful tunes but then you should start thinking about upgrading head studs etc.

A custom tuned SCT is the ticket.

My recommendation... Go out and get a Superchips 1805 Flashpaq. You will love it!! Good power, tight shifting! :deal:

Only issue with a superchips is it is not updateable, not ajustable, and you are stuck with there tunes... With a SCT, there are ten or more tuners just on this site...
