The EVO is the best code reader and tuner of its kind. The programs are good, but not quite what a custom chip will do. I like how the EVO tells you what the codes mean on the screen so you dont have to look them up in the manual.

There are only 2 tuners I like and would use. The Edge Evo and the SCT XCAL. All others are not all that good. Dont go Diablo.:shootself:

i would not use anything but the dp-tuner setups, I have had the evo, ts-6 pos, bully dog 6-pos, superchips hard mount, and a superchips tuner. I have had the best results with dp's products as they are custom and work well with the mpg's as well as egt's. Plus Jody is very knowledgable and good to work with. Just my .02
