To answer your questions.

It's a programmer, so you will be limited to loading a single tune for a specific purpose (tow, economy, race, etc) at a time. It's not hard to hook up. It's simply a plug-n-play sort of thing.

Is it a good programmer? Sure, as far as programmers go. You can even get custom tunes loaded in it from different people.

There are, however, other choices that allow you to switch tunes immediately and you have numerous custom tuners to choose from. Browse through the TDG Vendor section or even post up asking for options and pricing in the Supporting Vendor sub-forum and see what sort of response you get.



Now, to the real issue at hand.

You're building a truck for him?
