    There is Wheatley and Nelson, there are good and bad about both. I am sure there are others locally.

    Meh, Nelson might have a better in shop tune, but their mail order tunes blow. Had nothing but problems ever since the first one

    My current tune is ehh, trucks runs and drives great but id like to change alot of the shifting but my tuner went MIA.
    Current shift points for 1-2 & 2-3 are around 5700rpms lol want them above 6k.
    Jared, how do you like your blackbear? Ive always heard good things about them.

    I like my BBP tune, but, I will say, sometimes it is nice to have a local tuner who can address any issue right then without downtime, or get the autocal.

    If I do more mods I will go local most likely, but Dallas has some really bad ass tuners locally that I can access pretty easily.

    Who ever did ckfarrel's tune I would stay far away from. I think it was Nelson. He has blown two trannies with the 6.2 and 6l80e with a cam only truck

    The only reason I didn't go with bbp. I want to be able to go straight to the guy if I need something
