Default Which is the best tuner for ecoboost

I'm thinking about looking for a tune for my 2012 Ecoboost. I'm looking for a good one for a good price. Well as cheap as I can with out losing anything in it.

Man you just opened up a can of worms. So IMO Livernois $599 holds 4 tunes plus Stock tune and do not have to pay for any extra tunes they have performance and towing just have to email Rick and he will email them to you for free. Get ready for all kinds of opinions. Enjoy

Yea I thought about that right after I sent it. I just want one to play around with. I'm not towing anything.

Nice thing about the SCT tuner is can use a preloaded tune and always have the option of getting custom tunes from a variety of places to try out as the 3015 can hold up to three custom tunes as well as the three preloaded tunes on it already.

i agree... it seems like most the custom tuners are using the sct platform. I would get a SCT. Cant beat the price from Franchi ether.

When ya have a great tune you won't be switching every day to try something, if it works you will just leave it.

I have a livernois tune and it has been absolutely flawless and still makes me and passengers shake their head that they are riding in a v6.

Honeslty I am not knocking any of the other competitors in the tuning game, hell I had plans of buying both an SCT and my livernois, but frankly if it works why change it? I know there are options out there for some other tunes like unleashed or 5*, some of them have a strong tow tune, some have a strong performance tune, etc. By the time you fill up the SCT with custom tunes from all the heavy hitters you are at almost the same cost, and the headache of shopping around and loading/unloading tunes on my pc is not for me, I just want them on there and go, but again that is JMO.
