Alright, my birthday is coming up and I have a $200-$300 window here. There's so much out there, you fellas got any opinions for me on what I should purchase? Appearance, performance, etc. It's such a tough choice between all of the stuff out there I need some help. Thanks guys, anything is appreciated.

a tune if you don't have one
THIS. Even a "canned" tune will wake that truck up more than anything else you could spend that money on.
OR...
I bet you'll see a lot of good used SCT live wires up for sale soon, now that their new device is shipping. Maybe on this forum, but also many other venues as well.

Ok. A tune would be awesome. I'll have to keep my eye open. The sct, what is involved in changing tunes on the truck with those? I don't know anything about this kind of stuff so any info will be greatly appreciated.

Plug the sct device into the obd2 port and follow the on screen instructions. Takes about 10 mins to upload tune file to truck. Like vol said there's gonna be a ton of used 3015 and livewires in the near future from people who want the latest models. They all will get the job done it's just personal preference.

What's the advantages/disadvantages between the 3015 and livewire?

Definitely a tune...the new X4 is a great all in one unit, it is the best bang for the buck...read through the thread from kingbalak, lots of good info there.

Let me know if you need any other questions answered.

Don't settle for a bulldog or edge or superchips or the like. A real tune takes the truck to a whole new level

Understood. I've pretty much ruled out a CAI for now because everything I've read, you don't notice hardly any performance. And as much as I love turbo noise, it ain't worth the $350. Still want an exhaust too.

SCT tuners are the best option to go with. Bulldog, Superchips, and Livernois' AIW tuners have little to no support from outside companies. and yes, I run Livernois.... For now (LET May just be able to persuade me into a new tune).
