i havent used my xcal yet cuz im still build my turbo engine, but over on the turbo site, ive heard nothing but good things about the xcal 2. not too many people have the xcal 3 since i think it just cam out around christmas. but from what i understand theres only a few thing that are better, like i think it'll hold 2 more tunes, and one other thing that slips my mind.
DONT buy a used one unless you know for a fact that its unlocked. once its hooked up to a truck and the stock program is downloaded, it locks itself to the vehicles vin. if its locked, then you gotta send it to sct for them to unlock it, and i believe its like another 150 for them to do it. somtimes you can find an unlocked xcal on ebay, thats where i got mine. your gonna wanna try to get a xcal 9400, thats the version that comes completely empty. the 9415, comes programmed with like 1 tune for your vehicle, if they have a program for it.
as for this bama tuner, i have no idea what that is.
