I have the super chips flash paq and I like it. There isnt a whole lot you can do for milage except drive slower or maybe cold air intake. But my chip has helped in the power department quite a bit!

I wouldn't bother with eBay. Get something good.

You can get an SCT X3 from several places. LaSota Racing, Henson Performance, Rogue Performance, etc.

You have to get in contact with them and give them the information from your truck. An SCT X3 isn't just an off-the-shelf programmer. They are more customized tunes than what you get from Superchips so they are better. They aren't any more expensive than some Superchips programmers either.

how much does sct charge you each time you upgrade ex exhaust throttle body etc... for the custom tune on the programmer

SCT doesn't, the dealer does, and it varies based on who you work with and tune complexity.
