PPE makes a pretty good canned tuner but anyone who has made the switch from canned tuning to custom tuning with EFI Live will tell you its night and day different. With EFI Live and the right tuner, you get a tune that is setup specifically for your truck and how its configured. Unlike a canned tuner that is setup to work across many different configurations. Plus, you get on the fly changes with the use of a DSP5 switch or in the LB7 and early LLYs you can switch your tunes with an Edge Insight too. Now instead of having to pull out a PPE Hot or other canned tuner to change what tune you are using, installing the new tune, then putting it away, you simply rotate the switch and off you go. Power, responsiveness, shifting and fuel economy are all typically better with custom tuning.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Of the canned tuners, PPE is one of the best but the customization EFI offers is simply an order of magnitude better solution (ease of use, drivability, performance, fuel economy, etc). Have a look at any thread where someone gave up a canned tuner for EFI and you'll get an idea of what you're missing pretty quickly.
