    I know there are tunes out there for the 6.2 and 8 speed, but what about the 8 speed with the 5.3...???

    I've Talked with most all "tuner" companies and they tell me they don't support the 5.3 with the 8 speed yet...

    I am assuming it's a 17 right? More of an issue that no one has broken a 17 yet

    Mine is a '16 that I purchased in September of this year. Most of them told me to check back early next year and they might have it ready for me...

    Yea still don't know how it's possible
    Seems odd since the 5.3 and the 8spd are not new and they don't share a computer
