- Please enter vehicle year, trans type, computer code or strategy, and mods.
- When ordering, specify your gear ratio and tire size if other than stock.
- Many areas now have 10% ethanol mixed into the fuel, often called "E10". Ethanol has a much lower energy content than gasoline, and effectively leans out the air fuel ratio, as much as .3-.5 A/F when there is a full 10% present. If your area does not use E10 at all select "No", if you think it may use E10 or the pumps say "up to 10% ethanol" select "Maybe", if you are sure all the fuel is a full 10% ethanol select "Yes".
- You must provide the serial number from the back of your flasher when ordering. If there is no sticker on it you can go into the Device Info menu on the tuner and find it.
- If you are using a different CAI kit than stock or what came with the SC please let us know.
- All specialty custom tunes include 6 months of support from date of purchase.
- If you provide us with datalogs and/or dynographs we will review them and if necessary send an adjusted tune at no charge.
- If you make basic modifications to the vehicle that can not be accounted for with on device adjustments we will send you an updated tune at no charge.
SCT flasher on-device adjustments:
- Your specialty custom tune file will include SCT on-device adjustments (click for available parameter list)
- Our tunes are designed to be very repeatable and safe. However, if you have the opportuning to datalog your vehicle we recomend you do so. We will review these logs at no charge. With our tune the air to fuel ratio throughout the RPM range at Wide Open Throttle should be between 11.2-11.8:1.
- We do not recommend increasing spark advance without consulting with us first.
- You may adjust for different gears or tires.
- Automatics may firm up or soften the shift points at all throttle positions.
- Automatics may increase or decrease WOT shift point RPM.
- We safely raise the rev limiters in our tunes, we do not recommending increasing it further.
- The speed limiter is removed, but don't exceed the speed rating of your tires or driveshaft.
After you have ordered:
- Depending on the year and computer code we may need you to read the current file out of the PCM, we will contact you with instructions if this is necessary.
- When we email the custom tune file to you a datalogging configuration file will also be included for SCT's Live Link datalogging software, we recommend using the latest version from the support section of SCT's website
- This file can be loaded into Live Link by opening the software, connecting the flasher to your PC and vehicle with the key on, going to the File Menu then to Open Configuration and then by browsing your hard drive for the .CF2 file.
- To datalog your car you'll need to warm it up, start datalogging at idle for 30 seconds, then slowly rev it to the rev-limiter over a period of 15-25 seconds, then make a WOT pull in 2nd gear starting at 1000RPM and going to 5000RPM. Try to put all of this information into one short datalog file and email it to Justin@VMPTuning.com. If the file is larger than 1 megabyte you will need to compress it.
- If you have a wideband you may connect it to your flasher using these instructions .
- Your vehicle should be in good mechanical condition and maintenance up to date.
- Never over-oil a KN type filter. If you have recently oiled the filter the MAF sensor element should be cleaned.
- Spark plugs gapped down to .030-.035" are a must for any vehicle with a supercharger or turbocharger. The 3V head uses a special type of spark plug, at lower boost levels the stock plugs can be regapped, at higher boost levels a colder plugs is recommended like the Autolite HT0.
- Premium fuel must be used with any power adder.
- The fuel filter should be replaced every 20,000-30,000 miles to ensure adequate fuel delivery.
- Files will be emailed in .CEF format
- It is recommended that you use an X-Cal2, X3 or Livewire for their datalogging capabilities.
- If you have an 07+ Automatic truck with an X2 you will need the latest firmware from SCT v1.15
