How Does The Process Work? Below is a step-by-step overview of our custom tuning process.
Once you’ve selected the tuner that best fits your needs, place your order online or via phone for the tuner that best fits your needs. If ordering online, please input your vehicle information and select your tunes via our drop-down menus. If your pcm code off of your vehicle is the most current calibration from Ford we will tune your vehicle based on your submitted information. If the coding is not current based on Ford’s current TSB’s, a blank device will be sent to you.
1.Upon receiving your blank tuner, connect the tuner to your vehicle’s OBD-II port with the radio, heat, A/C and other general accessories that require power turned off and pull your ECU strategy code and/or ECU SWPN.
2.With the device plugged your device into the vehicles OBD-II port select “Vehicle Info.”
1.With the X4 and BDX devices you will need to press the center button.
2.For the LiveWire, iTSX and GTX devices you will press select on the screen.
3.For Diablo InTune devices please follow the steps included with your device.
•Write down your vehicle strategy code or ECU SWPN part number.
?For 1996 – 2014 vehicle strategy codes are listed under “ECU Strategy.”
For 2015+, vehicle strategy code is listed under “ECU Strategy & ECU SWPN.”
For 2011+ 6.7L Ford Diesel applications, we will need ECU Strategy, ECU SWPN, TCU Strategy and TCU SWPN.
For other diesel applications, we will need your ECU Strategy & TCU Strategy codes.
•Select exit & then unplug your device.
3.Email the code(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.Please allow 24-48 hours to receive your custom tunes. Once your custom tunes have been created, you’ll be emailed files from email@example.com. If you need assistance, please take a look at our support page or call technical support directly at 281-837-7228.
5.Once the tunes are loaded onto the device, you may proceed to tune your vehicle.
6.Plug the device back into your OBD-II port and select program vehicle. Once selected choose your custom tune you wish to program you vehicle with and follow the onscreen prompts.
Note: SCT’s software is only compatible with Microsoft’s Windows operating systems. For OS other than Windows, we recommend the Bully Dog BDX or Diablo InTune tuners. The Bully Dog BDX will support custom tuning via wifi whereas the Diablo InTune is supported via OSX.
