SCT Question

i bought a used SCT X3 from a guy on it back in dec and finally got around to hooking it up to my truck tonight.its the older tuner with the 3 pre programmed tunes.tonight while i was looking at the tunes on it i went to install a canned tune and it only had 1 there and then had 3 custom tunes and i installed the 1 preprogrammed tune but dont know what it is and it made a heck of a difference but shifts like crap.set it back to stock and am going to get Erick's tunes friday if i can get up says it has 5 unlocks availible.does that sound right with the 1 preprgrammed and 3 custom?the custom tunes say street comp,street MS and tow are these the canned tunes?

When you first power up the SCT does it say who it came from? Some will have the tuner's name or company name or logo there? Also do you know the strategy of the vehicle that the tuner was on before you got it or was it a new unit?
