Strategy Changed???

On the way home from work this afternoon my check engine came on. When I got home I connect my SCT X3 to pull the codes, but it showed no codes. I loaded a new tune in it this morning before I left for work and it ran great. I did notice this afternoon that my strategy number has changed since last Monday. It was VXCF9N4, but it's now VXCF4H2 when I pull it up on the SCT. I was just curious if the SCT programmer can also changes the strategy number?

I REALLY like the the custom tunes I got from Vivian. She offered to make any tweaks to her tunes that I wanted, but I've yet to see anything that needs tweaking. The looney tune is awesome!!!

Thanks,
Jim

Yes as long as its in the same family they can do that.

The only thing the SCT cannot change is the FICM strategy
