No you cant do that

The tunes are written to the serial number on the tuner. They wont work on another tuner.

That honestly depends. Eric has base files that he adds parameters too.

For example if you have two trucks sitting next to each other with the exact same mods and everything else is the exact same the file should be the same or close to it.

Unless one guy asked for some major changes of course

Now if you throw a different part in the engine trans or rearend of the truck the file will be different.

The tunes are serial number locked to the device to prevent scenerios like the OP was describing

Well the tune would work great on the truck, but the problem would be getting the tune loaded on the SCT. It won't let you load a file unless it's serial numbers match.

Those still work. That was before they started locking tunes to serial numbers

Yep those were the old .ll3 files, before SCT pushed out a new software update which required the tuners to enter in the serial number when creating a custom file. All the files now end in .cef.
