When you plugged it in to get the strategy there should have been a bunch of numbers and letters that came up. You take that number and email it to wherever you got the tuner from. I went through Innovative Diesel Performance so I took the strategy number and emailed it along with the mods I had done to the truck. They then send you back the tunes through attachments in an email. You have to install the driver for the tuner on your computer and you load the tunes onto that and then plug the tuner into your computer and load the custom tunes onto the tuner. Then you plug the tuner into your truck and load whatever tune you want into the truck. And away you go. I think it came with instructions on how to do all of this. Where did you get the programmer from?

I have a Sf3 and mine came with a econ tune a extreme tune and a street performance tune also came with 2 tow tunes. i also had idp build me some tunes. when you go into strategy it should give you several options to different tunes.. you prob need to go online and update your software on your sct.. my extreme tune buitl by idp is 525 hp and 900? foot pound toqure
