Mine came in last week, haven't installed it yet due to my truck being in the shop (I should get to pick it up today).

Got one in my 05 haven't had any problems with it, if it doesn't already have it make sure to get the newest updates. have mine set for data monitoring on the startup plus with the time out features don't have worry about forgetting to turn it off. Turbo mustang i found eot in the 6.4 parameters don't know if its actually reading the eot on a 6.0 ??? and it seems to be in celsius not fahrenheit? cant comment on the battery life have mine mounted in the truck hardwired.

It is a pretty good price if you get all the updates... talk to Matt at SCT he will help with the EOT issues.

Try the latest firmware update, it should fix all of those issues.

The last firmware update I did, SCT told me I had to use the firmware from the x3 because the TSX program was messed up. is that fixed now?

Would that be Firmware Version 1.1.111?

Hello Sir
who from SCT told you that you needed to use the X3 firmware?
