If you buy a used sct that has custom tunes loaded can you safetly load those into a truck with a different strategy?
Sometimes, depends on the year truck. The '03-'04 trucks use a different strategy base for tunes, and won't work in the '05-'07 trucks and vise versa.
Even then, the tunes might not work on a different strategy truck or work to there full potential. The seller also might have more or less mods than the buyer. Some tune writers prefer to use a different strategy that you have, because that particular strategy runs better.
It's not like the custom tunes are that expensive, just buy custom tunes for your truck mods and strategy, this way if you don't like something about the tune, have the tune writer set it up the way you like it. That's the beauty of custom tunes.
