Did you buy the X-2 used with tunes on it, or did you buy tunes.

As long as you bought tunes and have them on your PC, then yes you can get tunes from Matt without losing Eric's tunes. I believe the X-2 holds 3 tunes.

Here's how it works, when you hook up your SCT device to your PC to change tunes. Your PC overwrites the tune on the SCT and puts a copy of the new tune in the SCT device, so you still have the original on your PC.

Now if someone were to buy a used SCT with custom tunes on it, and then buys someone else's tunes to use, then when they go to put in the new tunes, the old ones will be overwritten with the new ones. Now they have lost the old tunes because they don't/can't save them onto there PC.

Right now on my X-3, I have X-race from Eric, SRL++ from Matt, and agg/tow from Vivian.

We musta been posting at same time, you pick and choose what tunes to replace on the x2, you don't have to replace all 3 every time you hook it to your pc

Buy the seat of the pants, they feel the same power wise.

Matt's tunes have better street manors, they downshift almost immediately when you get on the skinny pedal.

Eric's X-race locks the converter up in 2nd gear, so let's say your cruising around 45mph and start to climb up a hill. With the converter locked, and maintaing the same pedal position with your foot, it lugs the motor down because the converter is locked. The converter wont unlock unless you tap the brakes or lay on skinny pedal. Now you can unlock the converter by either laying on the skinny pedal real hard so it unlocks the converter and downshift, or you can get off skinny pedal, tap the brake and get back on the skinny pedal just a tad harder.

Don't get me wrong, both tunes are great. With Eric's tunes, there is a bit of a learning curve if you want to use it as a daily driver. The X-race is basically a track file, yes you can use it as a daily driver, but it really shines from dead stop to WOT. With Matt's tunes, no learning curve.
