SCT SF3 Pre-Loaded Tunes.

Im looking into the SF3 and it says it comes with pre-loaded tunes. I cant seem to find out what kind of tunes they are though. Id like to know how many are pre-loaded, what they are, and expirences with them. Thanks.

Here is SCT explanation of them.
http://www.sctflash.com/support/inde...eid=45&nav=0,3

You will have 5 pre-loaded tunes, Economy, Tow 50hp, Tow 65hp, Street, Performance, and Trans only.

These tune will wake up the motor, and better trans shifting. They are OK for generic tunes, but you'll benefit better with custom tunes.

I just put the performance strategy tune from the sf3 in my truck today and man what a huge difference it makes really wakes the truck up not so noticeable in regular slow acceleration but if you step on her a bit it is awesome!!

I was driving on the canned street race tune for a few weeks and it was way better then stock. Now Im running the super panty dropper tune and what a diffrence. If you can get the SCT with the canned tunes for cheap then go ahead but if you can save that money and get a custom tune you would be better off.

$75-$80..not bad at all..

I second the super panty dropper...my wifes panties flew right off soon as I floored it

I was running the canned tunes on my SCT for about 2 weeks, after reading all the threads on people loving their custom tunes, I emailed chris at TSD, got my super panty dropper and mild panty dropper at the end of the day, and was dropping panties in my truck after dinner
