SCT ? WHAT GIVES?

ok i just got my sct from dj's and since they are gone for the day i installed the tune that came with the x3 from sct. their website says they have a race tune but mine only show a performance as for being the fastest. well my power pup on performance gave this much power and on extreme killed this. im not knocking dj's at all so dont get me wrong vivian was a ton of help and great customer service. do their custom tunes add that much more power that im gonna be happy and not think im making a mistake with ditching my pup? thanks alot

you're gonna be glad you ditched your pup once you get a custom tune for your strategy.

Definitely. I've ran SCT's Street tune back to back against Innovative's Extreme Street tune. Night and day difference.

I agree with MYSTICSVT!!! I ran the canned tune until Viviane got back with me with my custom tune, and it was EXTREMELY different. It becomes a WHOLE new Vehicle!

I ran the pup as well. Sold it and got the X3, alot better at shifting and more responsive.
I ran the looney today, it was amazing!!

Yeah, Looney is awesome, and DJ will do anything with it you want. I asked Vivian if they could tone down the shifts and smoke at light throttle and they had the tune to me the same day. It does exactly what I want too. It's really smooth and drives like stock at light throttle but is a beast when you put your foot in it.
