Ordered Up An SCT

Well I finally ordered up a new Programmer for the 6.0. I went with the SCT Livewire TS, time to dtch the Bully Dog PMT. Is anyone else running the Livewire, How do you like it?

Like it so far, canned tunes are pretty strong. I'm running IDP Xtreame Street now. If you are going to use the EGT kit, To display EGT you will need to select analog 7

FYI- after using a BullyDod product, you may have to have your ECM reflashed back to stock from the dealer. BullyDog leaves in some of its garbage in the stock ECM, this conflicts with the SCT.

Any of You guys/girls heard of a shop called MPT "MorePowerTuning"?

I bought my SCT off amazon and the seller MPT included 3 custom Tunes on top of what SCT offers as canned tunes.

The 3 Tunes are labeled as follows

1. Bazooka: is all out performance, hold on tight. Faster Turbo Spool, More boost, Good Times.

2. SmokeBomb: will roll some coal but is not nearly as fast as the bazooka, its more show than go.

3. PerfEcon: performance and economy Hybrid. Drive easy and get great mileage, mash it and go.

Reviews have came back as "OK" tunes, but not as good as the big tune writers.

list of tunes and where to get them?

Big Brown Van made a drop at my house today...

Updated it, installed it and drove it. Driving like a grandpa while the tranny etc are in relearn but I'm quite pleased with the canned tunes compared to what the Bully Dog PMT was offering. I look forward to the custom tunes though, should hopefully have them by Monday or Tuesday.

The layout is fairly simple to use, need a bit more time to play with it though.

Any of you guys notice if your screen lightly flickers?
