WOW!!!

Well I took the plunge, received my sct programmer today and holy crap, kind of scared me a little the first time I got on it. I was always a little skeptical reading all of the stories from other guys about their fist time with the tuners, but today I'm a believer. Still have a lot of learning to do, for example, my Scangauge II will not display my EOT, FICM, and a couple other PID's. Anybody have this same problem? Thanks.

Is your scangauge II flashed for the powerstroke PIDS or just a stock scangauge II, quite sure you need a powerstroke specific monitor

I had to program the Scangauge to all the PID's that I wanted to monitor. Worked great before the sct.

You do need to load the powerstroke codes. It is simple just a little time consuming. Just go to scan gauge web site and they have all the codes needed to enter

I did that the day I bought the scangauge. And it worked awesome. I'll have to do some more playing in the morning.

My scangauge11 did the same the first run after installing the sct. The next time I drove it everything was back to pre sct. This was just on 7/1/13 also.

I don't remember having any issues with my ScanGuage after installing the tune from the SCT. Its been a year though and I get forgetful.

Don't feel bad I'm still scared of 8k tow. No 6.0 should be that fast.
