buying a used SCT

If you buy a used SCT with custom tunes can you use the custom tunes on your truck?

If not what does it take to make them work?

Also, can you turn your egr valve off with out custom tunes on the SCT??


Thanks for any help, I'm new to programmers and such....

when I bought my SCT used I had to get new custom tunes all you do is call the tuner of your choice: DJ, Innovative, Spartain, DFuser who ever you chose tell them the info they need and they will email the custom tunes to you and you just load it on the programmer its not hard

If you buy a used SCT, you will need to make sure it was taken back to stock, else it will cost you $150 for SCT to unlock it for you.

As far as what you need to set it up depends on what model of SCT you are purchasing. The tuner can turn off the egr for you. You cannot turn the egr off yourself.

Thanks,
Vivian
