SCT tunes?

After researching a lot of pro's and con's on the different tuners i'm going with the SCT. My question is are the tunes that come on the SCT from the factory good? I know that most of you will say get custom tunes, just curious of how good the "canned" tunes are that come on it?

Innovative tunes by Eric are great as well, aggressive steet and race will set you free!!!! As everyone will tell you gauges are the only way to go. I have been told if you use aggressive race without gauges don't get on it hard past 70 mph. These are only my opinions and experiences.
Good luck and have fun.

The canned tunes are probably ok, but they wont hold a candle to a custom tune!

If you like the generic tunes, you'll love the custom.

Innovatives(Erics) customer service is excellent!
You are halfway there- you have the SCT, now call Innovative and get whatever tunes you want as long as they include the Xtreme Street.
You won't regret it!
Woo hoo!
