Steve!!...I've already told you where to go if you have issues with your truck. Don't sweat it man! Hollister is closer than dublin. PM me if you have any issues or questions man.

ALright guys i just got the sct today. The guy on ebay said it was in his 05 f250, and he had 3 tunes from ID. Now when i go to select the program to upload it has 3, one tow, street and race, are those the ones that come ID? how can i verify? also i just uploaded the race one, and i revd it half throttle and the rpms just flew to 4k rpms, and i just saw a huge black cloud of smoke, had a little smirk on my face i must say

any usb cable should be fine. Looks like you got a good deal! Keep a light foot and you will be good to go.

Like darsey said, befoer loading them you should have gotten your strategy and sent to innovative for them to make tunes for your truck. The tunes that were on there were for the other guys truck. Im not sure what all could be messed up, but I would wait till you got your own tunes
