I think your buddy now has a problem as you cannot return his truck to stock. Tuners are NOT meant for more then one truck. Some one like eric can chime in and better explain it but this is my understanding.

Are the strategys between the two trucks different?

Im assuming you already let him try it. So you had to return yours to stock. As long as you did that he can return his to stock and you can use it again.

Just so you know you only get 5 unlocks with your SCT. and now you have used 2 or maybe 3

I don't think that is the case. You can use the programmer on several vehicles returning each one to stock when done, SCT has only 5 locks/unlocks.
As long as you switch vehicles after the programmer is returned to stock. You can then use it on different vehicles.

Did you return it to stock before you loaded it on his truck?
