SCT Files

Okay I am taking the plunge, Buying an SCT SF3. I know it comes with preloaded files, but I want to know where I can get reliable custom tunes. You all talk of the custom ones, I gota have them. I have an 04, minor mods. By the way whats the cost also. What gauges do you peoplw recomend also. Thanks...

i believe they run about $430 or so, maybe a tad more. they come with " 3 canned, or generic " tunes. i would recommend that you go with Innovative Diesel for your custom tuning needs, but you are welcome to choose someone else if you wish. I believe going with the custom tuning for the extreme files from innovative is an additional $80 or so. it seems like a lot but it is really worth it.

the new SCT X3 will only allow for 3 tunes.... if you go with custom tunes like the innovative one we sell it will come blank.. once you get us your strategy you get your tunes via email....

If you already have the SCT ordered and can't cancel it, you can get 3 custom tunes from Innovative for $150 for an existing tuner. That's what I did with mine since my tuner came from somebody else initially.

Well, thanks people, I would guess that inovative is the place to get it all. And "Raul" I have yet to get gauges. I will, though. I had the EGT probe installed when I had the edge Evo installed, So I have a place for the new egt. I need a boost and egt gauge setup right, I would guess, these are the most common here on the threads. My next big project will be the H/Studs, But not till I actually blow something up. Thanks to all who responded.....
