you have to go to the sct site, and update it first, do you have your custom tunes already written and available?

YOu should be able to load the "canned tunes", but if your wanting to use custom tunes you will have to pull the strategy off you truck and send it to a tunner. After they recieve your strategy, they will send you tunes via email.
