Finally got the SCT working
I ended up having to ship my xcal2 back to SCT for a free repair. I kept getting the infamous -250 changes left error message. LiveLoad was giving me the VIN locked error, but it wasn't.
I shipped it back to SCT, they repaired it, and shipped it back out the SAME day. I need to give them a HATS OFF and a praise report. I was very pleased with their customer service.
2nd hats off- Eric at Innovative Diesel Performance.
He diligently worked with me back and forth until we gave up and determined that my xcal2 needed to be repaired. I ordered the economy, tow, and street tune from him. All I can say is SHAZAAAMM! Unbelievable how much power a custom tune can make.
I have tried to economy tune and the tow tune. I left the tow tune in and I simply cannot keep my stock sized 17 inchers glued to the road at WOT. It really wont stop burning them until I let off the pedal. I am somewhat intimidated to try to the street tune.
To summarize, for less than $300, I got an sct xcal2 with 5 unlocks left and 3 custom tunes from Eric at IDP.
Its a Merry Christmas!
