SCT strategy problems

Hey guys i ordered a X-3 from innovative diesel and i got the X-3 but im still waiting on them to send me my tunes. They said they need my strategy that starts with "VX" and i hooked up the X-3 to the truck and it pulled two different strategy's and niether of them started with VX. Is this a big problem or will Eric still be able to write me tunes. i think the problem might be that i know a ford engineer and he reprogramed my ECU for a little bit more power and dont get me the truck rips with his file on there but of course i want the power #'s from innovative. Has anyone else ran into this problem. i guess wat im saying is do i have to reflash my ECU back to stock?

Innovative may have just guessed that it would s tart with those two letters. Those two sets of numbers and letters are your entire strategy. That is what they need.

I would think they would charge you like 100-150 to reflash unless you have a buddy at a stealership.
