Just bought a new SCT X3, Now What?

OK. Just bought a used SCT X3 that has never been used. Programmer was setup for an '06 6.0 with a new exhaust and intake. My '05 has a new exhaust and intake as well. When I get this thing, can I safely assume that I will be able to reflash my truck with one of the pre-canned tunes? The tunes were provided by DJ. My intent is to talk to Eric and get a Tow Tune and then an EGR Delete daily driving tune.

Is all this possible? Been doing some searching but nothing has completely anwered my question. Thanks much for any input fellas.

You can only use DJ's tunes on there if they are written for the same strategy as your truck and thats unlikely

Thanks Dave,

That's another thing I'm trying to figure out... The whole "Strategy" thing. I assume it's technical talk dealing with your tune setup? I know I have to run the programmer on my truck, pull the strategy and then send that back in to Eric or someone to complete the tune. Is that a correct statement?
