Sct Livewire tunes

Ok here goes. I bought a sct Livewire used. The guy I bought it from said it had custom tunes from innovative on it but there is no tunes in the custom section when I go to load a tune. In the preloaded section there is tow, street,xtreme mild, xtreme street and xtreme race. Can anyone tell me if these are the "canned" sct tunes or not. Also there is five trans tune options. My understanding is that sct didn't come with these. Can anyone clear this up for me?

I don't have an SCT LW but those tune names are the ones Eric sells. Is the strategy that's on your truck match the strategy on the truck the custom tunes were made for? If not, your risk screwing up your truck. They are custom made tunes for a reason... They are CUSTOM to each individual truck. Yes, some trucks run the same strategy but chances of having the same one is very very rare! Load those tunes with caution.

I'm not sure how your going to find out what strategy the tunes where made for with asking the previous owner. Asking Eric at ID won't help because your basically asking him to help you get his tunes (which aren't cheap) for free. I'm It trying to bust your ba!!s, just being a realist. Let us know how it goes and I hope you didn't pay extra for the LiveWire just because it had custom tunes on it.

Yeah I doubt the previous owner has a clue. I'm not trying to get anything for free but ill see what ID can do. If I have to ill buy new tunes from him. I got it for $400. Not a bad price for a off road tuner these days. Even better if I can run these tunes.

It just clicked (lightbulb, lol) that you have a 6.4 powerstroke and Eric doesn't ask for strategy codes when ordering tunes from him ... BUT, he does ask for your PCM Number so you still may be screwed. Best bet is to just give him a call like you already planned. Make sure and post yours results cause I'm curious now!

The tunes load and work good from what I can tell. This thing gets it on the xtreme street tune. I'm going to stop in to innovative when I'm done working.

You must live in the same town as them.?. Lucky guy! Congrats on the tunes working... Sounds like you got a killer deal seeing as how Eric charges $400 just for LiveWire tunes.
