Ok, so I'm pretty much back to square one here. After lots of research both on here, and around locally I had decided to go with the SCT X3 programmer. However, after looking into gauges I decided to go with the Edge Insight CST. Then, I stumbled across the SCT TCX. For not much more money than the X3 and the Insight, it is basically both in one. So, I had decided this is what I wanted to get. But, then I got to thinking. I have an extra laptop that I'm not doing much with, and I know they make all sorts of diagnostic software for PC's to plug into the PCM. So, my question is does anybody make a good programmer software? It seems like they should, but I can't seem to find any. Anyone know of a Superchip, or SCT, or Banks quality software that will allow me to program from my computer?
Yes, SCT sells the PRO RACER software to write your own tunes. But, if you don't know what your doing, like adding too much timing,fuel,ect you could damage your expensive motor. You really need to know what your doing when programming these trucks.
There is member who posted up about the TSX, everytime he returned the truck back to stock, he lost an unlock. We only get 5 unlocks for the SCT, once they are gone you gotta send it back to SCT to be reset and that will cost you a fee.
