Reload old stradegy?

My current stradegy is VXAP2N2, I still have my old stradegy (stock tune) saved on my PC thru the SCT software. Would it be possible to load my old stradegy onto my SCT and load it into the truck.

I know when you save your stock file to your PC, it is only making a copy of it, but is it possible to erase the current stock file out of the SCT and reload it with the old stradegy.

Hmmm, that's an interesting question. I would expect that that answer would be no, but I (obviously) don't really know...

That is a good question. I know my stock tune strategy is different than the strategy of my looney tune. I didn't even realize tuners could use a different strategy in a tune as long as it is compatible with your current strategy until a few days ago

If you read the sticky in the performance section that Vivian posted, there are instances where the SCT device has either lost the file or it has been locked out. When you save your stock file to your PC, you can notify SCT and they can convert it for you so you can reload it.

Was this a drunk post? Have you spoken to Vivian (who wrote that article) or someone at SCT?

Ha Ha, not drunk but since you mentioned it, my gonna crack a beer!!

Haven't spoke to Vivian or SCT yet, I was just thinking out loud, if PHP is able to roll back, would it be possible for some of us that have saved our old stradegies and be able to use our SCT to swap back to a more preferred stradegy. According to what I've read on PHP forum, my old stradegy VXAP1N6 is more preferred for the '03 motor.

When I had the old stradegy, it was better seat of pants power and 1-2mpg. Looks like I'm gonna have to research this some more.

That's kind of what I was thinking, too, although that was one of the reasons I asked about the different PCM's in another thread.

I'll admit, I glanced over your thread last week but I didn't soak it in, just reread it again. If no one chimes in, I'll email SCT this week.
