Hmm, my x2 did that to me, but that was cause the stored stock program was for a manual trans truck

That's weird, how'd you get a manual trans stock tune?

Bought it used, was new to the whole tuning diesels thing, x2 came with tunes that matched my stratergy, I just didn't ask if they where auto or manual. When I talked to SCT they said on the x2 you have to manually clear the stock program stored on it through a pc.
