SCT tunes and FICM Atlas 40 issues?

For anyone who has had the Atlas 40 tune.

Are any of you running a SCT tune with it?

I'm hoping tunes from folks like Vivian or Eric or Matt have had any issues or tune rewrites because of the Atlas 40.

Or, does it matter?

I've got the Gryphon FICM programmer, I've tried the Atlas 40, Atlas 80, and Hercules combined with Matt's, Eric's and Vivian's without issues.

Cool.

Say, do you have any knowledge of the SCT Xcal 2 tuners and if they were decent to use?

I don't need gauges , have plenty of those!!!

Just a tool for tunes.

Got a buddy that runs the Atlas 80 and Matt's SRL tune with no issues. His is an 03 Ex.

The only difference that I know of between the X2 and X3 is the X2 has less data log capabilities.

That is what I was thinking. I can data log with the Torque APP.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but the canned Street tune with the Atlas 40HP tune combo has been the best for my truck.

Good power, no smoke, great shifting...
