That blows. I have never had any issues with my SCT X4. I am using PHP custom tunes tho, not sure if they are different. You can’t buy a tuner here in California anymore. So I’m going to go give mine a hug.

Nobody will ship any performance item into the state as of 2014 IIRC. Some $30,000 fine for every item shipped is how I was told. I couldn’t even get a 4”down pipe shipped in. So it goes to Reno first lol.

It's the same size as my CTS2 was. I bought the GTX so I could monitor and not have to buy a separate unit like the CTS2 again. It's been good to me, aside from the LCD screen falling out that I fixed.

I just replaced a turd mini max with this unit, man what a difference. Before reading the instructions I plugged it in to my laptop, when I seen it wanted to install drivers I immediately unplugged it. No pc required remember! Straight to my rig and whammo, there’s my tyrant tune, beautiful.

I bought my GTX for my 2015 F350 in April, I kept getting a reoccurring check engine light, all within 2 weeks of install, contacted SCT, got a story about my computer and plugging it into the device, used a different PC and then they said I had to send it back for them to download review and return. Well I got it back and it was a brand new GTX, hooked it all back up, and there was no tunes to be able to load. Contacted them they had me try to load a stock tune that they sent, it did load, but still no other tunes, so they had me give them all sorts of number from the device, and they were going to talk to engineering. Well after another month going by they tell me it’s on there “to do list”. Contacted them again and they said there having issues with the software and they need to rewrite it. Well it August and they told me today that they really don’t have an answer as to when it’s gonna be done, asked to talk to a supervisor, and of course they were all in meetings and would call me back. So 4 months with an expensive monitor and still no answers! Anyone else having any issues like this with there SCT GTX on a 2015 6.7L F350 ?

That's because if it's a new tuner you need to contact who wrote your tunes, have them rewrite them for that GTX serial number and upload them to the cloud, then you should be good to go.

The tunes are included from SCT, with the tuner. A Street tune, Tow tune, and a Performance tune.

Thought you were running custom tunes. I would advise to not running the SCT tunes on your truck.

SCT tunes are known to be a little aggressive and could actually damage components. Gear Head does not do any tuning for the 6.7. I wish they did because I had them on both my 6.0's and loved them. Popular around here is Tyrant, I have them and love them, Innovative Diesel does them. There are more but can't recall at the moment.
