I was always led to believe that the SCT’s were the way to go. I have no experience with any other brands, and I didn’t even buy my own SCT, the place I bought my truck threw and X4 in when I bought it. I only run the canned tunes, most often the trans only tune. I also like the way the interface is set up.

I also heard a lot of good things about SCT so I went with the X4. It's still fairly new to me but so far it's worked great. I don't use it for a monitor. Still using my ScanGauge for now but that might change.

Still to be seen. I literally have been running it on a custom tune for only a few days.

You purchase tunes from them and upload to the scanner, I assume?

I've noticed an uptick in MPG, but i can't isolate it to the tuner. I did a bunch of maintenance all at once after I got it and the MPG improved 3 or 4 MPG from 15 mpg to 18.5-19 mpg.

My main goal is to have a tune that provides max mpg, but switch to power when I need it. This is why I asked. None the less, whatever you did worked.

Is there a reason you run the trans only tune?
