if going to be doing dyno tuning with it, get one that the tuner will use. if just going to be tweaking a little on a canned tune, then i would go with diablo or sct.

I've been told countless times SCT is the way to go, I'm getting my car Dyno next spring and they use SCT tunners to store the tunes.

Another vote for the SCT. Not that the diablosport is not nice, it is, it just seems more tuners in my area use SCT.

SCT worked well on my 2v.


speaking of...quick question Im gonna sneak in if you dont mind...

The GT was totalled and I have a locked x-cal 3 thats I would like to use for my Mach. The 2v is useless and computerless, can I unlock my tuner? How?

I have a Sniper and an SCT X3

I don't believe the SCT has the option to turn off the rear O2 sensors. Other than that though, I can't see a reason why not to get either. Fewer tuners use Sniper though.

send it to sct so they can unlock it for like $150 or so.

I like SCT. I run the XCAL 3 but a livewire or there newest one would be sweet. especially since I get almost half off thru SCT from my school ha.

But if you get your SCT from AM and get one of there tunes it does work. It showed an extra 5 horse and I think it was 17 ft lbs. which isnt that much but its not bad.

and SCT's advantage tuning software isnt horrible to use. I just recently dyno tuned my car with it and it wasnt all that bad. not as nice as AEM but not bad

I've heard many times that the livewire is junk.

Other SCT stuff is fine but I have read tons of posts where people said they really didnt like it.

I dont have any real experience with it though so do your own research.... Just pointing out what I've read.

SCT Tuner 3 is a quality hand held but you cannot replace a tune on a dyno burned to SCT 3 chip!!! If you can afford taking the car to a tuner to dyno from idle to WOT you will maximize the most out of it..

when you get a custom tune do you have to have a handheld or can they just do a custom tune?

Delta Force (formerly Sniper) dealers can do a flash only tune , all other brands require a handheld or chip
:sorry that blows:confused:
