Unless otherwise requested, we keep your rev limiter to 200-300 rpm over stock on many vehicles. One example would be 2007-2012 GT500s which have a factory limiter of 6,250rpm. We have found we can safely raise that to 6,500 to properly configured cars and take advantage of a broad powerband. We do not recommend revving the engine past that point. For 2013-14 GT500s we maintain the factory limit due to the 7,000 overrev feature. We recommend you contact your personal calibrator via our Customer Support tab on the website for further information or questions.

One of the oddities of a SCT X4 is the default screen and manner in which you load the file. gas tax in washington state When you first plug it into your OBDII port, you MAY be prompted to update the device.

To get started data logging open the Live Link program and click “I want to data log a vehicle” and follow the prompts (validate all parameters). electricity drinking game To start datalogging turn the key on, with laptop and tuner connected, hit the green button in Live Link (upper left hand corner), start the car without turning the key back off, and let it log for 30-60 seconds at idle(longer if the engine is cold).

If you run the car on a dyno make the pull in 4th gear(11-16 MT82 cars need dyno’d in 5th) starting at 1000rpm. Do not send more than two logs or repeats of the same thing. If the vehicle is boosted make sure the A/F does not go above 12.5-13.0 for more than a second while at WOT.

The "Computer Code" or "Catch Code" identifys the program that is in your vehicle’s computer. When we custom program an SCT Tuner for your vehicle the code is usually required. This code is 4 letters and numbers long, an example would be "ABC1". There are no dashes before or after the computer code, it is not a part number or calibration code.

On 2004 and older vehicles the code can be found on a small white sticker on the passenger side door jamb or door. If this sticker is worn off you will need to look on the computer itself. electricity vs gasoline On Mustangs the computer can be found behind the passenger side kick panel. On trucks the computer can be found going through the firewall on the passenger side, often the code is visible from underneath the dash. On large cars the computer can be found under the drivers side dash.

It is possible to find the computer code by plugging a flash tuner into the OBD2 port. When you read the code out through the OBD2 port it is called the strategy, using this method the code is 7 letters and numbers long. It can be even longer on some vehicles and include a part number, we can use that part number if there is no strategy code present.
