The point behind the x-cal2 is that you can tune the car yourself without having to pay to have it dyno'd...

The X-Cal2 is a great product. It's for the enthusist that wants the most from his car, but doesn't want to pay alot for it. It's a very easy to use device if you understand some car lingo. Hit me up when you're interested in buying one. I sell them with free shipping.

A dyno tune is only needed if you have a lot of modifications to the car.

Re: Do i need a dynotune

some places like send you the sct x-cal 2 with the program already on it and all you have to do is put it no your car's obd II and some places just send you the flasher with the options on it to tune it yourself. a dyno tune no matter what is always going to be better than a flasher tune because all flasher tunes are for a wide range of cars with the same mods that you have but you have to remember that every car is different. that is where a dyno is better because it is taking what you car is really performing like and using that info to tune it.

gear ratio, tire size, cam setting, things like that.

Re: Do i need a dynotune

There are some new products out from SCT these days, so let me clarify some things.

There are two X-Calibrator 2s out, the 9400 custom programmed, and the 9415 pre-programmed.

The 9415 is loaded with generic tunes from SCT. The 9400 is custom programmed by the SCT dealer that you buy it from.

You can guess which is better.

In the past any time you bought an X-Cal2 the SCT dealer HAD TO put some kind of program on it, be it a generic tune from SCT or a one of their specialty tunes (like VMP does). Now its possible for a dealer to just pull a pre-programmed device off their shelf and ship it out the door. In some cases this can be fine, but if you have a problem specific to your car will the dealer know how to fix it if they don't actually tune? Everything we do at VMP is custom programmed based on our extensive tuning experience, we are not just parts resellers, but actual tuners who know the ins and outs of the Ford computer systems.

We send all our X2s out loaded with 3 custom programs, with user adjustable options enabled. The options allow you to play with timing, a/f, shift points, rev limits, gear ratio, tire size, etc. But you are not required to adjust anything, its just an option. We tend to have some of the lowest prices out there and will beat anyone else's price, with the huge volume of X2s that we move this is possible (500+ per yr).
