Re: sct tunes

I have an X-Cal 3 SCT tuner for my 03 cobra and use the livelink 4.1 or so version of the software to datalog. I have their upload software for uploading tunes to the tuner from my laptop as well.

The tunes were custom done by someone I know that is good with 03/04 cobras so he did three tunes for me. I had to data log, dyno, and get them updated a couple times to fine tune it but all is good.

For V6 stangs VMPtuning has a great reputation.

Re: sct tunes

Yah VMP does an excellent job tuning v6's. They are an SCT vendor and will make custom tunes for you.

Re: sct tunes

I'm lucky to have Excessive Motorsport within driving distance to me. They hooked me up with the X-Cal3 and dyno tune files for 93 oct and 87 oct. I go back in a couple of weeks for them to install 3:73 gears and update the files since intake spacer and divorced duals put on by me. Both files are great. The 87 octane file is extremely fuel friendly. I have space for one more file. I might try VMP, just dont like the impersonal part of them. It would be nice to speak to a human about all the things I've touched on the car and done thats not typical. SCT tuner + mods to engine gave me 21HP
