Sct 4 bank tuner

I was wondering if anyone has used this to help tune their 5.0. I always thought there wasn't really much to tune on a pushrod 5.0 compared to the modular motors. But if so, what is all there to setup and how well did it work for you or someone you may know who used it.

Thanks.

The computer can handle almost anything you throw at it short of forced induction. A tune will help you find hidden hp though. If you are planning to tune, make sure that you are done modding for a while. Otherwise, any changes will require a new tune.

Do you know exactly what you can change? I'm new to this tuning part of the build. Plus the car ha a kenne bell on it so I guess if it can't help tune this then I need to look further.

Thanks again

I'm here to help with anything i have a clue about man! A tune on these cars basically help everything you have in the motor work together. It tells the computer exactly what is doing what. It can also help with anything you have deleted (example: egr) What all do you have in the car right now?

The sct chip is fine but in your case I would get a dyno tune done instead of using a canned tune. Your best solution would be to get an Anderson PMS tuner. it allows you to adjust and tune anything, and is more tunable than a chip.

Ya I was looking into the Pms or a quarter horse. Seems like this would be the best bet seens how we could get closer to perfect then just a re flash could.

Just money is low and the car has been siting in the garage ATM needing rear calipers lol. But she surges bad at idle and the rpm hangs after a rev up or when your just driving and the let off. Rpms finally calm down and back to a slight surge.

You definitely don't need to cheap out and buy the chip.

+1 on the dyno tune. You have alot of potential in that motor that a chip cant take advantage of. Get it on a dyno and then hang on tight! Thats gonna be one sick ride man!

Ya. Makes seance that the chip would be more of a bolt-ons application like you would buy for a modular but ya dyno for something going past that with forced induction.. Duh lol.

I hope one day it will be a nice ride. Hell I just want it to smart up and be happy till I park it lol HP tune can come next haha. Miss driving it

I bought the SCT bank chip from AM and still ended up needing a custom dyno tune

How does that work if you already have a chip? Did they just reprogram your chip or not use it at all? Just curious
