Probably best to call Sct or Bama.
^This is correct. If you have an SCT device and you get a new tuner, the device will save your current tune as Stock and then load whatever tune you choose. If you're okay with not having a stock file, then this is the your best option! However, if you want a stock file you could take the car to Ford and have them flash your car back to stock before you tune the car.
If you have a Diablosport device, the process becomes a little more difficult. You'll have to work with them directly to get a stock file for your car and they can help you troubleshoot. Just let me know if I can be of any assistance! I hope this helps.
