Re: tuners

sct is the most popular and can do a great job, but the tune thats on it is what matters most. Contact americanmuscle (bama chips) and local tuners etc and go with what you think will work best for you.

In order to get the BEST you need to have a dyno session and tweek the tune as needed.

I have the same sct sf3/x3 no issues except the speed limiter didn't work on the race tune, have not tried it on any other tune but put it on one day just to see if it worked and it failed me...but the performance of the tuner itself is great.

I have zero issues with it now. 2002vertgt: I had the same thing go wrong with my launch rev limiter I called bama and told them what was happening and they told me that one of the tunes settings wasn't right. He looked at my tune and changed it while I was on the phone. He immediately emailed me the updated tune and I loaded it on the tuner now it works great! Im launching at 3500 rpm.

I believe he was talking about the rev limiter function. It works like a 2 step launch controller. And it only works in the race tune I have mine set 3500 rpm but web I first got the tuner I loaded the race tune and pushed the gas and sure enough it would only rev up to 3500 but the problem I had was that it would do it while in gear and driving. But like I said.. Called bama and they fixed it.

Yes as in the speed governor, I wanted to see of it worked. And I also had the same problem with the rev limit neutral....nothing like driving down the road and having your **** start jumping like something major is wrong...pulled over immediately and fixed that
