Sct advantage 3

So does anybody tune with this software? A few months ago I bought the sct advantage 3 software and started looking at it last week. Trying to time for a bigger maf and I'm not sure where to start.

Yeah me too. Im not even trying to get crazy with it. I just want to be able to adjust it for new mods so its safe to run before a dyno.

I've got it. It's actually a lot at first but once you sit down and just read the descriptions of the parameters it's fairly simple. You will need a wide band AFR gauge also.

They also give you recommendations of why to set the parameters and everything. The biggest thing you'd doing while tuning is your spark timing and fuel. They give you the codes for larger injectors and maf and everything so it's pretty simple

Do you need other materials like text for the Ford mod engines? I'm wondering if each tuner company (or person tuning) has their own starting point for a given engine and then makes adjustments after seeing how the engine responds.

Yea it's the 4 digit code on your computer in the pass kick. They also give you the parameters for a good portion of ford cars so if you were to do a swap to say a 4v from a 2v....boom there's your baseline tune and you go from there

That's cool! Does it allow you to manage the tuner itself, like unlock or reset?

Yea basically you plug in your sct device and load up your tunes and it's easier to do then loading up the email tunes. It's pretty simple actually. You will start it up and see all the categories to mess with and it will throw you off and get to ya but just take your time and actually go through it and look cause about 90% of everything in it you don't touch at all

Can't remember. I believe it's like 400 or so and you have to sign a agreement

Yeah, I should look into getting that. I'd like to manage tuning my own ride.

A lot of the time if you take it to a dyno tuner that runs sct software they can actually load up their tune onto your of and you can adjust it how you like afterwards. Obviously that would ruin the value of their warranty but asking as you don't stray to far from what they have you'll be just fine

In mine there's specific folders where there's files that you can load that only adjusts the injectors and maf

Did you buy the book? If so did it help a lot?

---------- Post added at 10:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:14 PM ----------

Also where abouts are the folders where the maf and injector info is?

Nope I just did a lot of research about tuning and just looked at the descriptions on all the adjustable things in the program cause it will tell you what to set the stuff for the non major stuff. I can't remember exactly. I believe it was just in a accessories file I believe. Don't have the computer here with me. If your not really confident in your abilities I would buy the book. It's not a ton and probably can help more then it's worth.

I have a guy who tunes his wrx but he uses aem and is just trying to figure out the program. I'll look for an accessories folder though.
