Bama sct custom tune

Ok so I ordered it new tunes from bama for the 1st time ever and got them emailed to me... I try to upload it to my tuner but for some reason the software won't download to my Mac book, does anybody know if this software is designed to work with windows only or is it me doing something wrong

I think it is windows based. Did u update the tuner? Sorry, only done this once myself. I think there is a thread on here where somebody had the same issue.

It's not that hard. U can do it. I just renamed the email tunes after I saved them to my desktop so I would know I pulled in the right ones when I uploaded them in my tuner.

Lol. Well, anything after that can be fixed without calling BAMA. Save the files, update the tuner, upload the new files (with changed name, I did like 93A so I would know it was the new one uploaded) and poof! U got it. It's one of those things that made me feel like, I'm doin something wrong. After I got it done, it wasnt too bad. It's something that I don't think is done enough to get comfortable with it.

Yes. Put the stock tune back in ur car before u do anything. Why? Because once u update and install the new tunes, the first thing your tuner will do is relearn your stock tune. Poof, if u wanna go back to stock ever, it's in ur tuner.

---------- Post added at 07:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:54 PM ----------

Have u already updated and installed the new tunes to the tuner?

If that file is blank now because of the update bro, it makes a mess. It might not be but search for a thread on here where this happened. Just call them early, it won't hurt to make sure.

Quick hijack,

does anyone know when a new SCT tuner will be released. It seems the handheld is getting outdated and I don't trust bluetooth enough to warrant the tsx one.
