SCT Tuner question

I was looking at buying the basic SCT handheld tuner from AM, but had a couple questions. My brother and I own almost identical cars. His is a 2013 v6 base coupe-red, mine is a 2014 v6 base coupe-black. We want to do similar performance upgrades, so could we share just one SCT tuner? I see no reason to buy two of them if we are doing identical performance stuff. The only difference might be the rear end gearing. Thanks for any help.

I'll add this question as well: How long after getting your car did you wait to buy this? I JUST bought a '14 and already want to start modding it, but I figured I would wait until around 5k to start doing stuff. That way if any early issues arise I can get them fixed with no warranty issues.

SCT Tuner question

Sadly no. You cannot do this. Each tuner will be married to that cars computer. Each computer has it's own personal ID.

Damn, that sucks. So once you buy one you can't resell it down the road? Kind of a waste in that respect. Oh well.

SCT Tuner question

Yes you can still resale it. Either you or the seller has to send the tuner to SCT for they can unlock/unmarry the tuner. It's a fee of $150. But it's best just to keep the tuner and get the tunes for life deal.

Yeah, i'll probably keep it because of that. I'll add this question as well: How long after getting your car did you wait to buy this? I JUST bought a '14 and already want to start modding it, but I figured I would wait until around 5k to start doing stuff. That way if any early issues arise I can get them fixed with no warranty issues.

I suggest wait till at least your factory warranty Is up or close at least just in case something pops up. I waited till 24k then I tuned mine. I've had warranty work done before but it was my suspension and they had no need to fool with my computer. Didn't tell them they never asked. Lol.

if u try and use the tuner and your brother didn't put his back to stock before u use it he may lose the stock tune as well ....if your ecu numbers match you could use it I believe... but he will have to return his to stock setting before you load a tune

What went wrong with your suspension? I was looking at some rear lca's, sway bar and panhard bar early on.
