What if I have a custom tune? Is that locked to being custom or how does this work on the basic SCT tuners?

If its an available choice on the menu you should be able to change it. I change revs per mile to get my speedo and Odo exact to the lock on GPS speed on my GPS designed to measure speed accurately. (not all do in a rapid dynamic environment)

Simple way to see if its not locked is to see if you can change it.

Yep, and chose either of those and when you go to put in your next tune see the make adjustments prompt come up. You make the adjustments just before you install the tune. To make an adjustment, put the car to stock, then put the same tune back in and say yes to make adjustments prompt. See you SCT owners manual.

Bama never gave me a disk or anything like many have. I just got a plate, cable and tuner and a cool box. Thanks for this info. You seem to be on a lot of posts educating the novice.

Yea, I never got a disk or anything either , but found the SCT site when I needed to upgrade my tuner before I could use it. Same sctflash.com website will have a download for the software you need on your PC to add more custom tunes, backup your stock tunes and others to your computers hard drive, and allow you to data log.

I do find Torque android app to be easiest to data log with however for $5 and $20 or less for a Bluetooth ODBII dongle. As for Novice that was me when I first got my mustang on new school cars, I only did old school (70s) before. I am just sharing what I learned to get on the ropes, as provided to me by many great folks.
