Talking Ordered my SCT x4 with Steeda Lifetime Tunes!

Ordered my SCT X4/Steeda!

How big of a difference in acceleration/throttle response should I be expecting?

I tried adding the x4 to the cart and applied the discount code and it never dropped to $320. Any idea why?

Got mine last week. 87 street and 91 performance. I really love how it "woke" up, especially the throttle response.

So have you noticed better throttle response below to 3k rpm? That's where I'm least satisfied with performance at stock. Is yours an auto?

WAY better throttle response. Yes, I have an auto. I am now able to spin the tires from a standstill, but I don't plan on doing this much as I don't want to have to replace the tires too soon.

I ordered my SCT X4 on a Monday and received it the very next Saturday. I am very pleased with Steeda.

How do they shifts feel? Do you find them a rougher/firmer?

Can't wait to get mine!

The shifts are a lot firmer than stock. You'll be very glad you got it. Now I just have to learn to keep my foot from getting too heavy. LOL.

Thank you for the feedback ... it is much appreciated.

Yes, unfortunately, the SCT unit is purchase directly through SCT so it is priced accordingly.

Let me know if I can help assist with anything ... you can reach me at tim@steeda.com.

Best Regards,

TJ

Looks like I'll have to wait a little longer (ordered on the 25th), some delays/backups with the tuning apparently but Rod@steeda has promised to overnight the tuner/tunes on Tuesday since they are closed for Labor day..the wait is killing me!

Now are there requirements as to what conditions have to be when loading the tune? (Engine has to be cold, car battery fully charged etc..) Out for delivery right now!

Nothing special, just make sure your battery is fully charged and turn off all unnecessary accessories like the radio, a/c, etc. It took a while to upload so I rolled down the windows the second time I swapped tunes.

I'd love to hear feedback too. I'm going back n forth between Steeda and Bama (have a v6 auto). It's my DD and like mentioned above, I'm also looking for low-end boost. Feels a bit laggy.

Good luck!

Battery charge is very important.

The car will be on for a period of time with the engine not running so it will draw from the battery without charging it. If the volts fall to low the tuner will power down and possibly down the car.

Best Regards,

TJ

I had just the tune installed. Had noted in the form that I had stock intake. Looks like it's throwing two codes saying I'm running rich. I previously had 91 Octane mixed with 87 in the tank when I installed the 87 tune could that be the culprit?

I cleared the code and will see if it comes back when I drive tomorrow.

No, that shouldn't be the problem. Steeda will take care of you that's for sure! Does Steeda offer free tunes for life if you already have a tuner? Say like how Bama is 150$ for free tunes for life?

Yes. Bought my Steeda tunes for life for only $105 (caught a great sale), but I believe they're $150 like Bama's.
