Here's how basic email-tune handheld tuning works and hopefully it'll clear up your confusion;
1. An aftermarket tuning company (i.e. Bama, Steeda, AED, MPT, Lund, etc.) creates a custom tune tailored to your own vehicle and handheld tuner (i.e. SCT) (which cannot be used on any other vehicle or handheld tuner).
2. They send you the tune(s) via email. You download the tune to your computer, plug in your handheld tuner, and transfer the tune file(s) from your computer to the handheld tuner via the handheld's supplied software.
3. Next, you plug in your handheld tuner into your vehicle and from there you can load the custom tune you received from Bama, Steeda, AED, MPT, Lund, etc. or go back to stock.
If you purchase a used SCT handheld tuner you'll have to purchase an aftermarket tune as well (i.e. Bama and Steeda's are $150). The SCT only loads custom tunes and does other services such as data logging etc..
