SCT Tuner

Quick question, I know that you can only use any of these hand held tuners specifically for one vehicle. Let's say I were to buy one from craigslist or something would I be able to call up the company and would they set it up to be able to be used for my car?
p.s I apologize if this question has been asked previously or if it sounds dumb

Just buy a new one, if you buy an unmarried tuner, you're gonna pay I think around $150 to get the tuner remarried to your vehicle. It's best start by buying your tuning device and get the tunes loaded onto the device by whoever creates your tunes. And some companies give you free tunes when you buy the tuner from them.

True, I was just asking because one of my buddy's friends wants to sell me the tuner for $200

So you would end up spending $350, not counting custom tunes. You can get the x3 for $375 and the x4 for $400 brand new.

That's not true. If it's unmarried he can then use it on any vehicle. He would just need to have a tune emailed to him.

Oops! Did not know that, sorry for the misinformation. I thought the tuner had to be married to one specific vehicle in order to be used.

If the previous owner removed the tune from their vehicle, then the device is "unmarried" I BELIEVE. The problem is they may have used to flash their car, then are trying to sell it while the tune is still on their car... & the tuner is still "married" to their car.

By that do you mean manual 6 speed or auto 6 speed? If so its manual 6 speed.

SCT Tuner

For manual I would go with AED or Lund racing. But there are many different tuners to choose from.

No it's not. Where are you guys getting your information from?

If the car was returned to stock the SCT device is now free to use on a different car. You cannot use that tune the tuner was holding but rather need an email tune sent to you.

Buy the tuner for 200 hit up aed or Lund for a tune as mentioned. They're $250. So for $450 your tuned. I have both AED and lunds tunes. Both are good. For an auto I prefer the shift logic Shaun at aed uses. Just my preference on that though.
