HunterNorden,

SCT is the only one with the capabilities of unlocking a tuner. You can give them a call @ 407.774.2447 to find out more details of the process. I believe they charge $150 to unlock tuners.

Hope this still helps!

Shane

Unless u get it for like $20 it's probably not worth getting it.

$150 to unlock and then $150 for tunes (usually). So if you get it for $60 then you will pretty much break even with a brand new one.

Agreed ^^^

If the tuner is locked, you're better of buying a new one anyways. Then you're guaranteed a mechanically sound tuner and are enrolled into the Free Tunes for Life program if purchased with AM. That covers all of the costs you'll experience with the used tuner, except it's brand new.

They it'll be worth it but before u buy it call sct & verify the cost & that it can be unlocked because I believe they only have a certain # of unlocks!l but verify with sct!

If the OP were to pay SCT of unlock the tuner, I believe he would get the full 5 "unlocks" back. Even if it was on it's last one.

Regardless, I agree you should contact SCT first. Have them verify the process and price. Things like this are always subject to change, but I'm sure it hasn't. As I've helped a customer with an issue like this a few months ago.
