Saw this on AM. At some point I will need a tuner, anyone use this and whats it like compared to the regular tuners? Is it worth it, because it looks sick.
Yup. Mine freezes every time and I have to pull the plug, then it takes about an hour and a half to reload the OS. Freaking pile of crap!Yeah just about everyone on here that has the Sct tuner has prolly had their car locked down at least once. When I upload the new firmware from Sct I talked with one of the guys and he said that was supposed to be fixed. FYI it takes A really freaking long time to update the handhelds. It took me 2hrs and 40min that's with a high speed connection.
Lol apple/android aren't tuning it... They're just uploading the tune, it's just using the phone as a hard drive in a ridiculously overpriced manner86custom said:If you want a tuner get a hand held IMO. I just don't trust apple or android for tuning a vehicle.
Do you think it would work for the 2010 though? I mean the 05-09 are more alike than the 11+ccorlet said:I bought one earlier this year. I still don't think you can use it on a 2012 GT 5.0. They keep saying watch for an update. Right.... Anyway, I got a handheld SCT with my Edelbrock S/C so I gave the Bluetooth job to a friend with a 2006 V6 and it works for him. Nice idea, just not ready for prime time. At any rate, the SCT guys are good guys.
Probably, sounds like they don't have the new Copperhead ECU figured out yet. I would ask around in the 05-09 GT forums since there are a lot more experts on the 4.6 3V and accompanying hardware in there.Do you think it would work for the 2010 though? I mean the 05-09 are more alike than the 11+
That sounds like a good idea to me.Napoleon85 said:Probably, sounds like they don't have the new Copperhead ECU figured out yet. I would ask around in the 05-09 GT forums since there are a lot more experts on the 4.6 3V and accompanying hardware in there.
That's a good point. Using the BT OBD dongle with Torque is one thing--it's just reading data. When the time comes, I'll probably stick with the hardwired option myself (it's cheaper, too).I almost bought this before settling on the typical SF3/X3 tuner. What stopped me was you use Bluetooth to communicate with the module plugged into your ODB2 port. If the comm has a brain fart - Kablammo!, now your PCM has a jumbled up tune. Decided to keep the umbilical cord connected to my method of tuneage transfer.
