Made up my mind I'll be buying a tuner from American Muscle. It's down to the base SCT handheld unit or the iTsx unit for iPad / iPhone. This question is for those with experience with the iTsx, is it worth the extra $100 for the performance tests, and gauge readouts? Thanks, Dave

it's really an awesome device, but you might run into issues that require the device to be sent back to SCT.

Awesome device. I was seriously considering it, but I was a little worried about the Bluetooth maybe crapping out right in the middle of flashing your ECU.

happened once, all it took 20 minute for SCT tech to send a recovery file.

We had to send two devices to SCT, and they never failed again.

I heard about the ability to log using iPad, but never tried it. I use an X3 with PC to log.
Yup, me too, w/current data logging. It would be cool to do it straight to the iPad, as they advertise (I think). It is a cool device for sure.:good:

You guys should check out the new Diablosport intune tuner, it holds unlimited custom tunes , Mac compatible , full color touch screen,live data logging, the unit can tune multiple cars, and fits in your pocket , it's a bit smaller than an I phone!!

Damn, really? I'll have to check that out too. I'm not really biased toward any one brand. Just as long as there are some peeps out the that use the devices.

I'm not biased either, but this tuner seems like the real deal , it is fairly new so I'm not sure on how much feed back is out there, from what I've heard it's the ultimate hand held for NA cars!!! Just throwing out a different option!! Almost everyone I know uses sct but me and a few friends use Diablosport and never had a issue with them!! :)

I had a bad experience with Diablo sport, I tried putting a tune in my car at a friends house and it deleted everything even the stock tune. So I was stranded there after that I ordered the SCT and have had a great experience with it.

With the old handhelds that's what they did they were only to be used on your car only , the only thing you could do with the old ones was clear trouble codes on other vehicle's

Yup, on the 2011+ stangs. I think the updates have got it under control, for the most part.

I'm glad to hear that they got the issue fixed , I guess these tuners are like any electronic they can all have problems from time to time

Hi folks! What up AZ! Has anyone ever fried a PCM before? How many time can you flash before it happens? I shut everything down before I flash.

Spiney,

Both the SF3 and the iTSX are great devices. To be honest, I don't think you can go wrong. I'm confident you'll be very happy with whatever device you go with. They're both going to do tune your car, clear CEL's, Data log, Hold custom tunes etc...

However like you listed the iTSX has the option to view gauges and do some performance testing through your Apple/Android. IMO this is a very cool option however all the bells and whistles aren't for everyone. If you plan on just tuning your vehicle and putting the tuner in your glove box until the next time you tune in it, then the SF3 may be the best for you!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!
