Xcal-3 Tuner from Tom, NEED HELP PLEASE

Hello,

I bought a tuner from Tom...
I hooked it up to the obd-ii imput. The Xcal 3 comes on, gives me all the options and stuff... I try to install the tune from tom, or the custom tune or even the preset SCT tune... It says Turn key on w/ engine off, i hit select, then it says turn key off... i do that. then it comes up with an error...
It took me 2 months to receive my tuner and it doesnt even work. I even hooked it up to my 04' cobra and the same prob happend.

Anyone have any suggestions, its unmarried.. Tom said he put a tune on it for my 2006 Focus ST 2.3 5spd w/ Borla catback, and steeda intake and short shifter.

any help would be appreciated...
Also.. why cant i post in the classifieds, i have stuff for sale from my SVT focus that i totalled.

thanks alot,

-Bret

thanks for the information!

:)

ps: the tuner didnt come with any instructions... what exactly do I select when i plug it in? would it be the custom tune or the strategy tune?

i have no clue since it didnt provide a booklet like the diablosport's do.

It would be custom tune and it should have a name or something but select custom tune and see what it says and go from there.
