Is the SCT worth it?

I'm thinking of getting the SCT flash programmer. But I though I'd ask people if they liked it first! And how much power did it increases your focus I have a 2001 ZX3 would it made a noticeable increase in Horse Power?

You'll need to be sure and buy it through a vendor who will tune it for your specific car.

On a stock engine you could see a 5-7 whp gain while improving drivability and mileage.

I think it should be the first mod done to any car and not just because I sell them

As you mod your engine things change , the ECU has no idea what you have done or that you have done nything , you could add a SVT header that will add 15HP to the wheels and loose 3 because of the air fuel not being right , I have seen this happen

I am the only tuner that adds FREE tune updates as you add more NA mods ,

Not only performance but you will have better idle , better mid range and driveability , if you have a ATX it changes the shift psi and rpm

The xcal also checks and clears CEL , datalogs so we can fine tune the tune to your car this is what makes it a custom tune , I take over you laptop and set up all the datalogging and do the first dtalog like I was sitting in the car with you

Many reasons other then HP gains to have a SCT xcal with a custom tune and many more when you get the tuning services from me
