LilDee I got it from CFM. The only tuner from fswerks offered was the 500 dollar livewire tunerand I can't afford that lol. Well, ill shop around for a tuner once I'm. A little more financially stable.

DEMENTED SVTF Why didn't u get it done at fswerks? They are right down the street man. U don't have too send logs or wait for emails. U got it straight from sct?

LilDee I checked and a tech from SCT checked when I called and everything was up to date. But:

Firmware Version 1.2.129
Tune Version 1.7.0

What firmware revision is currently on your device?

1turbofocus A custom tune is always best , I never send out the scal with the pre loaded tunes always custom tuning and with FREE updates

LilDee **UPDATE**

I was able to connect the device to an older computer with a Windows XP operating system and turns out there are TWO drivers that are supposed to be installed. My laptop (which runs Windows 7) didn't have one. I called SCT and they told me that it somehow "glitched" and didn't install one of the drivers. I reinstalled everything and now it works. For those who have trouble connecting the device to their computer, the names of the drivers are SCT Driver V10.11 (or whatever the latest version is I assume) and X3PDEVICE (or whatever device you have, I assume). I got the car tuned with the pre-loaded strategy tune, but I'm not liking it, contemplating a custom tune. Thanks for the input everyone!

S0C0nFused Well. Don't know. there is a coating on electrical connectors (usually) to prevent corrosion while there on the shelf. It is very light and is supposed to scrape off on insertion. Sometimes it doesn't quite scrape off well enough. That is what happened to me. Little alcohol cleans it right off though.

LilDee Dang...thanks for the replies. I don't if I should try again because it usually fails the first time trying to bring it back to stock and what if I can't get it back to stock another time? Is it the car or the device?

S0C0nFused I had a similar problem when I 1st got my xcal2. You might try this. Wet a qtip with isopropol(sp?) alcohol and gently clean the contacts on your tuner. Just a little bit to get any protectant off the contacts. Don't go nuts. A small eraser also works. Luck!
