SVTsteele Ok good to know because I've read some horror stories about the x3 lol
08-19-2013 08:12 AM
1turbofocus I dont think so

08-18-2013 11:49 PM
SVTsteele So then for someone just wanting either one for the tune would one be better than the other? (X3 vs live wire)

1turbofocus Your more like a 97% it will work and 3% you will have some kind of issue , if your in the 3% you wont me out 400.00 because SCT has taken care of every issue that has come up and there all tuned and running

08-17-2013 08:47 PM
SVTsteele Ok, and are the problems with tuning the svt with the x3 you sell cured and figured out now or is it still a 50/50 chance it won't work at all and be out $400?

SVTF 03 Working out a basic custom tune with Tom now. I'll do some live data logging with him soon. Curious to see what his tune does over the included Livewire tune. I had the Diablo Predator before and I wasn't impressed with the device. But I did like the tune from Tom. I think for the few of us that are looking to be the Tom's of the world, we would benefit from the Pro Racer software and a sct tuner. But it's nice to know there are guys like Tom to help us out as well. Just curious Tom....what is a conservative number that you've seen achieved on a NA SVTF? I'm really motivated to see where I can take it. I know FI is the best bang for the buck, but I always love a challenge. Tom, do you have a collection of information or specs on your car that you wouldn't mind sharing? Thanks.

1turbofocus Yes a PRP will make you a good tune , unless you have been tuning these cars for some time it will take you about 8-12 Hrs on the dyno and about 3-5 Hrs off the dyno starting from scratch if you havent tuned a bunch of these cars

If you are use to tuning the SVT 1-3 Hrs on the dyno and 1-2 off the dyno

Unless you own a dyno its cheaper to pay me 150.00 for a custom tune and FREE updates

SVTF 03 I wanted to but fell apon too good of a deal to pass up. I know your the guy to goto about tuning these cars and your tune deals are great. I should be able to use the pro racer software to make a tune correct?
