SCT Tuner?

Ive recently discovered this tuner. I read up on it a bit. tried to find a site that has all these free tunes they talk about. i cant find nothing. This product seems better than running to a dyno shop everytime you get something done to your car. Just curious on what your thoughts are on his product and if its worth the $400+ for it

You will mostly hear positive feedback from it. The folks that have used it tend to really enjoy the results.

i know when you buy the flasher it comes with a free tune. But I've never heard of unlimited free tunes from a website. I know TurboTom does unlimited free updates to your ecu as long as you stay n/a.

I thought I seen it on the site somewhere, So you have to buy off turboTom and he'll update my tunes for free as i progress my build?

Last time I checked they didn't, I think they wanted 35 bucks or something like that but I can't be for sure since it was a while ago, and don't even mention having cams as that jacked the price up a whole lot. Wish it didn't though cause I been needing a retune myself . I know a local member of ours has Tom's tune and is on version 6 of it as well and he is raving on how good it is compared to the cookie cutter version he got by just buying the SCT Xcal with it's tune on it.

Yup! I've got his tune and I'm on version 6 I believe? He'll even do separate 87 and 92 octane tunes!
