PWR rad in the mail
SCT X4 and tunning software ordered and on its way
Hood paid for waiting on pickup
LSD order on monday, thinking about grabbing a spare trans. Mine has seen some abuse and grinding of the gears.

Just a FYI, Im not sure if sct has fixed the firmware problem yet or not but the X4 wont work on a svt... I went thru a bunch of BS and headaches trying to get it to work... Maybe they fixed the problem but they are slower than snails at resolving problems. So if it fails to download the stock tune every time you know why and send that shit back. Livewire is a sure bet. Anyways, just a fyi... Hopefully they have firmware that works for the svt now but I doubt it.

I know with the DS you had to pull 2 fuses for it to work. I assume even that doesn't fix the issue with SCT?

Wish it was that easy, you always have to pull the 2 fuses under the dash and I even tried pulling a couple in the engine bay. The reason for that being the sct devices are very touchy and any power drain at all can make the tune fail. The problem is with the actual firmware on the device, the X4 firmware is not compatable with the svt. They are suposedly working on it but who knows how close they are to a firmware update that fixes the problem. If you call sct they will be very aware of the situation. I gave them a bunch of shit and they told me there are tons of other svt owners that got dicked because they got a X4 and it wont work. So until the firmware is updated and fixed all svt owners are SOL. X3 still works but a livewire is gonna work flawlessly every time, but it also costs $200 more... I started a thread warning svt owners not to get a X4 until the firmware issue is resolved. You can check it out here- http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=412346
