To load and remove tunes from the device, you will need to install SCT's Extreme Tune software. It will allow you to load and delete tunes from your vehicle as well as adjust some parameters on that tune (depending on what the tuner left open to adjust): Tire Size for speedo, idle rpms, adjust spark and AF ratio, etc.

To get your car to datalog, you use the LiveLink software and you will have to tell it what parameters to log. You can then save that file to load up later, so you don't have to go through all the check boxes again. Once you have the file set up, you hook everything up, start the car and fire up livelink. Then just press the button on the top to record and it should do its thing. Takes a little playing around but you will get the hang of it quickly. If you would like a log file to use, you can PM me and I will put some stuff up on my server for you to download.

Not sure if the ExtremeTune software is available from SCT anymore. If not I can give you that too, I believe I might have that installer file here at the house.

Another thing you have to watch is that your firmware is compatible with the versions of the software that you are using. You should be able to get that info from SCT's site.
