So does that mean that I need to buy something else? I was under the impression that I could tweak it without having to have a preloaded tune on the device? What I am seeing is that I might have to buy something like that.

I think you can tweak without an actual tune on there.........maybe. If you can it would on only be a couple of things I would think.

Can't even do that, for some reason it's not letting me into anything to do with the car. It sees it and knows what it is and can pull things like VIN and such but that's it

I was asking Travis questions about it and he was able to change a few things. But that does not mean he has a tune. It didn't come with a preloaded tune from SCT? Is the device married to your car? So now you spent how much money on it and don't have a tune? It's 150 bucks to get a tune from Tom that comes with free updates, I forget how much FSwerks would charge. It's 420 total to get a flasher from Tom with a tune and 399 to get one from FSwerks if I remember right. Hopefully getting a tune won't push you over that price range.

It's not married to the car and didn't come with any kind of preloaded tune. It even says on the website that it doesn't come with a tune. But I don't know why I can't tweak anything at all. It's weird.

Has far has I know you can only tweak the custom tune on there. When I tweak my tune I have to pull it off the car onto the device, make my changes, then upload it back onto the car's ECU. I have to do this every time. You should really look into getting a tune from someone. I can't believe it didn't come with a crappy pre loaded tune like Raymond's did.
