anyone ever had their SCT/tuner stolen?

I'm WAY past being able to do anything about it now; but how difficult would it have been to track down the animal that stole/sold my xCal II?!
The car broke a few times in a row and I fell behind on payment a few years before I paid mine off, and when I went back for it all my stuff was there but the SCT I'd bought six months before (yeah, priorities)... I thought about calling the company and seeing if anyone had tried to wipe my VIN off it, but probably out of embarrassment I never did...

That little little bastard a fun toy, the cord never loosened up and lost the bends from being wrapped up!

You can have them unlocked with software so all they would've needed to do is unlock it and your VIN would be erased.

I kept mine under the back seat in my Mustang so I'd always have it with me, but also so that nobody would see it.

I keep mine in my car all the time just in case I have a CEL pop up and I wanna see what's happening.
