SCT Pro Racer

What does the SCT pro Racer get you= compared to the regular SCT flasher 3000? A lot or a little advantage? Just need dyno time & wide band?

It gives you the ability to tune your own ride with out having to get a "tune" from someone else. That's about the only difference that I know of off the top of my head. It's great if you know what your doing not so if you don't.

Oh and you could alter tunes provided they are a certain format or file type. A lot of tuners send there tunes out in a certain file format so you can not alter it but I think they all do that now but I'm not 100% sure.

The Pro Racer is made so you can do all your tuning , you get the xcal , tuning software for your ecu code only

I offer FREE tune updates so in most cases going it isnt worth buying the PRP

But lets say you find an Xcal for dirt cheap, $50 lets say. Weather it's locked or unlocked you probably won't be able to do anything with it for your car.
But if you buy PRP (which I've found for $350) you can unlock the Xcal and make it work with your car.
There is a learning curve with PRP. But there are also conceivable situations where it can be just as, if not more, cost effective as dealing with Tom (who can service 95% of peoples needs).

I went with PRP because Tome does not like Ethanol and that was the fuel I wanted to run. And even though I didn't buy anything from him he's been kind enough to help me along the way. Stand up guy in my book, even tough we but heads now and again.
