Problems with SCT tuner

I was about to give up and sell the tuner, but then I remembered this forum probably has some suggestions.

I won a free tuner, with a free custom tune. I got the tune, used the SCT software to update the firmware and write the tune.

Then I get an error when I try to write it to the car.

What do you guys think? No, I haven't called SCT yet. I don't get home from work until late and I usually forget.

Did you send your vehicle's PCM code to your tuner? It looks like SCT doesn't currently have your PCM calibration codes supported, your tuner should send this information to SCT and get them to add your calibration and strategy codes so the programming can take.

I didn't do any datalogging, but I hooked it up to the car to get the PCM code. The guy writing the tune needed it.

It seemed it was only until recently he was able to write tunes for these cars, so maybe SCT's software hasn't been updated to reflect that

I did. He has never seen that error and had no solution.

If he can't figure out a simply tuning device, I'd really question his ability to figure out the ECU calibration better than OEM...

I guess there hasn't been many people tuning these yet.

I'm probably just going to sell the tuner.

Unless someone has a better contact to SCT than the 'Contact us' link

I can get your tune going for you , I charge 150.00 for a full custom tune and free tune updates as you add more NA mods if you already have the xcal , that also covers the DCT tuning if you have DCT
