I was not sure if they did or not, when I checked CFM's site last night they updated it to say that the X4 will not work with the svt. When I bought mine a little over a week ago it said that the X4 will work on the svt. Just kinda weird that they just changed it, I figured that SCT might have sent out a message to dealers...

Thanks for posting this up. I'm in the process of getting all my mods on and then Tom's tune. I was thinking of getting the Livewire anyway. Guess you helped me make up my mind.

Its most likely not going to work with the st170 either... You have to use X3 or livewire. Its the firmware thats the problem...

stick to the basics the latest and greatest isn't always the latest and greatest...........what version did it come with thats why tom says not to update the software unless he says so because it can cause these types of issues.

I have somewhat of an update. The last time I talked to Josh and Dave at SCT, they said they got a donor SVT and are working to fix the issue with the X4 firmware. Dont quote me on this but Im pretty sure they are using one of the CFM guys SVTF. Tom was gonna contact William at CFM and see what was goin on but Im not sure if he's had the time... So long story short, SCT is working on fixing the firmware to work with the SVTF but who knows how long its going to take until a new firmware version is ready... I dont think its that high of a priority on SCT's list right now. I guess only time will tell... I'll post a update if I hear anything else.
