SVT Predator problem

Hi, my tuning guy asked me to send him stock (backup) tune from my Predator so he can create some basic tune for me to be able to drive my newly PC SVT to his dyno. I tried to do export stock tune but I got an error message saying that it doesn't exists. I remember when I reflashed my svt with Diablo tune it saved it (at least there was a message on Predator screen) so my question is....is this normal ? If not anyone has stock tune that can export from it ? (2002 SVT)

Thx a lot

Tomas

tunes

the predator should have came with a file/tune for that vehicle. then you could have driven to him and had him tweak that tune for the mods you have on the car. if he's starting from your stock tune something does not sound right. i know you need a base tune etc... but the predator i believe has data logging so he can see what the car is doing and adjust your paramaters from there. you might want to contact tom at www.focus-power.com and ask him for some help. he is also on this site, under the forums section he has his own section, drop him an e-mail or PM good luck

Hopefully Tom will chime in on this one.
Even though the Predator stores a factory backup on the unit when you flash a custom tune,
it's not something you can take off the unit and work with for a new tune.
As texassvt mentioned, your tuner will need a base tune to start with.

BTW, double posting is frowned upon.
Your other thread (no replies) is merged with this one.
Thanks.
