IF I Sell My SVTF, Is My SCT2 Worth Anything?

Lately I've been itching for a new ride and have been considering the Cobalt SS. No real plans as of yet though.

What I want to know is if I put my car back to stock, can anyone else use my SCT2 w/ Hypnotic's Tune, or should I just let it go with the car?

I would assume it could be reprogrammed for someone else's car, maybe by Tom?

TIA

Make sure you put the stock tune back onto the car first as the tuner is useless as it's still "locked" to your vehicle. You could always keep it and get a tune for your SS once you get it and use your tuner to flash it.

We do not currently support the cobalt SS.

So the tuner itself is not compatible? That's what I was referring to. He couldn't get a tune from someone else and use his Predator to flash his next car, even if it's a C-SS or such?

He doesn't have a predator, he has an X2 which is an SCT product. SCT does not support the SS.

Predator, I don't know...I don't work there.

Well then ... with the fact.

I recommend he return the car to stock and sell the tuner to someone who is looking for one. I know there are plenty.

Good luck with your new car, HamrHead.

Thanks Guys - That's what I needed to know. I fully intend to put the stock tune back in the car - IF I trade it.



As I'm sure many, if not all of you would agree, I would love to trade it for a new RS, but Ford won't give us that. The other problem is I won't buy foreign until the time comes that I have no choice - So it's Ford, GM, or Chrysler for me, which really limits my choices on something comparable to my SVTF.

I drove the SRT Caliber. Speedy? Yep. But otherwise I just don't like the car. What's left? A new 'regular' Focus (boring), the Cobalt SS, or just keep what I have. I still enjoy my SVT and haven't made any plans to unload it just yet, I was just curious about the SCT2 - just in case I make a quick decision.

Thanks again.
