I assumed it was as simple as getting the tuner and then flash your ecu and drive away. Just trying to get this clear for me......[idea]

Posted via FF MobileYou need to download the latest firmware for your tuner. Go to the Sct site, find the latest firmware for your device . Download it to your device and then your ready to ready to load Tom's custom tune to your Sct then install it in the car.

there are a few updates to choose from. mustang diesel obviously not needed. there are two that are just update and the other says down load if it does not recognise your car.


Thanks

Posted via FF Mobile Look on the back of your tuner and I think you should have some number that has something like a 3013. Look for the firmware update using the number on the back of your device.
..I'm not at home right now or I could be of better assstance.

No worries. Cant complain to someone who is helping. I will get it. I have it down loaded to the computer just not sure even after following the How To Install Device Drivers that i have propperly downloaded it to the SCT. I tried it in the car and all I get is does not support.

Your device should be relatively new (XP serial number.)

On our site, after you type in your serial number, in RED TEXT the following instructions tell you exactly what you need to do:

SCT will no longer be providing the firmware files as a downloadable link from our website. In order to update to this firmware and any future firmware, please download and install the latest SCT SF3 Power Flash Ford Programmer Device Update Software below. Within this program, select to Automatically Check for Updates while connected to the internet and your device will be updated automatically. The tune revision update will take approximately 5 minutes for completion.

Download that device update software that is listed there, install and it will install the drivers you need. Once finished, plug in your device through usb then select to automatically check for updates. Let that finish then you can choose the load custom tune button to load the custom tune file to your device. After that you are done and can flash your vehicle with that file.
