ok, I installed it back on today, I might make a run in the morn-- CHOP
would I have to buy a NEW tuner, or could I have someone tune MY car off theres, just wondering--- CHOP
Just wondering, I can buy a used tuner right, or have someone with a tuner tune my car, correct?
A tuner often times has a pre-loaded or custom tune loaded on it; either a tune to go with associated part(s), or to bring the car to a determined power level. The issue I can see with the purchase of a used tuner is the tune may not be meant to optimize the part(s) involved, or may be leaving some power on the table.
I would also assume you could use someone else's tuner on your car but, again, the tune loaded in the tuner would not be custom tailored for your specific application.
yes, that I know, sorry I didnt stipulate that, I have CAI and exhaust, so if I know someone with a 3.7 and the same mods I could flip him $50 and tune mine HA-- CHOP
Since the mods are the same, I don't see why the tuner would not work on your car. Go for it.
The tuner may not work also if the tuner is married to another car. It will be locked, meaning you would not be able to use it. They are very tricky!
This is the thing I was worried about, so How would I know, Imean if someone lived close to me with the same mods and a tuner I would gladly flip him $50 to do the tune, IDK like I said, just wondering--- CHOP
From what I have read some of the tuners used have to put original car back to stock to unmarried it. Then I have heard you have to pay to have the tuner unlocked. Only way to find out is to hook it up.
When you use a tuner such as the SCT handheld you are physically removing the factory programming from the vehicle and replacing it with new software that has been loaded with your "tune"
Once this process is complete you have a hand held tuner that is storing your factory programming. You can not use this tuner on another vehicle unless you re install the factory programming to the first vehicle. There are licensing restrictions that will prevent you from using this device on more than once vehicle at a time. Even as a shop that does a lot of custom tuning we can't unlock these programers to work on more than one vehicle at a time, only the manufacture can unlock these handhelds once they have been loaded.
THX Man, this is the info I was looking for-- CHOP
I'm going to leave it off until I can buy a tuner, I can tell a difference with it on, just doesn't perform right-- CHOP
sorry for being redundant here but just to clarify; would you recommend to others not to get just a CAI and only buy the combos with tuner?
Thats what I would reccomend!
