First off, my bad experiences have nothing to do with "their new hardware" or whatever excuse that is. When you send a tuner back to someone to have updated and they blow smoke up your but for 3 months to do a simple update, that is sad. Now that SCT has left the large infrastructure and funding of Superchips and is starting over, I have even less confidence. As far as the modular depot article about the ATI procharged SCT vehicle, I think it speaks for itself. SCT is purposely misinforming consumers. They criticize scott beer from diablosport for not making a more accurate tune that advanced the timing more and renormalizing the tables. They also stated a very lean condition. Repeatedly Scott Beer would correct the SCT guys by stating the obvious; that your timing tables and A/F ratios will not be fully accurate when your MAF sensor is relocated and installed by the end user. How can Scott beer make custom timing tables for every possible MAF installation? He cant, which is why SCT made their tune on the dyno. Hello, but MAF position and location issues have been around from day one with the extremely sensitve s197 CAN system that needs reflashing for simple CAI kits. Of course any on-site custom dyno tune would be optimal, because the predator only includes a tune that would get the car to run. It is by no means optimized. Furthermore, SCT did not FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS and go through the process of adjusting the MAF curve as the end user would have done before creating their baseline runs with the lower output figures and lean a/F ratios. Also, renormalizing the timing talbes can seriously damage your motor and hurt performance if you MAF is not installed exactly the same as the test vechicle for the tune and is checked and corrected for accuracy. That is why Scott chose to not go there. It needs to be safe a reliable. Custom Dyno tunes have always been the optimal choice for the best performance but even since the 5.0's manufactures have provided FMU's and adjustable pressure regulators to tune the car to run well, just not perfect. But procharger cant supply a free dyno custom tune to everyone all over the country, its just not realistic. People want to drive their car now and dont want to have to trailer their car to a dyno shop to have it tuned, or pay for the dyno shop to install the part. They purposely gave themselves room to shine. If you look at other threads at modular depot you will see that SCT guys and Scott Beer talk as professional colleagues because they love these cars and want to innovate.
