Jeff FRC can act like a dick on TCG. Itís accepted.

Your estrogen levels are a bit elevated with the car breaking, which the Build / Run / Break cycle is commonly accepted by modified vehicle owners.

Get it fixed, come back strong, run a good number and accept something else will break at some point down the road.

You have to go back to stock to update the sct, if you donít it will brick your car, flash the stock tune on update and load the pbd tune then flash it on

I unfortunately lost my stock tune. Shoemaker told me it's not a problem and that he should be able to force load a factory tune by trying to load his base file. I was confused by what he was telling me, but I'm sure hes dont it before so I didnt question him...

Have you used your sct before, it’s a pain in the ass to load stuff on and not very intuitive, you have to use the load custom tune file tab rather than the transfer file to device one, if it asks to update decline the update

Ok now that the stock file wrote, I go to program the custom base tune from PBD and it says please wait forever and then asks to hookup to wifi and then after awhile it gives me a general error 11000 code. On the updater it shows that the PBD tune is on the device.

These SCT's are the biggest piles of dogshit I've ever used. I'm about ready to burn the damn thing

Yeah turn your headlights and intercooler pump off when flashing it kills the battery quick, if you hook it up to a charger it should let you flash it

SCT is rough for sure. HP was way easier, quicker to load tunes, data logger actually works great, and the device/gauge is useful.

But most tuners are using SCT.


And @1quick the hero once again.

I've never had this much trouble trying to load a damn tune on any vehicle before and this will definitely be my last SCT device. So for me the correct sequence would have been to plug the handheld into car and marry it, then transfer PBD tune from computer to handheld, then try to load PBD tune to car which will then force a stock file to write, then plug handheld back into computer to update, and finally upload PBD tune from handheld to car. What a fucking process...

Thanks again to 1quick for getting me started. My hero...lol

I’ve become fluent in sct fuckery I’m going on 6 years now only using them since most coyote tuners prefer sct, I think most have started to do a lot of hp tuners now as well
