the SCT tuner is a flash tuner that will plug in into your diag. port under dash.
very good programmer for a 6.0L powerstroke.

hotshot4819... The first step is to talk to people and dealer to see who you want to get tunes from. Once you find a dealer then they will have some info that they want and you will need to know what tunes you want.

As far as install you just plug into the port below your dash and press a few buttons. It is really simple and a few minutes later you are done and can unplug and start driving.

Let us know if we can help in any way.

The SCT plugs to the OBD2 port under the dash. It will store the factory(stock) program and 3 other programs. You simply plug the unit in under the dash, follow the on screen prompts to load the programs. Once you load the programs, you store the Xcal2 in a safe place.

Your dealer will need the strategy from your truck to build your programs. Send us an email from the inquiry link off of our website and I can email you instructions on how to go about downloading the software.

I got my Xcal 2 from Eric. He is very helpful, and I swear he never sleeps. There is 1 warning. Keep a light foot on the loud pedal, or you will be replacing tires a lot. You will need to get the SCT first to read the strategy of your truck. Email that to the tuner and they will email your tunes to load into the SCT.

Eric, I'm really dissatisified with my tunes. I needed to replace 2 tires this AM. I'm sending you the bill, because it's your fault for all of this new found power. : Just Kidding, totally satisified with the tunes. Truck runs like a scalded dog.
