SCT Xcal2

I have a 2005 F250 6.0. Right now it is stock with the exception of 4" dual stacks from Grand Rock. I'm going to be buying a tuner sometime this month. From what I have read everywhere, the SCT Xcal2 seems to be the one to go with. I have a few of questions about it though. Is it safe to drive around daily with the Street Tune? Does it blow smoke? If something does happen to the motor, can the dealership detect it if I put it back to stock? Thanks.

Sure, the Street program is an excellent daily driver. It makes great power and yields better mileage than stock. The Street is our most popular daily driver program.

I run Eric's Extreme Street tune as my daily driver. It is a blast to drive. Better throttle response. No turbo lag. Keith

Hello,

All our tunes are safe. The beauty of the Xcal2 is that it is a custom tuner and you decide what you feel most comfortable with. We will tweak it based on your specs. If you ever want to change a tune, get reflashed, add mods, etc., all you have to do is ask. We offer unlmited tuning when you purchase the Xcal2 from us.

Can the dealership detect that you had a programmer? There is a way to tell but it is not something that Ford trains their techs in. The technicians would have to have discovered how to do it themselves by playing with the software that Ford provides. We always recommend that when you go in for service that you ask to speak to the tech and set-up a rapport. It will help you if you ever have any problem with your truck. Always remember to test the waters first before you offer any information.

Thanks,
Vivian

The dictionary defines it as:

RELATION; especially : relation marked by harmony, conformity, accord, or affinity

My definition is getting along, liking each other : Somtimes talking to people makes all the difference in the world.

Thanks,
Vivian

I drive with Innovatives Steet Tune all the time, unless i'm towing then I reprogram to my tow tune. It is an excellent daily driver tune and IF you can keep your foot out of it your mileage is good too. Not much smoke to speak of. Every once in awhile if I let up on the throttle and then back in hard it will belch a little cloud then it clears up and you'd better not be looking behind you anymore cuz everything up front is comin fast.

'04 F250 FX4, CC, SB, Zoodad, Innovative SCT XCal2, 4" MBRP, Airaid intake, 4" Superlift front with 5.5" Fabtech springs in back with stock 2" block delete, 18" predators with 35" Nitto's, Isspro gauges overhead. '00 27' Rinker Captiva Millinium, 454MPI Captains Call exhaust. '06 '33 Tahoe Transport. '03 Polaris Predator 500, K&N, WB pipe, '08 Polaris Outlaw 525 S.
