Dang sct

Well I finally got my used XCAL2 in the mail today. Supposed to have 4 unlocks on it and of course be unlocked from the prior vehicle. I open it up and to my surprise it only has 2 unlocks left and the Status is Program Failed..........dang. I spoke to SCT and they said it needs to come back to them. I did not ask them about clearing all of the other unlocks (so it is fresh again) but will tomorrow. They said at least $75 to get it usable. The seller did paypal me the $75 to cover it but now I am at the mercy of SCT. Has anyone sent theirs off to get it cleared? If so how long did it take to get it back? I only paid $160 shipped plus I just got a $75 credit so hopefully I will still make out but what a mess.

On a side not I got the kitty gutted and removed the muffler. This was a great mod...def spools faster and has a great sound but with the windows up you can barely tell a difference .

Rant over......

Anyone know if tuners can unlock the xcal for a fee? After looking on SCT's site I found this...but the stats do not match what mine says .....Program Failed

FOR THE X2 9400 AND THE SF 9415:

* Power up the device by plugging in to either a vehicle's OBDII port or a computer's USB port. (usb cable not included)
* Once powered up, scroll all the way down to device info.
* Press select, this will display firmware version and serial number.
* Press select again, and this will display the Tuner Status.
* NOTE: If it does not take you to the Tuner Status Window, and instead kicks you back to the Device Info Screen, Your Firmware is Old and will Need to be Updated to check the status. There is an FAQ section for this. Status will either be: Stat=Stock, Stat=Aftermarket, or Stat=Unused.

*This is the breakdown of what each one means:*
* Stat=Stock - Your tuner is half locked, but fixable. Go the the tech support page, select the Ford Xcalibrator 2 in the first drop down, select Device Update Software in the second drop down and hit Search. Download Liveload 3 by clicking the "Click Here to Download" next to it. Install this application, once installed open it up, plug in the X2. The program asks the X2 to be on the main menu. Program Vehicle is the main menu of the X2s. Press the unlock button within the liveload application. This will change the status to Unused and the tuner will then be ready to tune a new vehicle.

* Stat=Aftermarket - The vehicle is VIN locked, you need to either return the vehicle it is currently locked to back to stock, or you will need to call Tech Support and Get a Return Authorization, send it the Device and pay an Unlocking Fee.

* Stat=Unused - Your tuner is not locked, go tune.

when I did the exhaust on my F 150 I just cut the openings so a pice of 3 inch exhaust pipe wold fit inside and cut teeth on one end and drilled a hole on the other end to put a bar through and just clamped the cat in a bench vice and cut a hole through and left the pipe in it and cut the ends smoth and welded the cat and pipe togeather so that during inspection they couldnt tell they even taped on it with a small hammer and couldnt tell that it wasnt working right
