I need opinions please!

Post by scstanger on Sun Mar 06, 2011 12:59 pm

Ok gang it's tuner time. My car doesn't have many upgrades to the engine yet so I'm going to buy a tuner for now to get the mixtures right and turn off the CEL. After the supercharger is purchased and installed then I'll have it dyno tuned. For now a can tune will work. My only question is which tuner should I get? SCT, Diablo or Delta Force? They are all comparably priced and seem to have the same features. Input please as I'm buying one on Wednesday. Thanks.

i know when the michigan chapter was looking into a dynotune they used a SCT tuner and the price of it was included into your tune, so already having the right tuner may reduce the cost of the dyno tune

SCT seems to be the most used in my area and the one that was used on my car. Not sure if the others are worse or better. Ask the shop that will install the supercharger as they more than likely prefer one and use that brand! You can use the same unit when you do the supercharger tune.

Yeah I plan on using the same tuner then but the charger purchase could be a while off yet. So for now I have the Roush CAI, BBK 70mm throttle body and plenum, Magnaflow X w/ Cats and Roush Shorty Mufflers. Not a lot of mods. Just wanting opinions on tuners right now.

SCT is the one I would go with, it holds several different tunes, you can keep the stock tune and the new tune then also keep the supercharger tune later.

I had diablosport then went to SCT because i can run the PRP tuning software right out of the box. its been great so far. i would recommend finding a great tuner in your area and talk with them. if they use diablosport go that route if SCT then go there. just my .02

you lucky SOB's have Amazon nearby too, i have heard nothing but good things from them especially if you can make it to their shop
