    Lund auto lope tune

    I was one of the first to have the AED auto lope tune and I loved it. I rocked it until I put my car back to stock when attempting to sell it. I sold the tuner and not the car LOL. Now I am pining for another lope tune. Has anyone tried the Lund or a non AED auto lope tune?

    2015 bucket list test drive

    So I went to the mall today to do some shopping and they had this cool 2015 test drive deal set up. I walked over and they had a course setup where you could drive an ecoboost down a straight and around a 180 then a short slalom. After you got done driving a guy from Ford took you around in a GT...

    sct x4 using tunes previously used on x3

    I sold my x3 awhile back because I was going to sell the car. Never happened so I still have a bunch of tunes on my laptop. Any idea if tunes that I used with my x3 will work with the x4? I would assume so but figured I would ask.

    select shift retrofit

    I was at the dealer getting an oil change today and I had them take a look at my shifter handle as the silver paint is bubbling up a bit. Then while walking the lot I was looking at the 2014s and their different shifters with the select shift. Has anyone retrofitted the select shift into an...

    exhaust clamp bolt size

    does anyone happen to know the bolt size for the stock exhaust clamps? I snapped mine and the only replacement I had was short and isn't really doing a great job. Id rather not have to pull the bolt out and then run to the store with it. Thanks guys

    Long tubes with DIY H pipe??

    I was reinstalling my offroad H and sizing up the car for a potential future header install. Looking at the routing of the H pipe I don't see why a hacked up OR-H would not work. Has anyone tried this? If so what brand of headers?

    SCT KAM reset

    I had to send my SCT in for service and they got it all setup with the latest and greatest updates. When I uploaded my tune the other day I noticed it had another menu for KAM reset which I am pretty sure I never noticed before and is a welcome addition to someone like me who flip flops...

    side mirror wiring help

    My mirror got knocked clean off and in the process it yanked the harness connector off the wires. If someone could pop the little cover off where the mirror control stick is and tell me the position of the wires I would appreciate it. My car is a 2011 in case they changed the wires. Here is...

    strategy and ecu codes

    I recently had some issues with my SCT tuner where they had to wipe my handheld. Now I am having issues loading tunes into my handheld. I suspect it may have changed my strategy somehow. I have no idea what my original strategy was but the code on the ECU is UHB2 and the strategy shown on the...

    Another SCT story of whoa

    I know there is several posts on the subject but I think having multiple posts will help bring these issues to the fore front. I have had my SCT handheld for a few years now. I originally had it for my 2011 manual and kept it when I got my 2011 auto. I have had dozens of tunes without issue...

    FRPP K springs VS. Eibach Sportlines

    I installed a set of Sportlines on my 2011 today and I wanted to do a comparo between them and the FRPP K springs that I had on my old 2011. As far as drop goes they look pretty similar. I only put about 60 easy miles on the Eibach so they may drop a little more. The ride is where the...

    Coil on plug replacement discussion

    Instead of muddying up a vendors thread I figured I would start a discussion. IMO if the gains are to believed they are probably a decent deal for the money. We have somewhat high compression and big HP so perhaps they do help. However my experience with aftermarket coils is limited to the...
