2014 1le sctx4 no tune?

Hey guys, just got my x4 home and out of the box. Hooked it up, uploaded the stock file... Went to see what tuning options it has but only has a tune for the L99 automatic. I'm sure this is when everyone will chime in with the options of remote tuning which I'm prepared to do... I just figured like my itune before it, the sct would have come with a canned tune for the ls3 or is there some kind of issue at play?

Did you upload the latest firmware from SCT before connecting the devise to your car? You not suppose to take it out of the box and connect to your car. AND your suppose to return the stock tune to your car before uploading the latest firmware. Did you download the SCT program to your computer first? I have the sctx4 model 7416 and it does have a tune for either Manual or Automatic Camaros

It's discussed all over different threads, that just because you return it to stock, it's still flagged that it's been tuned outside of GM, and they will know.

Yuuuup. GM can tell it was flashed with a tune..so if it's a catastrophic failure your out of luck...as new as your car is...I'd wait...I waited and had a huge warranty repair that was covered...Many choose to void the warranty time it leaves the showroom floor...I'm glad I didnt...its a roll of the dice...

Faulty afm lifters that tapped loudly at startup, which require tearing the top half off the engine to replace. Was in a loaner for 9 days for the repair. I'm lucky in that the mechanic that did the repair was an ace mechanic. Forty thousand miles later she still hasn't leaked a drop of fluid,runs like a top. To look at it you cant tell it ever had major surgery.

Ok. I wonder how many LS3 issues people have had and needed warranty work.

SCT is just now supporting some 2014 models with Canned Tunes.

I however am tuning 2015s for some time now.

I can provide you with a great tune for your car and can take in to account any and all aftermarket mods.

Once I have tuned your car, and you purchase your parts from me, tuning for those parts will be FREE.

Hope this Helps
Ted.
