I bought my SCT used, with tunes, here on the VTCoA. I unwrapped the UPS box, plugged it into the OBDII port, and went for a drive. I fail to see why someone woundn't do it that way.

I have to agree here. I bought mine used, tuned for the mods I had and it has worked great. I saved $200 doing it this way!

if you have the same or nearly the same mods, it's OK... but the odds aren't that great in finding that...

either way, i wouldn't do it...

but that's why this post is here... to let people figure that out for themselves...

Very true. If you get lucky u can find the perfect USED tuner. I was fortunate to find one for same year, mods and elevation I was at. Have had it about a year and no issues yet. Saved .$200. But VERY RARE to find indeed

We will still direct people to this thread for a personal guarantee by those that have bought used SCT's and can vouch that they will work without error or issue
