Also any feedback on custom tunes with this. The local shop here tunes with SCT, I have a DSP, but they dont have the program to get into the fine tuning of it. Like to get some feedback before I switch. Have alot of mods, and hope to get it tuned in the local area. Right now I have a stage 3 ECU, can the SCT be used with that, or would it be better to go back to the Stock ECU? Thanks

If you are going to go the SCT route i would put your stock ecu back in as you are basically wiping out whats on the pcm for a tune on the SCT. Makes sense to get some money back and sell the stage 3 pcm.

I have the SCT from AGP and have been pretty sucessfully tuning my car. I just tell them what i need done to my map and Kevin @ AGP emails them back to me right away.

no I have the DSP. Not the trinity. I am just looking into this. The local shop here can tune SCT. I hate to drive 4 hours to get tunes, but if it is worth it I might.
The shop here said the DSP are burning up PCM's. I dont know, I havent heard about that.

The DSP isn't burning up the PCM, something else is. Either tool in the wrong hands can damage the PCM or more.

Not sure if it was in conjunction with the DSP, but a week after I loaded my DSP I got a CEL code for the Crankshaft Sensor. Replaced those and the CEL was still on, finally realized my PCM had died on me and needed a new one. Needless to say I sold my DSP.

Could have been a coincidence, could have been DSP. Not saying which, but just throwing where some people got that idea from. I read the same thing afterwards from several forms.

DSP is a great piece of equipment in its own right.

ya i agree. I have no idea. That is just what they told me. But this is a local shop, I dont know how many SRT's they have worked on. So I am keeping my thoughts to myself. I just dont know.

I would vote for coincidence. DSP and SCT are both great tuning tools! DSP having the capability to datalog is what makes it so nice. But you can datalog with a DSP and still tune with SCT.

Well there is datalogging software, it just has to use the DSP as a pass through device. Just find a cheap used DSP and it won't hurt the wallet as bad.
