    I have a tune on mine that was done for me via HP. Does anyone know if I can save that tune on my SCT hand-held tuner? If not, how can can it be saved so I can just reload it back on the car? There are 3 tunes saved on the SCT that I'd like to play with but don't want to lose the one that I have.

    On my hand-held it gives me the option to save 3 tunes. I want to save those 3 but the current tune on the car is different. Jesse did the 3 tunes that are on the SCT hand-held and the guy who does tuning for RPM transmission, named Phil, did the HP tune that is on it now. Jyst need to figure out how to save the one that is on the car.

    I am afraid the tune on the car will have to be saved by someone with HP Tuner and WELL worth saving if it was done by Dr. Phil!! I have heard from other forums that he is a wizard with tunes.

    Yes! He had to put the tune back on for me when I was playing with the hand-held and accidently replaced his tune. The tune he did makes the car run like a dream! The only one I want from the SCT is a race tune for when i finally take it to the track. I just don't want to have to keep taking my car to him to have him put it back on...

    Hey guys, noob question incoming: I plan on staying mostly stock (did a muffler delete); is taking it to a reputable shop for a tune worth the money?

    A good tune is worth the money. Finding a good tune is difficult.

    Was quoted $500 for a tune; the shop has never done an STSV but has tuned and worked on 6 CTSV's. Only place in town that does it. I'd have to drive to DFW otherwise. Thoughts?

    Was thinking that as well. It's a 5 1/2 hour drive; maybe the proper tune will be worth the extra gas money and overnight hotel stay....

    Don't forget the Adult Beverages!!

    It is worth it to take it somewhere they have at least tuned a few.
