Default For those looking for Stage 1...another option.

If you are looking for Stage 1 for your car, there is another option for you for a limited time. One of the guys on (SebringLX) has developed a 93 octane tune for use with the SCT XCal2 device. His tune uses the Stage 1 code as a baseline so you autostick guys get the benefit of the improved shift programming which is only available in Stage 1 and in SebringLX's tune. Josh then modifies the boost schedule as well as alters the fuel and spark tables to allow you to have improved power over and above that of Stage 1.

The price is $175 for the XCal2 and the tune. Killer deal no matter how you look at it.

You don't need a Stage 1 PCM to use this, though it does work with that PCM.

For the '03 GT guys, he recommends the larger injectors that '04 and up cars already have but he can do a tune with rescaled injector parameters for the stock '03 injectors.

Head over to the "Spill Your Guts" section of the forum and look for the "Limited Time SCT tuning offer" thread. 8 pages of info and growing.

Mine will be delivered today. I don't make anything off of telling you guys about this. It's just a great deal, especially for us autostick guys who don't want to up our power with stiffer wastegate actuators that create part throttle overboost etc...

How does the tool already have the tranny mode in it ? I thought that was a learn mode you had to perform on your own ?

Update, the 2003 cars and some early 2004 cars have the NGC1 PCM as opposed to the NGC3 controller in the 03 Stage 1 and later 04 and up cars. This PCM apparently doesn't take too well to tuning. SCT is working on this supposedly, but for now, the 03 folks might want to move to a Stage 1 PCM as a better platform for the SCT tunes. I am currently looking to get back into Stage 1 on my 03 GT.
