2005 Mustang GT and SCT Tuner help...
 
Hey guys. I have an 05 Mustang GT and am thinking about running the SVT tuner on my car. I work at a dealership and a guy traded in an 07 Mustang GT that came with many upgrades along with the tuner. Can I hook this up to my car? Do I have to clear the other car first or clear the other one and then swap computers? The biggest difference is that mine is a 5 speed and the other one is an automatic.

The key is to ensure the tuner is unlocked. To do so you'll need to return the other car to the stock calibration. The tunes on there won't work but you can easily get some that will.

Good point... What are the mods on the other car?

BigRed247 07-14-2010 12:47 AM

Bolt ons except for the audio system. It came with the computer, larger wheels, and a muffler thats now on my car. The one that no one was exactly sure what it was earlier. No real work under the hood.

No cold air intake on the car?

BigRed247 07-14-2010 01:01 AM

Nope. None on the other car and if I end up using the tuner then I'll pick up a Steeda CAI for mine probably...

Just load the stock tune back to that car and you should be good to go with it on your car.

Agree... Other car should run fine on the OEM calibration.

2005 Mustang GT and SCT Tuner help...
 
Tunable Induction can help you...all the way.

The '07 GT SCT Tuner is locked and mated to that car and set to run with the original CAI it came with. To unlock you must hook up and reverse the tunes...load stock tune from SCT back into GT, and GT SCT tune back into the handheld.

Tunable Induction has the coolest flowing, largest MAF housing (95mm) available for '05-'09 GT's, at less $$. We use SCT tuners, so we can reprogram yours to match your TI '05 CAI, if not locked. www.tunableinduction.com

Stay away from metal CAIs, they heat soak "alot" and defeat the purpose of getting cooler air to your engine, and the MAF housing is less then 95mm, less air flow, less HP & mpg.

Ok. So after I set the other car to stock, should I go to like americanmuscle.com and purchase the 3 custom tunes?

That's BS. JLT has a composite one bigger than yours :hihi:

They are a good choice and so is Brenspeed.com. I think Brenspeed's package is $25 cheaper. You really don't need the three Octanes unless you are going to run all three. I opted for the $75 single tune from Brenspeed.

Tunable Induction CAI & SCT Tuners...

Yes, I stand corrected. JLT just came out with a carbon fiber 110mm maf housing @ $399. Designed for 350HP+ Mustangs. It will work on a stock set up but, stock TB opening is less the 110mm and only so much air will pass thru. If you want an ABS, 95mm CAI at only $199 check us out. Contact us anytime for your SCT questions and retunes. Thx

What would happen if I tried to see if I could put on a pre-loaded tune? All I've done so far was reset it and hook it up to my car to see if it read my VIN.
