Congrats! My first day with a new tuner too! We are gonna wonder why we didn't do this way sooner.

If you got the SCT SF3 like I did ... and you may already know this, but you can download the SCT Device Updater software and drivers for Windows from the Tech Support section of their web site. This allows you to update the firmware and tune revisions (when needed) on the device, as well as back up your stock tune and also load new tunes into the device from your computer.

There didn't appear to be a way to back up the 3-custom Bama tunes from the device to the computer ... or at least I haven't found it yet. Someone point me in the right direction on this please if I'm missing something.

2008 GT , Candy Apple Red, Manual, Parchment Interior, Shaker 500.
Mods: JLT CAI with Bama 89P & 93R tunes.

lol this.

Just this last week I started paying attention to my gas mileage. It's a little bit ridiculous, I decided to try and only floor it every other time I take off but it's not going well.

I'm not very computer savvy, I didn't grow up with computers (39 years old) it took me a while to figure out how to down load the new tune when I got the JLT CAI (no fault of AM) they are the best! Once I figured it out it was simple! Someone with more computer experience would be childs play!
Don't worry about down loading/backing up your tunes as AM has them in their files, and as you mod they will change your file to match!
