Question Acquired Used SCT Bama Tuner: Help!

So my brother-in-law totaled his 2008 GT and gave me his used tuner. He bought it new from American Muscle just a few months ago. He gave me his Bama Member number and I have the code from the back of the tuner as well.

The only thing he didn't give me is the data cable to download codes from my PC and to load any firmware updates, so I know I'll need that.

He claimed that he loaded his stock tune back on the car before they towed it away.

Questions:
- Where can I get the data cable?
- Is his 2008 tuner compatible with my 2011 V6?
- How can I determine if it has been un-married?

I'm hoping AM might chime in here to help me out with some of this. I'm hoping I'd be able to get the new data cable and order some tunes from Bama or Steeda on this for my V6.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Probably the quickest and best way to get an answer here is to call Bama -- 1 888 226 9764

I have every intention on calling them, but I wanted to bring this up here first. I felt that other members might tell me a few things I need to ask about before I called so I know what I'm talking about.

Thanks.

Have a USB printer cable? That's all it is.

If it is the SCT XCal2 which most of the 2005-10 Mustangs used, it won't work on the 2011. You need the 3 series because the tune files are a lot bigger.

And yes, the cable is just a standard printer cable.

RickAKATed10,

Do you know which SCT hand held device it is? If it has the Bama face plate on it, then you're good to go. All Bama face plated SCT tuners are X3's or SF3's and work with any year OBDII Mustang. Only SCT X2's don't work on 11+ Mustangs.

If you're looking to get enrolled into our Free Tunes for Life program. You can purchase an enrollment for $150, which will get you 3 custom tunes right off the bat. Then anytime you upgrade to knew bolt-on mods, you can just contact Bama for free new tune updates.

As for the computer cable- everyone's correct in that you can simply use a printer cable from a house-hold printer. Or you can go to an office depot to pick a new one up.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions!
