SCT X4 tuner. Will it work?

I recently found an SCT X4 (7015) tuner for $80 on Craigslist. I have a 2002 GT with various mods to my exhaust, drivetrain and intake. The owner of the tuner says it is married to his car that he no longer owns anymore and says to get it unmarried it costs $100. Will this tuner work with my car and is it worth the price/hassle of getting it unmarried?

Thanks everyone!

Do you plan on purchasing some tunes from a retailer? I thought an unlock was $150, which puts you in the $230 range with the purchase of the tuner. Then generally $150 for an emailed tune which will put you at $380...only $20 more and you have a brand new one from a retailer...

Doesn't seem like a good deal to me.

With a forum discount of 6% you would only be spending $376 on a brand new tuner from AM with 3 tunes and free tunes for life. Brenspeed does tunes as well and are known to be very good.

I am planing on buying this then going to get my car dyno tuned. Not planing on getting tunes emailed to me. I want actually dyno tunes and maps that I can use.

It might be worth it then. You will spend the same amount on the dyno either way. This way you won't have to buy a tuner through the shop.
