Okay so I have an SCT X-Calibrator 2 which I purchased from Evolution Performance back in the day with a JLT Cold Air intake. Whenever I tune my car, it tells me I only have so many tunes remaining. What happens when I finally run out? I haven't taken my car in for the airbag recall yet because I do not want to burn through two tunes to get it fixed.

1st the airbag recall has no effect on the tune,just had mine done.

2nd,,,the tunes are programed into the xcal,they arent going anywhere unless you delete them. You can go back and forth to stock all day long with no problem.

You can order a new tune or tunes to replace the originals,usually the SCT holds 2 and the stock tune total 3. But you can switch then as often as you like,,they never run out till you delete them

He maybe referring to how many times the sct can be married to a vehicle. Thats the only thing I can think of that the sct will tell you how many times it can be done. I think it can be done 5 times.

The SCT Power Flash VIN locks to a single vehicle. You cannot use the device to tune a new or different vehicle, until you have returned the original vehicle back to stock, which will unlock the device. You can only change vehicles 5 times before the unit is permantly locked. You can change tunes as many times on your car as you want. Just don't use it on someone else's car.

tornthorn and smokinbones got it right, its the number of times it can be married, just mine seems to be unusually low of a number even though I have only ever used it on my car.

i think ive read on here that even if you hit the 5 lives, you can mail it to sct and they can unlock it for like 150.00. like was stated earlier, you can change tunes till your hearts content in your car. :)
