Sct performance or street

I finally got my sct sf3 today and my question is which tune is higher street or performance? And when I first programed my truck it took about 5 mins. But I switched it from street to performance and i just selected performance and it put a check mark by it does that mean it's what it's tuned to?

If you are switching tunes it will have to upload them. The first tune takes longer because it has to get your stock file. I'm not sure which runs more power, I say use neither and go custom!

Re: Sct performance or street

If it is the "canned" tune on the sf3, according to sct you will be ok.... key words..."according to sct". If you go out and beat the dog snot out of it every day, probably ain't gonna last to long.. imo.... if you drive it normal, like its not there, you will be fine. My wife drove mine around for almost a year in the performance tune cause thats were we got the best mileage, and we never had a problem..
