Question Buying New or Used SCT TSX?

I was planning on ordering a new SCT TSX with unlimited tuning this week for about $930 shipped and getting the ecomomy, looney and tow tune. Then I saw a used one on the classifieds like new for $750 shipped with innovative tow, x-street and x- race with 5 unlocks left (not quite sure what these means...) I plan on keep the truck for a few years. What would you recommend???? Kinda short on cash but could afford eaither.

2006 F-250 w/ 122,xxx miles.... Dieselsite Coolant Filter, Zodad, RCD Egr Delete, SCT Tsx- looney tune

Re: Buying New or Used SCT TSX?

if you can get it cheaper, go the cheaper route...

pick which tunes you want vivians or Erics...

if you go wth the used one with Erics tunes, you can always add vivians looney for 50 bucks if thats what you want.

Either way you go is a great move

Re: Buying New or Used SCT TSX?

you want to verify the strategy the tunes were written for are the same as your trucks
if not it could be the tunes are worthless to you
The best tunes for a 6.0 are Gearheads Matt IMO

You might not want the tsx. the bluetooth is very slow, and the battery can be a hassle. My favorite route is using either the SF3, or X3, and going with Edge CTS display. If you haven't used it, you can check it out here: Edge Products| Product -Wayne

I agree.

The TSX is a nice piece, but if you aren't into the wireless and gadgets...you may want to consider our X3 and Insight CTS combination. You'll have the best of both worlds, great tuning, and a nice customizable monitor. Feel free to call, PM, or email with any questions.
