Will this work??

I recently found a SCTX3 off a mustang on craiglist for 150. I know this is a good price but would this work on a 06 6.0? What would have to be done to make it work and how much would it cost? Thanks for the help guys.

Re: Will this work??

any SCT X3 (P/N: 3000) or the SCT X3 SF3 (P/N: 3015) will work on any 2000+ Ford.

They also work on 1996-2000 Fords, but the compatability is spotty since that is the time frame when OBD-II was just getting rolling.


when you buy it, plug it into your truck. Turn the key to on. Go to the info and check to see if he is selling you a locked tuner.

you have to send it back to SCT and get it unlocked, I think it costs 75 or 150.... not sure, but i would just buy one from a vendor and get custom tunes all in one shot.

Locked = worthless until you send back to SCT and pay them $150 to unlock.

it's a cheaper way to get a programmer...but it takes a long time to turn around and use.

I suggest you do like said above. Just buy the programmer directly from your tuner unless that SCT you found locally is legit and unlocked
