Go to sctflash.com. Click on tech support. Go to center of page. Where it says device updates. Click. Pick the model of tuner you have. Then to the right click on tab and pick Device update software. May want to update FW and tune revisions also. Hope that helps. Just did it this afternoon myself

Oh. Sorry You need a USB cord. From pc to device. On a sf3 it takes an a to b USB cord. Find em at Wally world. Plug into pc first then into device. Let pc load drivers and so on and so forth. Start the SCT update program. Click on transfer file. Screen pops up. Browse to saved file on hard drive. That's the email attachment your tune writer sent you. Think it saves in the downloads folder by default. Double click file. Wait. Status bar at bottom of update software will show 100% when it's done. Click close. Unplug SCT. That's about it.

Once your tunes arrive:
When you get your tunes you will need to go here:

SCT Automotive Performance Products

4th tab on the top is "tech support" click that

when that opens click "device updates and download"

1) select the x3 Ford

2) device update software

on the next page download the "X3 Enhanced Updater Software"

follow on screen directions.

when the tune arrives its best to make a new folder on your desktop named "tunes" save your new tune to that folder. (to create a new folder on your desktop, simply right click any blank area on the desktop and scroll to NEW>folder left click. Then re-name it by right clicking on the “new folder”)Once this is done, connect the X3 to your computer and open the X3LW updater, once opened click "load custom tune file" once this opens you will then browse for your file and select by double clicking an the upload should show up and you are able to name the tune whatever you like
