In the market to get an sctx3. I found a good deal on one. It is a locked 3015 unit and I know I have to have it unlocked and setup for my truck. But is there anything I have to do. I keep hearing about what 'Strategy" my truck has. I also see that there is alot of vendors on here who should I go with and what tunes do I need. My truck is a stock truck with a 4" str8 pipe and a S&B air system. I tow 8k once a month. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Once it is unlocked, plug it into the truck to get your strategy. Then just send your strategy to the tuner you choose along with the other info the tuner wants and they will send out the tunes. Plug it into the truck to download the tune, prepare for perma-grin! Gearhead has great tunes, along with many others. I have the Gearhead "3" pack which is the SRL, 8K tow and unlimited tow.

I believe it has to be sent to SCT to be unlocked, something like $150 to have it done too.

I put a couple calls and emails into innovative. I see there is a bunch of good writeups on KEM tuning also

:whs: so depending on how much you are getting the locked one, you might be able to buy a new one. Or a used unlocked one then buy custom tunes that's what I did I had about $225 in mine.
