SCT Tuner

Hey guys I have SCT x3 tuner, I used it for my 2006 gt mustang which i sold for my 13' camaro, I bought it from american muscle and returned the vehicle back to stock when i sold it. I was going to sell this tuner as well until I saw a site selling this same looking tuner for camaros. Could I really use this for my camaro?

I highly doubt it, they will use different programming languages I'm pretty sure. They have different part numbers listed for the 2 cars on their site....

yeah, no.. that's a Ford tool.. it won't work on your camaro....

the DiabloSport inTune or Trinity would both work for your car though!

I have them both available and can definitely get you hooked up. I also offer package deals for them that include my custom tuning at a reduced cost so you'd save $$ on it...

as for the difference between the two... I actually have both the inTune and Trinity for my car... tune wise, the tunes are the same. and of course, my custom tune would be the same as well... the trinity has a few more features, including a performance monitor for 0-60, 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile times, etc... bigger color touch screen... graphic gauges for monitoring data... it has a windshield mount (like a gps), a bigger, color screen, so it's easier to go through while it's mounted... you can watch/view the data without having to hold it, since it's mounted to the windshield... there's also an available gauge pod mount adapter for it, so if you have a gauge pod like on your a-pillar, you could mount it right in there with the pod mount...

the inTune does not have a mount, so you have to hold it or put it on the seat next to you...

But a lot of people like the inTune better - because it's smaller (it's the size of a credit card), they don't need or want the extra features, and it's less expensive...and it's a little easier to use than the Trinity when it comes to data logging and importing/export tune files for custom tuning, since you don't have to use any extra software - everything is just copy/paste with the inTune.

So really, it's up to you which one you'd want... if you don't want/need the extra features/bell-n-whistles, then you can go with the inTune - and it's less expensive...

here are links to their user manuals so you can check them both out:

Trinity user manual:

inTune user manual:

With the custom tune, you'll gain even better/quicker throttle response & acceleration, stronger/harder pull, smoother & quicker power delivery throughout the rpms, etc...

As far as gains go... absolute hp/tq gains are hard to predict... every vehicle is different... even if they're the same and have similar mods... location/weather, fuel used, elevation/altitude, etc etc all play a role... the same holds true for mileage gains - those variables, plus driving habits/style, how much highway vs city driving, etc all make a difference.... you could gain no mpg increase, or you could gain up to about 3 mpg increase... tough to say due to the variables in play... so there is no guarantee of any specific amount of hp/tq or mileage gains...

with the custom tune, I CAN tell you that you will definitely have a very noticeable performance difference/gain over and above the canned preset diablo tunes...

I have gained people anywhere from 12-39hp, and 10-23lb. ft. torque...and 0 to 2 mpg - above and beyond what the preset canned tunes give you... again, obviously mods, fuel used, etc all played a role in who gained what...

any questions, please feel free to hit me up...

Contact SCT. You may be able to send it back to them and have the firmware changed out in the X3. I'm pretty sure you can because I talked with them about doing this after my '11 5.0 crapped out and left me with an unused tuner that they claimed I could use on my '12 camaro SS.
