Hello, I bought the x4 7015 sct tuner and installed the 91 octane tune in my car I have an automatic 6spd GT and in non sport mode it shifts like crap from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd. It jerks pretty bad through those gears. I put the factory tune back and now it shifts totally normal. I didn't mess with any of the shift points in the tune. Has anyone else experienced this or know why this happened? I am going to call SCT but I haven't done that yet. Seeing if anyone knows what causes that problem and how to fix it.

I have Stainless works cat back,airaid intake,bbk throttle body.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. Thank you!

You probably have to contact whoever your tuner is and let them know.

Doesn't sound like you're actually using a specific tuner just the one that comes with the device. If you do have a specific tuner they can make adjustments for your automatic transmission shifts.

Yeah there are some negative perceptions out there of the "canned" tunes coming with the SCT device. I've never tried mine. Just find a reputable tuner and go from there - guessing or using a "canned" tune that worked for one guy's vehicle build may be completely wrong for yours.

It sounds like you were using the preloaded file from SCT, and if so, they will only support a limited amount of modifications. Judging by the list of modifications you provided, that's more than likely the cause. You'll want to get a custom file and all of those issues will go away. If you have any questions, or would like to hit us up for a Lund Tune, please let us know!

Hi there, yes I am using a preloaded tune. If you think getting a custom tune built would help that not to happen that I would be open to talking with you about a Lune Tune, should I talk with you about that and the cost? Are you able to e-mail it to me so I can upload it to my SCT tuner?

Cool, I will do that and work on getting a custom tune. Thanks for the advice

Yes that is right, I am only using the preloaded 91 octane tune for SCT. So it sounds like I need a custom tune so I don't experience this anymore. Thanks for the reply.

Yes because when I first bought the tuner it wouldn't work with my car until I updated the tuner so it recognize a 2017 vehicle. It was just updated less than 1 week ago before I installed the tune

Yes, we would email over the file since you already have the device. The only thing you need would be the SCT software, but you can download that directly from their site.

Feel free to give me a call, and I'll help answer any questions you may have and we can go from there.

I think it might be a sct issue , I got 1 from vmp a week ago with a couple tunes , loaded 1 and the car ran like shit, real lazy dowm low bucked above 4k rpm , no warning lights tho , I thought hmm loaded the ford tune back in ( running ford pp2 ) come too find out I had a ton of communication errors between multiple modules , haven't had time too dig into any farther ........

Dang that sucks, I hope you get that figured out. I am going to order a custom tune probably from lethal performance with my mods and hopefully that fixes the problem.
