Compact Design. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner measures in at 2.7” wide X 5.5” tall making it much smaller than the original SF3/X3 for easy storage in your center console or glove box. The cord is detachable and there is no battery or power supply needed. It uses the power from your vehicle's diagnostic port or computers USB connection.
Full Color Display. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner features a full color 2-3/4" diagonal LCD screen with user adjustable portrait or landscape modes. The SF4/X4 also has a convenient power saving auto dim feature.
Built-in WiFi. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner is now WiFi-capable meaning you will no longer have to plug it into your PC/Windows computer to receive the latest SCT firmware updates.
Diagnostics. The SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner can also be used as a diagnostic code reader. Save yourself hundreds of dollars each year by reading and clearing your own trouble codes rather than paying a dealer to do the same. Its as easy as a few simple steps.
On Screen Data Logging and Monitoring. With a full color LCD display, the SCT SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner makes it EASY to read the Built-In Data Logging or Real Time Monitored Vehicle Data, view popular sensor data such as EGT, Air/Fuel Ratio or any other 0-5 Volt source.
Easy to load; easy to restore. When you load a SCT pre-configured strategy tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.

Night and day difference
I recieved my tuner last night. Woke up first thing this morning and updated the tuner via wifi. This process was very very easy. It took about an hour to update. I then uploaded the tune to my car. I drive a 2012 mustang GT. 100 stock with the exception of a kandn filter and mufflers. Stock air box, stock exhaust pipe diameter. It took about 5- 10 mins to save my stock tune and upload the new 91octane tune. This is like driving a different car!! Far more power, tight shifts, I'm chirping the tires through 3 gear. Very easy to install and well worth the money.Helpful (0)

I had been wavering on this purchase for awhile. Now I am thrilled I followed through. The throttle response is now amazing, and it feels like a brand new car. It has really opened up the V6. Don’t think about it, just buy it!Helpful (3)

Very nice and works really great. Super easy install just make sure you update the device before installing there was about 470 files that needed to be updated FYI. Big difference shifts kinda hard but I’m going with a mpt custom tune to really get the full potential of my car.Helpful (4)

Be careful on racing tune
This only happened to me once so far. I was on the freeway running the high octane racing tune, when the car decided to go markedly faster on it's own. (I wasn't pressing the accelerator.) I was up a good 30 mph faster than my cruising speed of 55 mph, when just like that it backed down to normal on it's own. This could be a problem if you don't keep your head and panic. Be careful it may happen to you. Other than that good product, and racing tune definitely can smoke some tires off a light.Helpful (9)

This ruined the computer in my car. I read the reviews and I didn’t see any other reviews saying something similar to this but I installed the the tuner step by step and it wouldn’t drive right (when I was accelerating the brakes were being applied and forcing me to slow down) after to the point where I had to replace the entire computer in my car. Very disappointed. Wish I never bought it it cost me time and money.Helpful (37)
What is the difference/benefit of the SCT tuner vs. the BAMA tuner? They look exactly the same...?
The SCT SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner does not come with custom tunes whereas the Bama tuner comes with custom tunes and free tunes for life.
What's is the difference between the bama tuner x4 and the sct sf4? Do both have free tunes for life? I would like to know the difference before I purchase either one thanks
The tuners themselves are the same, but the BAMA x4 sf4 tuner is included with our free tunes for life program, whereas the SCT tuner of the same style does not come with free tunes for life.
how many tunes can this device hold if any?
The SCT SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner would be able to hold up to 10 tunes on the device.
I recently purchased this the SCT SF4 tuner and during set up it "asks" if the car has a Steeda CAI. I am considering purchasing the Steeda CAI and I was wondering if tunes are already pre-installed on the tuner, or do I have to get custom tunes. Please let me know. Thanks!
With the SCT tuner, this will come with preloaded tunes that you can download onto your car for what mod you have. However, since you bought the tuners from us you will be automatically enrolled in Bama's free tunes for life if you wanted to get a custom tune as well! Sincerely,
Will this tuner get better use of any CAI kit? Assuming that it would program the computer to allow for more airflow in the intake.
Any aftermarket cold air intake will benefit and create more power with an new computer tune to the motor. Allowing the vehicle to pull more air will overall make additional power even if you cold air intake does not require a tune.
Tuning and re-calibrating the motor will allow you to get better use out of any cold air intake you can install on the vehicle. Even if your cold air intake does not require a tune to work, your vehicle will still pull more air which will make additional power.
This tuner will be compatible with the 96 Cobra as long as the 98 GT has been returned to stock.
You will only be able to tune one vehicle at a time and all SCT products will have the same vehicle configuration yes.
Hello! This SCT SF4 Power Flash Tuner will work great for your car! While this tuner does come with the initial free tunes, our Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner comes with free tunes for life membership! Both will work excellent for your application.
For the ghost cam tune, you will need to get a custom tune like the Bama Performance tunes.
The SCT SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner will allow you to recalibrate your speedometer after the installation of a different gear.
As long as you have the ODBII port this SCT SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner will work for you.
The SCT SF4 Power Flash Tuner, does not come with free tunes for life however it does come with Pre-Configured SCT Tunes.
Hello, and congratulations on your purchase of that 2 valve 03 GT! Depending on the platform of tuner, if you still have it, some are actually designed to store an unaltered copy of the stock vehicle code. If this is the case, you simply will need to plug the tuner into the OBDII port and revert back to the stock tune. If you do not have the tuner or means of getting the original tuner, you will need to contact Ford to flash your vehicle back to stock.
This tuner will not require any additional parts.
