I got the SF3 about 8 months ago for my mildly modded GT. As soon as it was installed I could tell a major difference in power and also it did not kill or harm my MPG at all. Since the first tune, I've put a few more minor mods on and my MPG has still stayed the same. I just sent out for another tune this afternoon. I would recommend this to any mustang owner modded or not. Its a great addition and can be changed time and time again no matter what route you go with your stang!

This is my 5th SCT product and they have yet again proven themselves to be the leader in aftermarket tuners. My 2010 F150 had a lack of throttle response. it drove me nuts. So i decided to get the SF3 3015 and it made a huge difference in the throttle response in my 5.4L 2010 F150. I also gained 1.7-2.0 miles per gallon of gas. I was getting 14.2-14.4 now i get 15.8-16.2. I will like always recommend this product to my fellow racers.

I just bought my 2011 5.0 this week, automatic convertabile with 3.15 gears. Ordered the SCT on day two. The tuner did as all the reviews say, immediate difference with no other mods! Running the 93 octane tune, everything stock, the top end range pulls hard and starts are more fun too. Amazing value for the price.

I have a 99 crown vic p71 retired police car. the 99 stock computer is set up good, in fact people change out later year vics for 99 pcm's. i bought this tuner mainly to firm up and change the shifting of the transmission. I was really happy with the trans firmness and shifting points. the power gains was ok also. not a world of difference but noticeable. for what i wanted it was 100% worth it, the best part about it was i got a BOC tune and that was WAY INCREADIBLE!! get this tuner and use it to data log and send that to a aftermarket shop for a custom tune(it holds up to three along with the hree that comes with the unit) and watch out!! just FEW bolt ons and a custom tune from BOC gave nearly 50 RWHP and almost 20 pds tq. very nice bang for the buck product!!!

Ordered the tuner, recieved it the next day! Read the Quick Start Guide, plugged it in and followed the instructions, easy, easy, easy. Wow what a difference, it runs like a different truck, I was truly speechless at the change. Start up and idle were better than new! Throttle response was unreal! We all know the 6.0L Fords have they're issuse, its just never run this well and I have 122K miles on it! I should have done this much sooner. I have several other upgrades to install like the EGR Delete and MBRP exhaust, I can't wait. This was such a turnaround for the truck I ordered one for my 04' F350 Too! Highly recommend this product, you will not regret it! Thanks SCT!

I have run a Super Chip tuner in my 06' 6.0 ltr for the past 5 years- recently my mechanic told my I should try the SF3 that I would be happier with it over the SC. Wow that was an understatement- the power difference if hard to believe. Only complaint I have is the firmware update software is not supported on apple/Mac computers- just make sure you have access to a pc.

I did a 4.0" turbo back exhaust, a stage 3 AFE cold air intake, an EGR delete and some upgraded head bolts. After I was done doing the important things to my 6.0L ford 350 Harley Davidson I put a SCT SF3 program in it. It is not the most powerful truck on the road but it nukes the rear tires if I want to, takes off like a sports car, improves my fuel economy, passes easily, towes amazing and sounds freaking amazing. My truck sounds like a jet now. The other day I rolled heavy coal into the window of a ricer who was pounding some lame hip hop really loud at a red light! His girl wagon dissapeared in the black cloud of love dust I left him! LOL. It was epic. I love my truck.

I'm the mechanic for a major landscape company & we own an f250 & f350 both 2007 with the 6.0 diesel. the 350 pulls a 10yd dump trailer that weighs 14,000 empty. before the SF3 the truck was a disgrace trying to pull the trailer. after the SF3, the truck doesn't even break a sweat pulling the trailer. f250 got the same treatment & now both perform like a real truck should!!!

I've turned my LINCOLN LS Sport from a "creeper" into a "SLEEPER" .... I purchased the 3015 tuner along with a CAI and EXHAUST; the overall improvement is truly AMAZING!! I noticed a huge "seat of my pants" difference right away. Since I've not seen alot of LINCOLN reviews, I thought I would share that I've seen nearly a 20% INCREASE IN FUEL ECONOMY!!! Do the math, this thing pays for itself in no time. This tuner is a MUST HAVE item.

This product provided amazing results! Just when I thought that my V6 couldn't get any better, this tuner sure proved me wrong! The three custom tunes gives me the choice to modify my Stang and allow me to choose the best tune that supports my driving needs. I wish I purchased one of these many miles back! Thanks guys for making a true reliable unit that gives more than positive results!!. Best regards, John

This was definitely the best money I ever spent on my Mustang. With a 91 octane tune and K&N cold air intake the change in performance was fantastic. For the first couple of weeks I was scared to really drive it. I firmed up the shifts and now there is no problem getting rubber, from the stop light and between shifts.....great product!!

Very impressed with the SCT. Recently did EGR combo delete, 4" TB Exhaust with 4" dp, topped it off with the SF3. My 05 350 is a different truck!! Never has started and ran this smooth with so much throttle response! The SF3, cost effective and so easy to set up!! Thanks

SCT SF3 Power Flash Ford Programmer Customer Rating:
This is by far the best tuner I have owned and would recommend it to anyone. One thing though, if you plan on doing more than a CAI and tuner as I have then it's worth every penny to take your car to Ken and/or Mike in Sanford and have them throw a custom tune on your device. These guys did such a great job on my car that I can't wait to get more parts just so I can take it back to them!

Awesome!!! As promised, it took off the check engine light for the egr delete kit, boosted horsepower, and I am getting 18mpg on freeway @ 70 mph cruise control (performance setting). It will also smoke the back tires in first gear. Mine does black smoke in performance setting when you punch it. Best program for the money. LOVE IT!!!!

SCT SF3 Power Flash Ford Programmer Customer Rating:
This tuner is great i insatlled the 93 octane tune on my 4.0 mustang and it realy made a diffrence in throttle responce, shift firmness, and a huge diffrence at wide open throttle, it runns better then the day it left the dealer. I recomend this product to anyone looking to get better fuel mileage or enhance the performance of their vehicle, the only down side i have found is that when my car first starts it revs up to 1000 rpm then goes down to almost shutting off then smothes out immeaditly it only happens on start up and lasts for a second but i still love th product and recoment it to anyone.

What a difference! The 4.6L in my 4x4 Supercrew was anemic with hesitation and throttle lag. Downloaded the 87 octane program and the difference is night-and-day. No more hesitation. Crisp throttle response. Excellent shift points. It's a whole new driving experience! Have yet to try "towing" or 91 octane performance programs but am sure I'll be just as pleased. The difference in driving on the first day made the purchase price worhwile!

When I first got my truck i bought a superschips cortex programmer, which was fine until i got new head studs and gaskets. Then i upgraded to the sct programmer, which blows the cortex out of the water. Thanks SCT

Being a new diesel owner and always hearing the gains that SCT provided from friends that own diesel trucks. I'm still blown away with the changes in the performance after installing the program. It's unreal !! and not to mention the MPG gains I've received. There's nothing better than filling up driving 240 miles one way and look down and still have 3/4 of a tank of fuel..."and that's with the provided performance program" I'm a SCT fan for life

All i can say is "wow" After having a recall done on my truck i noticed a slight power loss, then a new "FICM" installed and that was it i now drove a slug untill questioning my diesel tech he told me the truck was de-tuned because of federal emmisions issues, If i would have known that i wouldn't have had the recall done, anyway i purchased the sc3 tuner 3015 and within 15 minutes my baby was back and better than ever, thank you Chris from XDP in New Jersey and thanks to SCT for a kick ass product at a great price.

it works great with the car, the one reason i bought the unit for i guess has been removed from the SF3 that was it was suppose to allow me to change rear gear rations but sct is working hard to help me correct the issues as for power it is like night and day on the unit and the way the car runs now
