Are you wondering why you need a SCT tuner for your Ford Mustang or SVT Lightning? There could potentially be a few reasons for you to own one. The most important reason to own a SCT tuner is to help you unlock the full performance potential of your vehicle. SCT tuners allow you to make changes and adjust certain parameters within your Mustang or Lightning’s ECU to correct things such as air/fuel, rear end gear ratio, tire size and so much more. In simple English – they make your performance modifications and your vehicle work together in harmony!

Not only will SCT Tuners help you in the performance department but they can also help you trouble shoot problems with their ability to read and clear DTC “service engine light” codes. They can also monitor your performance with high speed data logging capabilities.

Whether you are using our custom tune program or having your Mustang or Lightning custom dyno tuned, SCT has you covered with the most powerful tuning software and devices on the market. Pick up a SCT tuning device from Late Model Restoration today! See some of the features of the most popular tuners below.

If you want to get the most performance out of your 96-14 Mustang or 99-04 SVT Lightning, you will need to pick up one of SCT's many Tuners. This simple to use tuning device will allow you to change many parameters on your vehicle. You can also order one of our custom email tunes or get a custom dyno tune to maximize your performance. For many models, the SCT Tuners come pre-loaded with built in files to maximize your aftermarket cold air intake. You can also turn off your rear O2 (oxygen) sensors for your off-road exhaust system and even adjust for different rear end gears. That means no more check engine lights and speedometers that read incorrectly! You can also read & clear DTC trouble codes (check engine light) with your tuner.

We offer the following SCT Tuners:
** SCT X4 Tuner
** SCT SF3 Power Flash (SCT-3015)
