Marty, i bought a silver birch back in feb, it has a xcal 3 tuner. I was wondering if it has one of your tunes in it.

If i plug in the tuner, is there a definitive file name for a marty tune?

Just wondering what tune is in the car.

Thanks

The SCT X4 device requires Windows to handle anything coming from outside of SCT. If you activate the WiFi function and log it onto an available network, the device will automatically ‘call home’ for firmware updates and ‘canned tune’ updates. A Windows computer running Vista or above is required to load custom tunes into the device.

I'm using Oracle VM Virtual Box on my Macbook Pro to run Windows 10. It's a little slow because my MBP is a few years old, but it's good enough to run SCT's software on it.

I’d rather partition the HD as I don’t need to run both OS at the same time.

I have roughly 80GB available each on both machines and Boot Camp stated I needed at least 40GB for the install. Started install and message stated I didn’t have enough space for the install. I’d rather keep Windows and Mac on separate machines anyway.

This will be my first ownership experience with a windows machine. The one I ordered is pretty much ‘bare bones’ as I feel that will be all I need for what I’ll put on it.

Fair enough. I have a 500gb and a 1tb drive in my laptop. I'm not hurting for space, lol. Best of luck with your Marauder!
