    Ok so you will all think I'm an idiot but I have a question. I bought my friends sct tuner from him but it was in married to his old v6 so when I got home I was curious and I plugged it in to my car and was look at all the stuff and while I was looking at it, it slipped out of my hand and when I caught it I accidentally pressed the continue button and it was on his custom tune and it started to download the tune and I pulled it out of the obd poet am I fine or should I be worried

    Wow, I really don't know but I would say you're safe. Since it was married to the other car, it probably didn't get the ECU unlocked to actually do the download (actually it's an upload but SCT doesn't know the difference). Get it back to your friend and have him put his factory tune back on and get it unmarried. Otherwise, you'll be spending big money to get SCT to unlock it. On top of that, you'll want to buy a custom tune for your car. If it's a Bama tuner, and probably others, it will have a strategy tune that you can use (after getting it unmarried) but they won't be as good as a custom tune.
