xcal 2 question/help

Ok so im on bamachips.com ordering some tunes and I got to the part where it says "Required: Mod list" What goes there? The only mod I have is my K&N drop-in filter. Is that what I would put in that "mods list" box?

This is in the rear of the engine bay at the top just below the hood line.

It will be a four digit code starting with three letters and ending with a number, for example: ERR1

Yep it's a 4 digit code.


As far as mods and the tune. The biggies are what MAF you are using, do you still have your cats, & the is the EGR still there.

Also, ask him to turn on all the options including global spark.

Still have all my cats, EGR is still there. And MAF im not sure about. I just know that its what came on the truck lol I feel like a noob now. And I made the order yesterday so would it be too late to have him turn on the global spark option?

Just call them.

When I started the SCT journey I ordered my x-cal 2 through Bama as well.
(I tune myself now)

He didn't change tranny settings much at all and he didn't turn on all the options. However.. the engine part of his tune was spot on. In all my tuning I've only been able to match the power I was making on his tune.
Tranny functions and customer service though... he's got a lot to learn in those areas.

IDK. I just did what Rich told me and called them and asked them to turn all options including global spark. Is having those options really going to make a difference?
