Xcal 2 still programmable?

Can Bamachips or other vendors like him still program the Xcal 2's?

Thanks

Yes, why wouldn't they be able to?
As long as the xcal2 is unloaded and unlocked, anyone should be able to email you tunes and you can upload them yourself. If it is locked than you will have to send it in.

I just wanted to make sure it was before I bought a used one.

All I need is an ethernet cable to download the tunes from my comp right?

Epic win on the pic, Jake.


lol.



Yeah...I suggest Fred @ Rogue Performance. GREAT customer to tuner communication. Can take a day or so for him to respond to emails, but at least he actually responds. Something that cannot be said about Doug at Bamachips.

I have the Xcal 2 and I love it. Im running 91 torque right now and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm really going to like it here soon when I get my new tires put on so I can calibrate the speedo.

Yes it's just the USB cable that is posted.
But you need to make sure any tunes have been deleted and the tuner has been "unlocked". If the previous owner of the xcal2 at least returned their vehicle to stock, you should be able to delete and unlock it using software on the computer.

For what it's worth, at least with my working with Fred, he sent me the SCT software then the tune files. Use the software to clear the tunes, upload the tunes, make changes, etc. I like how mine still says 'Rachel's Xcal2 by Bamachips' when I plug it into the truck. hahaha.

Could you have a tune from Bamachips and a tune from Rouge Performance on a single programmer?

You can personally load whatever tunes onto it that you want. You could have an F150 tune, a ranger tune, and a super duty tune on it technically. You will only be able to have 1 loaded from the programmer at a time though.
