the unit is unlocked when it returns the original car back to it's factory tune, if this has not been done then no tuner or even Herrods can unlock it

Like Mick said, if the flash tuner has not been flashed back to stock on the car it came off, then it is no good to anybody and cannot be used.

If this has been done then yes, we could.
However we do not deal with generic tunes at all, we will only custom tune a car

Custom tuning is the only real way to go and using Elite would be a good choice

So you're saying a locked SCT without its married vehicle is basically a throwaway item?
Almost all 2nd hand ones I've seen are locked, makes you wonder if the sellers know or they're trying to flog them off anyway.
