Cortex multiple users

so i have done a little searching and i cant seem to find an answer,

i am planning on splitting a superchips cortex programmer with a friend of mine who has an 06 xterra 4.0L

i was wondering if we will face any problems like if the programmer needs to be plugged in to work, or if the programmer imprints itself to a vehicle, or if there is a difference between the two vehicles even though superchips says the same model works for both vehicles since they have the same engine.

i assume i will encounter no problems but would like other peoples opinion or if anyone has any first hand experience with this. i haven't emailed superchips themselves because the way i figure it they have a vested interest to tell me that i need to buy 2

thanks for the help

Once you tune a vehicle, it stores the factory tune on the programmer, and locks itself to that VIN. You can not tune 2 vehicles with one programmer, it simply won't let you until you return the vehicle back to stock. Then you can use it on another vehicle it was calibrated for. I just ordered my cortex through Autozone for $299, which is the lowest price I have seen for a new one, and some used.
