. EEC Editor and Tunerpro support the t4mo [cbaza .def]. I just spent $175 shipped for everything to burn a chip. Future chips will be $55. Plus I can use the BURN1 hardware to burn gm proms. The learning curve is about the same as with a tweecer. Download the software and see if you can figure it out.
So far only the smog stuff eliminated, manifold size, throttle body airflow, timing [93 octane], rpm and speed limiters have been altered. By flipping a switch I can go to a tune with stock timing for cheap gas. No check engine lights with the egr unplugged! Before, the egr was just sitting there with the vacuum and sensor hooked up- no place for it to bolt up on my intake.
Runs alot better part throttle. For some reason it takes alot less pedal to get up to speed and stay there. I noticed my stft @ idle went to -6. It was hovering around 0 before. More timing means less air and fuel to maintain idle? Could just be a different tank of gas though
Wide open is the same or maybe better???? Today I'm installing the freebie 24 lb injectors from a buddy's junked 460
I'm going to try an almost stock j4j1 Cobra tune at first. I want all the bugs worked out before introducing a bigger change- 342 with bigger cam.
Now I'm looking to buy a chip emulator, a Ford adapter for it and a laptop. With the emu I could make real time changes or even enter a whole new bin with the engine running. That option will be $215 + whatever a laptop costs. The emulator would also work on gm products and hondas with a proper adapter. It's easy enough removing the chip and taking it inside to burn it, but the j3 port will wear out eventually
With this approach, once a final tune is reached I can just leave the chip in place and forget it.

However, if you aren't up to tuning this yourself, you might be better off going this route and just having Lonnie Doll create a program for you and sending you the chip.
UPDATE... OMG my car is way faster and smoother. I put those 24lb'rs in and copied all the j4j1 tables and scalars to my t4mo bin. For some reason the j4j1 bin gave me a rom checksum error code, so I didn't use it. Going with a fox style intake was a godsend today in the hot shop. I had that sucker purring within 30 minutes.
