what is it good for? sorry but i havent looked much into these.
what does each tune provide, and do you have to switch between each tune or.....?
A chip allows you to change the stock Ford tune in the EEC (computer) based on modifications and such.
These tune currently on the chip are specific to my car so they aren't what is for sale here because there is no assurance that they will be safe for your car. In fact I can probably guarantee they won't be.
You are buying a SCT programable chip that holds up to four different tunes. The chip would need to be erased by your tuner and reprogramed for your engine and to your needs. I don't know that you would need four different tunes but I did. Now I don't.
Doesn't matter. They are specific to my engine and my engine only. If someone wants to install the chip and see how your engine will run using them or how the different tunes effect your engine that's your call but I will not be responsible for anything you do to your engine using specifications meant solely for my engine.
I repeat... the tunes on the chip are specific to my engine. You want a list of what they are, more or less, I will be happy to oblige.
1. Everyday street tune
2. ubber safe street tune
3. race tune
4. dyno tune
You need to have the car tuned. This chip needs to be reburned specific to your engine and your needs. It really is that simple. We're not talking about taking the tires off my car and seeing how they look on yours. We're talking about the commanded specifications that tell the engine everything from how to idle to what rpm and spark to set at WOT. Believe me when I tell you your engine will not respond like mine and more then likely may do some serious harm to it.
If you were to call SCT and order a new chip and cable it would cost in excess of $350. This chip is on sale for about 40% that price. You just need to erase the tunes that are already on it and start anew.
Understand that, just didn't know what you had it set up for (i.e. I didn't know whether you had a stocker 3.8 or a blown 32V 4.6...or somewhere in between).
Sorry, I forgot I took my sig down. You're right of course, but the chip will work with any engine.
The chip is out of a 1995 3.8LSC engine with a 5 speed manual transmission. A few modifications have been made to the engine including the usual CAI, FMIC, headers and exhaust and has a cam and some work done to the heads. It makes a little more then the usual amount of power and the 4 tunes are each set for a specific purpose.
