What device are you using
Enhanced XCal 3

Year/make/model and strategy of vehicle you are logging
2003 SVT Focus

What is the firmware revision on it
Current Version:1.2.121-3000

What version of livelink are you using
Live Link 6.1

What operating system is on your computer
Win7 Pro

I know its very well documented on here, but i was asked to add this to the list.

I must also say, this is not a 'bash' on SCT, but they need to get this addressed. The SCP Protocal was "sporactic" on the old live link, and now it only logs for 10-20 seconds before freezing. When i called SCT to see when it would be address and/or who I needed to speak to about a refund so I could go get a DiabloSport, the Tech I talked to told me they "Could not reproduce" the condition on their local 03 SVTF and couldn't find a car locally that did it.. He also told me there was no evidence of an issue and, I'm quoting here, they are "working on other issues with other cars" and that the Focus Engineer "had no estimate on a firmware update"..

Again, not a bash, simply a report on what I experienced thus-far..

I've got the stock-ish SVTF as far as Engine mods, working with Tom's tune and having issues with it. I NEED to be able to datalog as the car become undrivable at times.. Without the datalog, he can't fix it and its a $500+ investment sitting as a paperweight.. (I did the XCal3, Dashscan and tune special).

When I was Datalogging, the ONLY PID's I was doing as LOAD, SPARK and ENGINE SPEED..
