Short of how would you get a hold of the new firmware if they won't release it I can't see it harming things if the modules were the same, a dealer might be able to do so, but if the hardware is different it would either not work or would just brick it.

If some one knows how to get the firmware/ software off of the module in an installable form that isn't working for Ford it might be worth a shot, then again it may completely invalidate the warranty on the apim module itself (the brains of the sync system).
