I Need some help.....
I've had my XCAL II for about 3 maybe 4 years now. and it always worked when i needed it. The last time i used it i loaded a drag tune that had the 2 stage rev limiter Program loaded took it for a spin and then i switched cars and left. So i go back a few weeks later and try to load a street tune but no.... my tuner is busted and wont load any tunes.... i cant reload, return to stock or any other option that would include a tune. I forget exactly what it said but it was something like invalid ECM or invalid stock CRC. I called up to SCT support but there is nothing that they can do. I basically need to buy a new one and start over. So here is my plead for help... I know to load a new tune i have to have one that is set up for my ECU code. But is does anyone know if i can just use a xcal tuner to load it back to stock? right now its stuck on a drag tune for the track that has a rev limited 15% more fuel at wide open throttle, and various other changes and its not fun to drive with traffic. If anyone has a xcal tuner with the ecu code DKG1 in the greater texas area i would really really appreciate if you would tune my car back to stock!! i know this is a long shot but im desperate. this happened a few months ago so i just used my truck as a daily driver.... long story short my brother lost his job, his car got reposessed he and his girl had to use my truck then they destroyed my truck and now i have no choice but to drive my focus like this... of course i'll drive out to meet anyone who is willing to help me out and i'll take em out to dinner or something like that!! I just got engaged (for the second time since having my focus lol ) and need to save money for the wedding and sadly there is no play in my budget to buy a new tuner. Im even trying to sell my CF EVO hood to get money to buy a new one!!! if anyone knows anything about this i would really appreciate the help!

Both of my Xcal tuners are locked. The Xcal3 is locked to my car and the Xcal2 has a "hot rod FI" tune if i'm not mistaken. Lemme get back to you about my Xcal2 to see if it will work (but i doubt it). I have to ask someone a couple of questions.
Also, if i'm not mistaken you should be able to go into any Ford dealership and ask for a stock reflash. They should be able to oblige.

well i contacted mak haik ford in georgetown and the tech i talked to said he could do it but it would take several hours and about 100 bucks... might just have to get it done there...
