ECU Flash

Tom,
Can I send you an ECU and have you flash it with a custom tune? I have access to an additional ECU for the SVT and want to know if I can the just swap out the units. And if needed, just swap the original unit back in when I go in for warranty work. I don't want to spend the additional money on a Predator if i don't need to. Thanks in advance.

You need to tho , the Focus has a PATS (security system in short) that wont allows the ECU to be changed with out Ford resetting 2 keys , if this isnt done then you Focus wont start with the nes ECU

You have to get a flasher

Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify, the PATS code is unique to the ECU and is not changeable by Ford or through a reflash. When a car's computer is changed, the keys must be programmed to match the new ECU. The new ECU can not be changed to match the existing keys. Is this correct? Thanks, again.
