I answered your PM but for everyone elses benefit I will write here too.

I cannot speak for diablo, but with one of our tuners if you were to get a new one it would work just fine. It would just upload and store what is currently flashed in your car (performance tune) as the "stock" file. Then, going back to stock would be going back to the state the car is currently in. You would never really have a true stock processor. With where you are now, the only way to do that would be to take it to ford and have them flash it.

We do have recovery files we use for issues but this requires getting the stock file off the device in order to get all of the PATS info so that option is not available to you.

I would just get a new tuner if it is one of ours and go on your merry way.
