probably not...I think without any other mods you can hardly get 5hp out of SCT XCAL. I've never seen anybody use that one here.

Wasted your money my friend.

NO Duratec ECU can be "chipped". You can only modify our ECU's via the handheld SCT tuner and a proper tune by a professional (unless you pay $700 for the SCT Pro Racer package where you can make your own tunes)

That company is a joke. Research around this site if you want to improve your ride.

Really your best option would be an SCT Flasher.

I would really try and get my money back on what you purchased.

It's not a chip, it's the cheap resistor trick they sell on ebay. It's a bunch of BS. Notice how the "chip" is the same for every vehicle. Holy cow, they also sell "performance" spark plugs for $98 What a bunch of snake oil.

Read some of the reviews

"Also, you product is the best performance chip that I have ever had the pleasure of trying out. I have easily gained 30 horsepower out of my Silverado. Thanks again guys."

"My BMW needed some more power because I was having a real hard time beating my friends. After your chip, my friends got a surprise they couldn't believe. They all thought I added NOS. Thanks for the awesome product!!!"

"My Mazda 3 feels awesome NOW!!!! I can actually make the tires spin with my automatic!!!!!!! Thanks for the sweet chip."

Ah, and here's some genius that thinks it actually somehow changed his shiftpoints:

"DEAR EPC,HI,I JUST INSTALLED MY CHIP,APPROXIMATELY 10 MINUTES AGO,AND ALL I CAN IS F--KING WOW,THE RESPONSE,POWER,AND THE TRANNY SHIFTS ARE UNREAL,AS I STATED PREVIOUSLY,MY NEXT PURCHASE IS YOUR HYPERBOOST O2 MODULE,AND THE AIR INTAKE MAXIMIZER."
