i believe you have the duratec engine, so you will need an ecu flasher, not a chip. do you have any mods so far? if not, you may wanna wait for the flasher

With the Duratec, your best bet is to get a good intake after your exhaust. Alot of people here clam that a tune on the Duratec with just an exhaust & intake does not give you enough extra power to get one. If you are going with a turbo set up or a supercharger, the tune is a must. So I would save my money and go with an intake. More bang for your money.
