Tuner Question

Ok so i'm new to the whole tuner thing. i have plenty experience with engine builds but never have had the chance to get into the computer aspect. my friends brother had an svt a while back and bought the svt predator tuner for his car. he traded the car in and took the tune off the car before he traded it in and said i could have the tuner would this be of any use on my 2001 zx3? or would it just cause chaos not to sure how close(or not close) the ecu and sensor setup is between the svt and zx3. any help i would greatly appreciate.

yes, you can buy a tune and put it on the diablo, but once again, it will only be for the SVT. this is only for the SVT

You should be able to send it back to Diablo though, and they can make it work on your ZX3

the diablo cannot work for the anything but the SVT, they cannot reprogram it, PM 1turbofocus or Blivit, they are both SCT reps and they will tell you the same thing. 1turbofocus is a tuner and Blivit is an SCT corporate rep (i think)

Here some of the Tuning guys can help you out and give you some more options to get you rolling. Hopefully into something you can use.

The Predator can only work on the SVT , it cannot be made to work with any other Focus
I can sell you the xcal3 , custom tune and FREE NA updates as you add more mods for 399.00 and 20.00 for shipping
