JRSC BBK question

so i got my BBK in today for my JRSC and have an issue. well everthing was included and it came from ford racing but it didnt contain any instructions. now im pretty familar with what is required to change the injectors pulley and MAF seeing as i installed the kit. my problem is with the PCM deal. all it came with was a box and a sticker for UPS for next day. my question is how will they know where to send it back. it has no form to fill out for a return address. was wondering. didnt know if it was something you had to fill out at ups or what. any one who has been through this chime in to let me know. prolly no big thing just kinda scared bout shipping off my PCM with hopes it may one day come back.

Ive heard that the FR tune is perfectly safe and i haven't heard of anyone having any problems with this.

Have fun with probably one of the most reliable boost options on the car!

Let the JRSC bashing begin!!

On a helpful note: PM me your email address and I'll send you instructions.
There's a form you can print out and enclose with the ECM when you send it in.
It's a good tune, don't get discouraged.

Tom's just saying that there could be a better yet just as safe tune to be made to yeild some more power... Alot of us know that but some don't for thoughs who read this.

FR tune is good... some qwruiks but good other wise.

Agreed.
But just about every time those four letters J R S and C pop up in a thread, the put downs start.

WE ALL know Tom is a great tuner, but the FR tune is still a very decent tune, and it's not worth the expense of the added $500 for the tune plus the $$ for a wideband and a flash device to gain a few extra HP.

For the $400 from FR you get a solid tune, smaller pulley, new injectors, and a complete SVT air box with a new MAF. You can't beat that with a bat!

For $500+ for a remote tune, you get: a tune, a perfectly suited to your exact setup tune, but nothing else.
You still need to buy a wideband ~$200 for an LC-1 plus a flash device ~$200 for a used one (That you can't buy on FF)
