^^^i have never seen this kid say anything constructive. i think he has a 3-word vocabulary.

op, yes the predator is only for the svt foci. tom at focus power sells the xcal 3 and a great tune, and you also have randy at fswerks that uses the same unit. both men do great things in my opinion. tom with focus power is a ff vendor.
