EDIT: ok, went ahead and just ordered me a AEM wideband. so i guess now my ques. would be, since i have a gutted cat, i can just use the 2nd 02 bung for the sesnsor? and when i get a tune from u, u can just turn that CEL off.
Yes second o2 bung is what to do

I was just wondering how long you will be having this up.

plus I think you would have a good tune with the f2 mods since you and that one dude seem to get along real good lol
I hope for a good bit yet

I am trying to save some money (dont want to sound cheap, not as rich as my brother nick egbertnr ) but there is a guy going to Sping into focus up in columbus and is wanting to sell his xcal 2 for 100. would that still work? and what all do i need to make sure i get from him if he sells it?
thanks tom

for the xcal2 you need to make sure he puts his stock file back on his ECU so the xcal will be unlocked. you need to make sure it is compatible with your ECU code but that MIGHT be dealt with in the tune (im not sure). you also need a printer cable to plug the xcal into your laptop and a 9 pin-din cable to plug into the top of the xcal and then to your wideband gauge if you have one or if you're planning on getting one. excellent investments. if you dont have one you should get one. also you NEED a laptop to datalog with if you have a xcal2. they will not datalog by themselves, you have to plug them into a laptop and run livelink as you are making the log. the xcal3 doesnt need a laptop. if they werent so expensive i would upgrade to a xcal3. i bought my X2 about 3 months before the X3 came out. i was so pissed because i had no idea they were coming. i would have just waited and paid the same price for a much better unit. however the X2 gets the job done so what more can a guy want?

this is where i got my 9 pin-din cable. i know its a bit pricey compared to the stuff you can find on ebay but these things are really getting hard to find.

you dont have anything to worry about then. john would probably yank a knot in the guy's ass before he let him rip somebody off.

Do you have xcal 3 tunes for the SVT?

I ask because I also have a ranger and the xcal 3 will also work for it and I would like to use the same one for both.

Yes I do SVT tunes as well , you can only tune one car with the flasher at a time and when you change back and forth from car to car it adds up and will lock the xcal

just out of curiosity, do you know of anyone that does tuning for the 2.5L ford ranger? a buddy of mine could probably use one. as a matter of fact it was the same buddy that used his wee little 4 banger ranger to tow my focus to your shop last year.
