Old thread, http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=229769

His uploads are in Craig's repository, https://www.moates.net/files.php, which you will need to be a member to access. Though IIRC he did upload them elsewhere. Can't recall where right now.

Finally took a look at some of the files in that repository.

The .xdf used by TunerPro seems like it is pretty straightforward, and could be translated into whatever format necessary (.xml, for example. I haven't looked at the .xml layout of the other programs, but I assume all the data is there in TunerPro's .xdf - the KRAF5 definitions looks reasonably complete).

I haven't peeked into the .bin yet. My Mac wants nothing to do with the .bin, and neither does my Linux install. I'll install the necessary programs on my Windows partition one of these days and poke around a bit...

Hmmm...things might have gotten a bit more interesting for me.

Long(ish) story short(er) - after an unfortunate run-in with a piece of Northern Illinois highway, my SVT was declared 'totalled'. I'm not entirely sure how, but the insurance adjuster found about $5K in repairs.

Anywho...the SVT is getting fixed eventually (anyone know of some ST170 bumpers?), and I bought a Ranger in the mean time...another OBDII Ford Vehicle to play with, once my Focus is back on the road.

This idea of open source tuning really has me interested/motivated. Especially live.

I also learned that a Subaru friend is more than willing to lend me the cables needed for me to learn whatever I can. Maybe I'll dump the Ranger files and see what I can see. I'd feel better attacking a cheap-ass Lima 2.5 before potentially hurting my SVT.
