The SVTF does not have an aftermarket chip out so far, but FOCUS SPORT is working on one. I did contact Fordchip.com (gave wrong address at first, sorry) and they will reflash the SVT chip program for $298. Also, an RLA7 reflash is coming out in about 30 days and will be available from the dealer.

Haven't heard anyone mention this one yet but has he thought about going with a Haltech engine management system? This a pricey alternative but this system does work extremely well with SC or Turbo apps and is not so much a "band aid" as simply flashing the B.A.T. chip that comes with our cars. Just thought I'd throw this in and I'm not positively sure it would interface with our cars but it's worth a little research on your friend's part since he did invest in the SC...........when it comes time to Turbo my car this system (if it'll work) is definitely one thing I will factor into the price if for nothing more than being extremely tunable.

Do a search on RLA7. We've gone over it a ton of times. Those threads will be more helpful than I.
Pio - Check out my title. If it can be resurected it will be. Nothing is safe from the Postus Reserectus.[}:)]

Dude, did a search on 'RLA7' and got nothing, zip, nada!!!

I hate these people who always reply with 'Do a search' who have obviously not check the search themselves! Just give us the answer if you know it. No need to teach every noob a lesson on how to search. If you feel like typing, just type the answer!

And another thing... '... more helpful than ME!'.

[:p] I love the latin stuff ;-)

Hey Infra3sv,

Major apologies! I'm an ass who does not know how to search! I take back the 'search' comments. If you search for RLA7 you DO get a ton of info. I was searching by user name. Go figure. I flame someone for not doing their homework and then I do just that myself!

Oh well. I'm not perfect afterall ;-)

It's still '... more helpful than ME!' though ;-)

Its not RLA7 it is RLA6.

As already stated the YRF0 is still the recent "Band-Aid" from Ford for the ECU.


Infra whats up you, this is like the second thread I've come across that was resurected. [:)]
