Well, Duratecs actually can't be chipped. There's no slot for one on the ECU or whatever the other cars have that let them use one.

You can however, tune/program the chip with something like the XCal-2 from SCT. Does essentially the same things chips can do, but there's not a physical chip, instead you "flash" the ECU. Think more like software upgrade versus hardware, in computery terms.

I was just reading about the chip reflasher. It says that it raises the speed limiter, but it doesn't say how much. Does anyone know?
