SCT....you can find them used (flashed back to stock) on here, from focus sport, Hypnotic illusions auto, ebay, all over........ SCT's Xcal2 is the way to go.

and yes, they basically remap the air and fuel delivery to optimize performance, or fuel economy. you can change idle, speedo readings, air/fuel, all kinds of stuff.....I know the SVT's get rtecorded 10-12HP to the WHEELS from an SCT flasher.

I read a post from Tom somewhere on here that unless you have a heavily modded engine, these aren't worth it for non-svt.

idk, to me its worth it to optimize my MPG and get that LAST lil juice out of my engine that needs to be unlocked. U get to remap the tire size too, cause for me, my whole odometer is off right now do to my rims...plus, u can check codes b4 u even pop the hood. plus that GOD dang EGR system gets disabled...
