i dont have No2...so i am thinking this would be the best one since i am not going to need a 2 or 3 stage chip....paying that extra 100 or so bucks would be a waste...i just really want the chip to either get rid or raise my rev lim and my speed lim...all the extra power up to 14 hp and up to 23 torque claim and MPG 0-2 claim is like a bonus for me ..what do you guys think

yeah i really don't think that chip will work. The PZEV's computer code has yet to be cracked as far as i know. The generic chips will not work as far as i know.

sure you could buy a chip...although i dont belive there is anywhere to put it...I think the duratec will require some sort of flashing.

They are mistaken, there is currently NO chip for the duratec in the PZEV focus.



It has the new Black Oak ecu, that has not been cracked yet....and trust me, if they had....it would be big news.


You are just going to have to wait.

Buy it then. And report back to us when you get it and put it in.

I am currently the prototype PZEV for focussport/2.3L PZEV and I can PROMISE you that NO chips are available for this platform. Diablo is mistaken. Even if you bought the chip there is no place to install it on the factory ECU as there are no open ports like the ZETEC platform. It is going to have to be flashed directly once someone cracks the black oake POS! If you dont believe it go take your glove box out and yank the ECU out before you hassle with something that wont work :) -Vince

Hey Folks,

Below is a copy of the e-mail I sent to Diablo and a reply from their tech advisor.

Bottom line: NO CHIP!

YET...

Hello,

Has your copmany developed a chip that works for the 2004 Ford Focus 2.3L
PZEV Duratech engine? If not, are there plans to develop a unit for this
application in the future and when?

Thanks,

Glenn

Currently this is still in development.

Thank You

There is no place for a chip, period. If you do not believe those of us who have said this. Go out to your car, find your ECu and look at it. Now, take a pic and point out to me where you are going to install a chip.

Btw the comment about the doubling of the gas bill was just ignorant.

Ya. It's only about two dollars more a week( for 10 gallons) or $104 extra on gas for the year.
I spend more than that on top ramen in a year. LOL

Dude, 104 in ramen would feed you for life.

Nah, that's only 1040 top ramen meals.
So, that would last me about a year at about 3 or 4 a day...LOL
