Call Tommy Higgins at Higgins Ford Performance 770-949-1234. He has a dyno and can tune it. He can sell you the SCT plug-in module, too, if you don't have one.

Mike,
Please pardon my D.A., but what is an SCT plugpin module?

Our EEC's can't be reprogrammed on their own, they don't have reprogrammable flash memory like the new cars do. So, in order to have a new program for the EEC to follow it has to held in a separate module often called a 'chip' that is plugged into the EEC's service port. It actually has 2 chips on it. One holds the program and the other interfaces the memory chip with the EEC circuitry. You can put up to 4 different programs plus the stock tune in them. I have a switch with mine that allows me to switch from the stock tune to the dyno tune. This module is about $300. If your car has OBD2 then you have flash memory on board and you won't need the 'chip'. BTW, Higgins is in Douglasville just off of Hwy 5 and I-20 west.

Just FMI, how much does the chip + the dyno and tune typically cost. I'm adding a FMIC, ported intake and return plenums, a 73mm MAF, 70mm TB, and I'm also running a blended fuel @ about 100 octane. I've got all the parts in hand and should have it finished up before the SVRA thing in Oct. I'm also building a MarkVIII pumpkin with 3:73's and want to have my shift points adjusted (4r70w). I'm assuming he could do that too. Is the chip programable from a notebook computer, or does it require a special tool?
