Your ford chip is easy to install. All you need to do is take out your computer and install the chip. There is some goop on the prongs where the chip goes, and you need to clean that off. Ill look for a how-to i remember seeing one somewhere. All that tallk about programming, is probably because ford chip does dyno tunes. They tune the chip so that the car runs the best that it can.
Also you need to test that chip out and see how the car runs, you may need to get it reburned if its incorrect anywhere.

10 or 12 and 4-5 hours of testing and diagnosis we did all types of test compression, ignition heat rang test, A/F test, O2 sensor test, vacume test. Hell we even test the test. We had one cylinder showing about a 80* difference and found 5 hp by just changing that plug.
