Re: SCT chip or SCT Programmer?

SCT is by far the best way to go. I see you have done some engine work. Did you do it yourself or have a shop do it. Either way is not bad but if you are a do it yourself person get a programmer or you have more engine mods to come, if not get a chip done. I wish I had gotten a tuner. when I did mine they were just coming out and I had a chip but Jerry @ SCT burned my program directly to my EEC now with Premium above $4.00 I would like to be able to go back to regular for every day driving and us premium on those special get out and play times. Actually with regular you can add 2 gallons of Toluene to a near full tank of gas and make regular into super premium.

If you can't find a local tuner try VMP Tuning - Buy Ford SCT & GM Custom Handheld Flash Tuners Performance Economy Towing
