I took my '05 f150 back to Karl Flammer yesterday for a tire problem. The tire sidewall was gouged by something I must have run over in the road. Tire was replaced with no problem.
While waiting I roamed over to the new Mustang pasture to watch them graze.
A salesman walked over (of course!) and we chatted for a while. I played completely ignorant (no much acting necessary) about improving my trucks get up and go. He immediately mentioned chips and tuners. He said they are looking into doing a chip and some other things to one of the '06 Mustangs they have on display in front of the main showroom beside US 19.
I should go talk to him a little more if he is not busy; he said sales were quite slow. Wouldn't it be cool if an XCal2 or Edge or... would become Ford sanctioned/authorized/blessed/approved modifications that in no way impacted a vehicles warranty. I am not sure why Ford doesn't do that now on their own. I mean, some of these cars come with a horrible firmware controlling the trannie shifting and other parameters. I know my truck is taking a beating with the p.o.s. firmware from the factory. It doesn't downshift for crap and O/D goes from 4th to 3rd just way too much! Ford should consider banning Ford firmware!!!
