Gotcha, well the engine is a different year if that makes a difference. The car is a 96. The engine came out of a mercury tracer, and was in another ford escort before the tracer. Could I change the computer if the engine isn't a 96?
Wouldn't it just be easier to get the correct computer? The 96 is also an OBDII car and if your state requires that they plug in to the car's computer for inspection you will fail without the correct computer.
It's not driven on the road, it's a full blown non-street legal racecar... gutted and all... roll cage, aluminum racing seat... everything. the problem i have is that it has a rev limiter that comes in at 6250 and we cant run a racing comp on the engine so i need to get the rev limiter out so i can get it to turn around 7 grand. The next step is to find out where i can get it reprogrammed to get the limiter out... any help?
The problem is the programmer will lock it self to what ever computer it was last used on and won't let you use it on another until you put the last one back to stock or have the company reset it for $200.
And FYI, the company is not all that cooperative when it comes to getting them to reset it. They'll try everything they can to sell you a new kit. And I never got a straight answer about transfering the software either.
I have always wondered where you can get an OBDII tuning system that doesn't lock onto a vehicle. The thing that surprises me is I can't find anybody that has thought about hacking the lock on one of these tuners. Its probably pretty easy but the people who could do it would rather crack Windows or put free games on their cell phone.
Oh dag on thats dissapointing. Thats pretty crappy on the company's part I think. You would have to buy one for every car at the shop! Does anyone know by chance where I could send it off to have it reprogramed?
