Easy to program, but a little confusing about all the options that are available for the custom tune. Need more explanation. Overall the performance really kicks up a notch, especially when adding the cold air intake!

SCT X3 Power Flash Ford Programmer Customer Rating:
Highly recommend, especially if you have an automatic in your Pony. VASTLY improved throttle response throughout the rev range, especially at lower speeds, off the line, stoplight to stoplight, etc. but equally cool is how it "transformed" the auto transmission- I never liked the factory shift points, it would always seek the next highest gear before you wanted it to and it was also reluctant to downshift when you put your foot in it a little. I'm sure this is for fuel economy reasons but we don't buy our Pony's because we're worried about gas mileage! Anyway, the X3 changes the shift points to much more an enthusiast's preference, it will stay in the lower gears alot longer before shifting and it no longer gives you one of those annoying "are you sure you want to do that?" pauses before it downshifts in response to throttle inputs. It totally changes the personality of the car and in a very satisfying way. This is how Ford should have set it up stock. My only regret is that I waited so long to do it. By far the best "bang for the buck" mod I have done to my GT yet!

I have a 2011 Ford Fusion Sport and this product has really opened up the engine and allowed it to breathe better. Throttle response is a vast improvement from Ford's "Are you sure you want to accelerate programming."

So I have a 2010 Ford Flex yes a Flex with the 3.5 L ecoboost twin turbo. The tune has given me better fuel eco and lots of power. Shifts are much crisper and the rev limiter in neutral is gone. there is so much you can do to make your car drive the way you want it to. I have a Flex that does a 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds. for a 4400 lbs suv thats fast. and a 13 sec 1/4 is nice too. I could go on about all the other great options but you should find out for your self. or get passed by some one with one like me.

After a few tuning issues due to the firmware upgrades, I finally had my car tuned, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I am seeing much better gas mileage (about 4-5 mpg in town, more on low rpm highway speeds, and still averaging around 23 mpg at 75-80 mph on the interstate), a more responsive throttle (stock TB since the BBK was removed and wouldn't work correctly, even tuned), plus an easy-to-use programmer/computer interface. It really woke the car up. Bonus, everyone in my area uses SCT only...nice for the dyno tune to come. Only cons I found since I've had this (about a year or so) are the updates and troubles associated beforehand, still haven't gotten the data logging to take place (not saving the required file to the device on XP, but maybe my Win 7 will make it happen now), and still having issues with my front o2 sensors; the computer seems to not allow enough time for warm-up before it starts sputtering at low rpm...sometimes tripping the sensor bank codes for stuck rich. I do have aftermarket longtubes, so maybe the data given Bama was incorrect. Will be installing yet another firmware update and hopefully this resolves the data corruption. Otherwise, when she runs, she RUNS HARD! Thanks for the updates and 4 stars instead of 5 due to the aforementioned issues.

Felt like I added another 50hp in five minutes. I would highly recommend this mod with a set UDP's.

I received my SCT Programmer around noon 11/1/2012 and installed my maximum horsepower tune. Right then I could tell the power difference. My RPM range went from 5500 to 7000 and my 1/4 mile et went from a 16.9+ to a 16.30 with a 3.8 v-6. With an 75hp nitrous it went from 14.80 to 14.40 and thats after rolling pass the 60ft mark. I highly recommend this to anyone who want better performance and gas milage. Thanks JMS CHIPS & PERFORMANCE and SCT!

I have a 2011 Lincoln MKS ecoboost. I went through "Tuning by James" and was more than pleased with the results. The car is an absolute rocket. His tuning is fantastic. AWD and the tires slip going into second. I have an 02 Mustang GT with some mods and plan on putting a supercharger on it so it can be faster than my daily lol. Thumbs up to James and SCT.
