    contacted diablosport....they are saying the files in the cpu are different for an 04 and are not loaded in their database and thus not in the tuner.

    read it on other sites. can be used on the 3.9 only as a code reader, no tuning. bummer...just wasted my money.

    sold it and got a superchips flashpaq for it that was supposed to be supported for the 3.9. turns out, ours has different files in it so the tuner did not even recognize it was a ford. called superchips and they downloaded files from the car and are having their engineers do their thing. we shall see....the saga continues for a 3.9 cpu.

    Thanx! "ole Murph loves to hang around my house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    today, they called and said can you go out to your car and hook up the superchips tuner. said ok.. went out, hooked it up and it worked like I expected it to. asked the guy on the phone, do you have wireless ability to connect to this thing. he said no. have no idea how they fixed it with it sitting in the box in my son's room. anyhow, the tune is in the car. he just left to go to the gym so will see what he says when he gets back.

    I will say this....I cannot say how great the customer service has been with Superchips. they were fantastic. the guy yesterday alluded to something about Superchips now owning Diablosport or the other way around, but the two are now together somehow.

    It wont matter. Throw good gas mileage idea out the window along with good tread rear tires. Both are always consumed.
