    I was a tech at a ford dealer for 20 years I retired in 2016 and got myself a 17 gt 350 for a retirement present to myself. There is no way to program any aftermarket data at the dealer level. The ford performance program were all we were able to do. I wont use any aftermarket programmer on my car. Almost all the vehicles with engine damage had aftermarket programs and the dealers can be charged back up to 5 times the cost of the repair for replacing the motor in a car with a programmer.

    hmmmmm, I have heard that from my Dealer as well - so I wonder how the Whipple program works so well - I am ultra-impressed by the power, reliability, driveability of the blower set up on pump gas.

    Good luck on the Whipple. I was told at Shelby in Las Vegas that the 5.2 FPC has been lightened up for the high rpm's. Something about no external balancer. If you put a SC on the top or a Pro-Charger on the side, it creates stress on the front of the crank. This Constant stress will cause failure after a while. Then all you have is a large block of aluminum setting in your engine bay. They said the best way to make your car faster on is suspension tweeks.
