What's available for the 2.3L PZEV Duratec when it comes to ECU? Maybe the SCT chips??? Im just a lil confused on if its made for that engine too. Would anyone reccomend doing that if available? Does it matter if its done before things like intake and exaust?

Our ECU cannot be chipped. They can only be flashed. The aftermarket company you deal with will take a tune, upload it to a flasher, and you use that to update your ECU with the latest tune. Now that the SCT X-cal2 is out, you will even be able to datalog.

Datalogging is when you use a computer to record information about what happens during a dyno run. A datalogger keeps records of the readings from all the engine's sensors. A skilled tuner can use that information to make the engine run better and more powerfully. It can also show you a problem long before you'll see the outside effects.
