          Noob question I'm sure, but is this the only PCM tuning device for the Contours ?

            I don't think so. As far as PCM flash devices I think that Diablosport sells one as well. Nothing cheaper though.
            You can also buy superchips chips, sct chips, diablosport chips, etc.

              I realize I've gotten here late, but while this thread is here...

              I don't have a great desire for optimum power, but I like to learn & tinker with things. If I get an XCal2 can I upload the stock tune to the XCal2 and make changes to that file myself then flash the PCM with my modified tune??

                You'd need the pro racer package I believe to make any significant changes. I understand you wanting to tinker but it's cheaper to get just the xcal2 and tune from warmonger.

                  With SIMPLY the XCAL2 and the software on your laptop (NOT PRP) you can make some minor adjustments, like +5/-5% to timing (though this is ACROSS THE BOARD, so if you are borderline pinging at 5000+rpm, and you are MORE than safe at 2500rpm, adding +4% may set you off at 5000+rpm, still...) and a few more.

                    Actually with the .ll3 tune file you can adjust timing much more that that over three different ranges, low, med, high rpms.
                    This should be set by the tuner before the file is saved. I could set it to +10, -20 degrees if I wanted to but that would be not safe if the customer accidentally changed something.

                    Same thing for air fuel, limiters, etc.

                          Yes, if you want something for an OBD-I, youll need a chip.

                              so if I buy a used Xcal for a stang, it will work for my 3l swap after a mediocre tune?
