Well well well, I ordered a SCT X3 Tuner for my 03 Escape this evening from Torrie @ http://fastpartsnetwork.com He answered every email promptly and was very helpful. Now hopefully I will be able to get some power back, firm up the transmission, and correct the speedometer. Well I guess I'll have to wait and see...

What programs did you go with? You should be happy with your order. Dont forget to maxamize the SCT X3, find your nearest dyno tuner and advid tuner tech to set up the E.

Osker,
I didn't specify, but I am pretty sure he will hook it up. I am thinking he will give me 3 different tunes. Can't wait to get it and plug it in, I am still in shock that I convinced the wife. :shock:

I see that you have some aftermarket wheels and tires there. Did the X3 fix the tranny from searching for gears? That right now is the biggest PITA for me and I hope this thing will fix it. :doh:

After market rims, that I do. I have never had a tranny issues but the SCT X3 did indeed tighten it up my shift points, that is the best way to put it.

I have read several great reviews.... So far are you happy with your SCT X3? :tumble:

By the way nice Escape you got there :D

Quick Update: I flashed my wifes Escape last night and took it for a test drive. All I have to say is OMG what a difference. Throttle response, transmission, power, and anything else I missed. Well worth the money spent. I currently have to set to 87 performance. Next is to check the gas mileage. Thanks y'all :thumb:

Any results for the mileage? I have been seriously thinking about getting one if only to firm the shifts and gain some MPG's. After that last bad snow storm I can't justify getting a car to gain mileage when I wouldn't be able to get out to work or hunt or anywhere else.

There is a program for mileage, but in that your Escape is greatly reduced in power.
