Ok, based on Nikolas's reply in this thread, it looks like we will get something at some point.

Let's do a poll to show Diablo how interested we are. Maybe it will get here quicker if there is enough incentive for them?

Diablo chips usually run around 150-200 I think. This thing will probably top out at 350 do to its tuneability features. It'll be well worth it.

Nikolas says $400, but well worth it IMO! You'll pay nearly that much for APEX'i S-AFC.

Bring it on!!!

Check out Nik's link to PDQ performance. The programmer features are NICE!

If it is under $500 and it exhibits a dyno proven increase, I am on board.

Depends on the price really, because I was looking at SHM's MAFterburner, which is already available for $300 ($360 for the plus model) and it's already dyno proven. Check out what it did for a Focus ZX3:

I'd be on board once the "experts" here verify the benefits.

This item works similar to the APExi by fooling the ECU. A little cheaper, yes, and they already have experience with the 3.0L Duratec. I think I'd rather take the new chip burn of the Predator iff (and only if) the Predator allows for adjusting of A/F in relatively small increments like the APEX and MAFterburner. If they do release the Predator, it'll be dyno proven.

There are now 40 'yea's on there. But I find in internet polls, alot of people are willing to say they will buy it, but once it comes time to ante up the cashola, many go running for the hills.

40x$400 = 16000. Probably well worth it for them to get the ball rolling provided they actually have a car. Not to mention the 6 has only been on the market only 6 months, demand can only increase.

Edit your post and get rid of the URL that 84FordMan posted. Whenever you "quote" a message with the URL as the last item, it'll muddlefuck the forums. Chalk it up to some shitty software.
