    I have been using it for a bit over two weeks now.
    I LIKE IT !!!
    The added torque does make the car a little squirrelly however.
    It does provide an excellent test for the ESC light.

    How squirrelly? I noticed the standard ST setup is a little tail-happy.

    It does provide an excellent test for the ESC light. Ha ha.

    The rear I can handle, a little drifting is just fine.
    The front wants to break loose easier.
    I will just have to enhance the next set of tires.

    Like D1JL said, the added torque makes you have to fight the wheel a little bit and the traction control gets a workout.
    Will definately step up to a bigger/stickier tire next round. Likely 215/40 or if we can sqeeze a 225 in there.

    Does anyone know if installing/using this product breachs Ford's factory warranty in any way ?
    I am definitely intrested in it , but do not want to jeapordise the car's warranty.
    Thanks in advance.

    You would be altering the ECU program so I would think, yes.
    You would just reflash back to stock before you make any claim.

    The important question should be is if reverted to stock flash after a engine defect, will your ford service department be able to know you have altered the ecu?

    That's a good question for Cobb.

    When the Accessport is properly uninstalled using the Uninstall option from the main menu, the ECU is reverted exactly back to stock. In our experience, the dealership is not able to tell if the ECU has been flashed. However, with that said, the AP is not designed to go around any kind of warranty coverage and there may be diagnostics at a much higher level we are unaware of. At the end of the day, it really comes down to how your local dealer handles modifications to the car: some don't mind a few mods and others don't like any.
