Anyone know where to find the ECU and code for a Superchip on a '02 Explorer, XLS w/4.0 SOHC and 5 speed? I'm having trouble locating it. There is a vertically mounted interface on the passanger side firewall with 3 bolts, each bolt holds a seperate pigtail in the interface but there is no code to be found, and even if there were, there is no ECU there to put a chip into. :confused:

TIA

That's has to be an out of date document on the Superchip website. I traded in a Superchipped 2000 Explorer XLS for my new 2002.

Wonder why these companies don't update their website. It might take all of 10 minutes. I can understand printed catalogs.

Sorry I passed on old data,

Yeah I believe they have CHips for the 2001-2002 sports and I am pretty sure about that because I remember e-mailing the guy when that group buy was going on..

Post 1000 :D :rolleyes:

No problem about the old data Al.

New info for anyone interested; I just called Superchip and was basically told they don't know either! :rolleyes:

The guy I spoke to said to find the ECU, he couldn't tell me where to find it, and take it out and see if there is a port on it. If there is a port then it's chippable if not then it isn't! Gee, thanks for nothing Superchip tech support! :mad:

Maybe my next step will be to call a Ford dealer service dept and at least see if they can tell me WHERE the ECU is!

Later....

Soup'd... check out the group purchases forum, there was a superchip group purchase going on. it gives a number for Mike Troyer, he is the man when it comes to chips. His specialty is F-150's but he really seemed to knwo Explorers too.

Mike is an awesome guy with a helluva lot of knowledge and superior customer service. I recently bought my third chip from him. I believe his e-mail is mtroyer@compuserve.net. I highly recommend him.

Thanks for trying to help but that email addy is no good. I tried to send an email and it was rejected, 'no known recipient, address does not exist'. Maybe it is an aol.com address now that AOL and Compuserve merged?

I know he has aother e-mail also, its "performance" something, but I couldn't find it. Try compuserve.com.

You can try calling him. He is very informative over the phone.
