Steeda Adaptive Performance Calibration

This system sounds awesome. It costs $399 for the programmer and it adapts the Spanish Oak processor in the 05-08 Stang. It automatically changes timing when you change octane fuel to give you the most HP for that type of fuel. If you add a supercharger it will change to make the most HP. It comes with a flash tool that will let you adjust tire size and gear ratio like the other programmers. The other programmers disable and falsify sensors into different modes of operation. The Steeda system is integrated into the processor. The only drawback I can see is that you have to send them your ECM for now. I am sure they will change that soon. The article is in Mustang Monthly May 08 pg. 87.

my question is this.....how often do you change octane in fuel? i mean i always run high test in my car....91 here in canada. so is it worth it.....cause its not good to swap between octanes frequently unless you run race fuel....

hmmmm, if it is ever adapting that is a good investment, but does it keep it tuned to safe parameters or maxed out?

Makes me wish they had it for the Fox bodies.

Since it is from a major mustang builder I think they would keep it safe. I am going to read into it more when I get the chance. I think it would be the ultimate programmer if it delivers what they claim. If I had a Stang with the Spanish Oak I would sure as heck give it a try. Steeda has been around for a while.
