    no they should not work......ford computers are equipped with adaptive learning......basically the car will strive for a perfect 14.64 air fuel ratio at ANY cost. the safc will fork for maybe 5 mins before the computer catches up and writes over your adjustments. do the programable wideband trick.

    Honestly, the two best routes.

    Tweecer: (What somedude is using)

    $300, $500 if you want real-time feedback via laptop

    -Requires a computer, laptop is nice but not necessary.
    -Full control of ECU fuel tables, and everything from shift points, to tranny line pressure, secondary activation, and just about anything you would ever need to touch, and lot you would never need to.

    Custom burned chip (Aka. LPM)

    -Again full ECU control, but it has to be sent in to be burned.
    -Bit cheaper


    SAFC will not work for the most part. As the computer will learn the changes. Which is general accross all ford EEC-IV fuel systems, ddrop tried that on his probe with no luck.

    you can swap them to twin Tb's actually, the only concern with twin turbo's and twin TB's is the maf. not a huge deal though.
