4.0: 30 & 04 Superchip

Is there any difference between the 4.0 put in the 03 and 04 Rangers?
I ask because they make a superchip for the 2004 model, but I'm not sure if it'll work on the 03's. Also, does anyone out there have one and might be able to give me a "consumer report".

I agree.. I talked to some people when looking for parts for my ranger ('04 4.0 sohc) and they said the only difference is the location of the MAF.

Yeah, but they don't make them for the 03's that I know of. And they arent that expensive, about 400 for the microtuner.

The maf is different ( in part, not in theory/function though ). I believe your best bet is to contact the 4.0God ( Doug ) at bamachips. Very credible source and he might have what your looking for as well.

Doug makes custom programs for ford vehicles using superchips tuners.

He is in LA. right now with the recovery efforts.

If you send him an email now he will reply shortly after he gets back. His customer service is second to none.

cool, that would be nice if Ford DID make them for the 4.0, but I've had a look at the bamachips and I'm very interested in that. Particularly the switch chip.
