What is the point of studding first? To do the studs you still need to replace the gaskets and check the heads right? Why not just wait until they go to drop the same amount of money.

Depending on the owner before you I did studs and SCT at the same time. Kid before me ran a 100 hp race tune and smoked the clutch, rear tires, and had to put two new heads on. If it's one or the other studs first. If you have warranty just becareful because some places will look if you had a tune on it and null the warranty.

Not sure on live wire have x3 and it's just as simple as selecting stock. Not sure how in depth fords computers are but at the truck delearship I work at we can go back in ECM history and see if it has has a programmer.

Stud it. If that guy does good work that is stud it. You can get a programmer anytime and this way when you do you have one less thing to worry about. I would much rather do studs when I choose to instead of have to.
