To keep the Xcal2 or Not?

Hey guys, I am trading in my '04 GT on Friday for a '06 F250. Should I keep my SCT Xcal2 that I have already for my Mustang (revert the stang back to stock) or buy a new programmer/chip?

Save the money...revert the stang to stock and get the XCal2 retuned for the Stroke.

And definitely consider getting gauges when you get the truck.

Oh yes....it will have gauges. I like gauges, lots and lots of gauges.
Just wasn't sure if a Edge or something else is better suited for these things.

Cool, then save a couple of bucks and just retune the XCal2 and then be moving right along.

Preciate it. After 4 years of mastering everything about a Mustang, now I have to start all over again.

what ever you do don't go with the edge if you don't want to mess up your tranny

Thanks for the warm welcome. I only have a camera phone pic when I went for the test spin, I will have others upon delivery.
