Do I need another edit after Ford ECU software change

I have my Typhoon booked in for the new clutch and the computer software upgrade. Since my car already has a secondary computer with a edit, I have heard the boost points and ignition timing are altered with this Fpv upgrade.I would therefore assume I will have to re edit my cars secondary computer settings.Currently the car has 280 RWKW

Re: Do I need another edit after Ford ECU software change

My edit computer has a dial and if I wind it back to minimum it takes out all the extra settings except the -30 percent on the injectors.As they flow 130 percent of the standard injectors.I would believe Ford can do the ECU upgrade and I can then leave it on minimum as above until I get it re edited back to where it was.I don't want to take this stuff out (injectors, computer etc) and put it back again if it is not required.Any comments from MyF6 as we have the same edit?

All you need to do is turn the boost down to the lowest setting and take out the boost controller cable. The dealer will not know its there and they will update the ECU with the new program. When you get your car back just plug the boost controller module back in and wind it all the way up again.

An edit is a very different thing to the piggyback computers we have fitted. I am getting my new clutch fitted, and about 5 other long term issues sorted next week. I'll let you know if I notice a difference with the new program loaded. To be honest I really don't care if they load the new program given that my car has 275rwkw now and its only a relatively mild tune with std cat and exhaust, so far
