how much more expensive is the detroit locker and where can i find that one? ive looked but all i can find is the FR one. why is it that u have to rebuild it? just seems dumb for them to make one that has to be rebuilt all the time...every 30,000 miles isnt bad though, i dont even know if ill have the car that much longer so it might be worth it.

The clutch plates wear out.

I don't think they sell direct to consumer. Call 'em up and get #s of distributors, then try a froogle search.

Go back to the beginning. Check out e-bay.

DiabloSport, SCT, Hypertech, are fine.

Alright I checked out that sight and i can only find a locker for a Ford that is for an 8.5" and i thought that was only GT's. Am i right? and u think those shops are good for install. I called a dealer (Rusty Eck Ford) and the guy gave me some estimates -- said probly around $400ish. That was a little higher than i thought but idk. I might call around to those other places and ask what they think theyd do it for. And are the programmers just a performance chip? or are they completely different. the guy at the dealer said he thought he could just do the programming in the computer without me actually buying any parts. is that right? thanks

There is no 8.5" ford -I think that's a chrysler.

Call Detroit Locker. It's a new reissued item, and may not have hit the catalogues yet. Or use tha part number.

yeah, he could do it without the programmer, if he's willing to do it.

chips are different than programmers.
