Oh, and I have found both BOC and ADTR to be EXCELLENT in terms of service and high-quality product offerings.

Thanks for the info.

Just to clarify. I have an 04 LX Sport, So I have HPP(?) and the only part of MZT I lack is the tune. Do I have this right?

No, your non-CVPI 04 does not have the 80mm MAF or revised airbox.

On an 04 'civvy' panther, you want the Marauder unit. The MAF is plug and play, you just need the tune.

O.K. I misled myself as both my cars use the same airfilter and the airboxes look the same.

whats the horsepower gain with the MZT?

Very nice! Answered my questions! Well, all but two:
1. Let's say I wanted to get the MZT stuff through ADTR. If I understand correctly, I'll just need the following:
--Mercury Marauder factory airbox assembly - $199.99
--2004 PI Zip Tube - $41.99
--and a tune.
So it should set me back around $250, not including the tune?

2. If I wanted to invest in one of those XCalibrator 2s, would I still need the tune, or could that be programmed?

Thanks in advance!

You will need the tune to run the Marauder 80mm MAF

The PI ziptube is not required, but it's easier to install over the larger MAF than the stock tube.

The xCal2 includes a pre-loaded custom tune from the vendor, have it programmed for your configuration (ie 80mm MM MAF)
Some vendors include 1 tune, some 2. I recommend http://www.blueovalchips.com for your xcal2.

The xcals you see on eBay have 'canned' tunes, and are not recommended.

Yeah, that's where I was looking to get it. The more sponsors I support, the better!
And that's what I thought. I figured a tune could be programmed into one of those. I just needed confirmation.

Anyway, thanks again guys. I'm looking forward to getting this done soon.

Just buy your MZT parts all from BOC to save on shipping.

So is the MZT the latest Lincoln car? Did Lincoln just rebadge a Focus?
