There has been a lot of talk about the S650 being more locked down and not being able to be tuned (think of dodge where you need to physically modify the pcm to be able to tune or buy an unlocked one).

A new video from stangmode essentially confirms that only certain Ford partners (Whipple and others) will be able to make tunes for the S650 and that the pcm will be locked down to other tuners. You will be forced to go with a Ford-approved aftermarket company to get a tune and any power adders. He said as of now he only knows of supercharger manufacturers that will be making kits for the S650.

He did state that it is subject to change and that he has some more info to share in an upcoming video.

Hopefully, the engineers leave a nice easy bypass in place for everyone who likes to have anything other than a plain supercharger kit. It sucks that Ford promotes racing and modifying their cars, but then you can't even modify it how you would like.

Stangmode suck but this is the new norm. Way too many brand are worried about hackers and they’re also worried the epa might wack them for easy tuning. So the days on getting into the Ecu for cheap and easy are over. I’m sure it’ll get hacked into at some point but then you’re going to be stuck with whatever dash update ya got. I’d like to see roush and frpp step up, offer a real tuning option but i digress
