Nice find. This confirms at least some performance shops will have access to be able to tune the 7th gen mustangs.

I expect roush will also have offerings for the s650.

We will have to wait and see if the pcm is locked for aftermarket tuners that don’t have deep connections with ford.

I presume they're going to tune it via piggy-back, since the PCM is locked?
Just saw StangMode's latest YouTube video where his "sources" are telling him that Ford will allow preferred supercharger manufactors (i.e. Whipple, Roush, etc.) to have access to the locked PCM. Which means canned tunes from Ford's select manufactorers. The PCM will be essentially locked with the availabilty of over-the-air updates. So your local tuner will be SOL tuning the S650 until there is a workaround or the locked PCM is cracked.

Here's where he states this starting at 2:31 in this video:

Ford could be heading for very murky legal waters here. If they “approve” certain canned tunes, is that a tacit admission Ford *guarantees*, and therefore warranties them?

Not if they aren't sold via Ford. No. If Ford sold/installed it then that confusion would exist.

I wonder what will happen the first time they push an over-the-air update and forget to exempt the supercharger versions...

I wonder what the response would be if they pushed an over the air update that "de-tuned" everyone's stock 650 from 480 to 440 for "reliability reasons"
