We've got a local Lightning to work with, we just have to make sure we have the trans side of the base tune completely dialed in and then have to get it documented properly. Trying to not rush it out before it's completely dialed in.
Details of all products are on our website (not this forum). If your Lightning still has the E4OD then you're best off to wait a few months as we've got an ECU with trans control coming out for that application.

Looking at installing a PimpXS in my 1988 Lincoln MK7. Stock 302 short block, Crower 15511 cam, Powerheads ported E7 heads, Cobra intake w/65 mm t/b, speed density. 1 1/2" shortys. WOT the car seams fine but has an erratic idle. Also just added a NX 150 horse plate kit so in need a timing retard. The car also has a FB AO3 transmission. C6 internals, AODE wide ratio gearset, manual valve body/ trans brake, 3500 convertor. Will this be a plug and play?

Ok. Right now i am using an 88 Mustang ECU with an ADS chip. No tuneability. I know you dont have a crystal ball, but what real world horsepower gains will i see with the PimpXS ? Also, how does the nitrous tune work? Right now i use an MSD Multi Step Retard ( which i will be removing).
I can't even estimate power gains as there are way too many factors including unknown things I don't know about your current tune.
It's likely you'll gain even more in terms of driveability (which you may not even notice is all that bad until after it's improved). I'm not saying you won't gain any power, I'm just saying there is much more at stake than just overall power and it's the stuff that's not at wide open throttle that is used the most.
If it's currently using a Mustang ECU then it's certainly plug and play.

how you find where stinger is with e40d trans control for 93-95 5.8l lightning, I think lightnings2 and stinger owner were posting about it, that was hyped on nloc forum about being out in 1/1/2019, and I dont see it on your web site, hard to navigate site
There were some delays along the way but it's getting real close now. We're targeting Feb 25th-28th as the release date. We've got a list of people who for sure want one that we will be notifying for purchase about a week before we're ready to ship them to give those first customers a chance to get their orders in.
