Hey Anthony,
Roush has reased the Tune for 2021. Your shop has bad info. My Phase II is dealer installed. The Tune was released early last week. I picked up my car Thursday.

I would go somewhere else.

Good luck.
I called roush directly after that call a d the guy told me, YES the tune ls/calibration for both manual and auto have been released, but Rpush is waiting on seeing if the software are compatible w 2021s and if there is any issues.. he said that 2021 should be good to go by end of month. Whatever that meant..
I also told him that forum members had roush s.c. installed on there cars and have no issues. He said that diff geographical dealer locations may have installed chargers without waiting.
Now, JDM and Roush both stated this, my dealer ALL AMAERICAN in Old bridge stated they were good to go.. I'm gonna wait a month or so, and dont believe it trust the local dealers. They are just money hungry and could care less about customer cars.
The roush guy from the phone convo stated watch the website and check to see when the phase 2 s.c. states they are available for 2021s, not only 2020... as well as signing up for newsletter to see when they are truly available

Hey Dude,
You gotta be be careful speaking with Roush. They gave me very conflicting info as my car sat on dealer lot unable to move or start. One guy told me no tune until June.

The dealer owner kept in contact with someone high up in the food chain. It was supposed to be released week of April 22nd. There was a bug in the Tune that had to be fixed for the A10. The manual passed QC and was released.

They told my guy the tune would be uploaded to the server by Tuesday @ 6pm. It was. They installed the Tune and it works great. The owner took the car for a ride as well as the mechanic. They pronounced it fit to be picked up.

I couldn't be happier. This car rocks. The power of this car is astonishing. Chicks hang out car windows waving at me as they pass. Hehe. 😁

Look for another dealer. Find an authorized Roush Ford dealer. Keep looking.

I am pretty sure you would have to run a line from the supercharger to the gauge.

Great idea. I'll check ebay. So, I would just unplug 1 gauge and pulg in the new one? That simple?

Some of it depends on our own curiosity. I monitor iat2 very closely when I drag race because that is something I can control. Knock retard and spark advance are useful if you add octane or get fuel that is not up to par.

The nGauge was a good device but no longer made or supported. Lots of guys have those mounted in the A/C vent.
Here's mine

This is the port on the supercharger that the boost gauge gets its information from.

I copied this pic from another post.




What does that mean 'run a line'?

Just curious: For those with boost gauges or those getting them, what do you do with that info or how do you use it?

Consistency and ability to watch vacuum/boost if needed.
