I know that I was looking at a ford scan tool $2000. I want to do it myself I want to buy a maco or snap on scan tool that can do the same properties as a ford scan tool just a lot cheaper. I just need help on selecting a scan tool that can do the right job. I was going to tow it to my class and ask the ford asset to reprogram my truck but the semester is over so I got to wait again but i don't feel like waiting i want to finish this over winter brake.

Any reputable SCT Tuner can send you a custom chip or handheld device with a tune to disable PATS. Here is a thread where I explained how I, personally, remove PATS in the tune.

chip suggestions?
