And i guess postage all up would be 200? How much and where would i get new shims? Ford?


dunno how much postage will be, but it will be 200 + postage. Have you got a pick a part or a self serve wrecker near you? if you do just go there and take them out of the rocker gear and put them in your pocket.

If you're going to a pick a part for your shims, you should be able to find a bbm. Or on gumtree.

You won't need an el ecu if your getting a j3 tune.
