    I know i want it over the other ford computer, but id feel comfortable buying a new one, not a reman, so is their some aftermarket company that makes one the surely outperforms all?

    I think you're stuck with a reman. I don't think anyone makes a aftermarket stock ecu replacement. There are some good piggybacks and standalones, but I'm not sure if thats what you need or not?

    The ignition system will generate a spark without the computer. If you have no spark, you have other problems.

    Computers seldom fail, usually it is a sensor, wiring or actuator that has failed.
    There are no new FORD OEM computers that are compatible with your car. Everything you will be able to get that is a direct substitute for your current computer will be a used unit.
