So I finally got a response from the Ford Dealership up in Canada, and it was far more professional than the local dealerships. Way more professional. They were able to explain why they couldn’t reflash the ECM to my VIN (and in better detail), and suggested that I acquire a replacement through a remanufacturer as there is no existing stock remaining.

So I put this question to you Oppo: What module remanufacturers do you know of, and which one do you believe has the best reputation for quality? It seems I may also need to pick up a replacement ABS module as well for the car due to the VIN mismatch issue.
