Hi all, I`ve kind of ran into a brick wall at the momment with the ecu and its build in security, Welcome to the world of Ford P.A.Tsbanghead Normaly the chip in the key communicates with the dash clocks this in turn tells the ecu and we all go for a drive down the roadwoohoo, As i don`t have the keys and clocks i got a guy to disable the security, brilliant till you turn off the power and the ecu generates a new code from a few billon its got spare!!!censored So everytings working except there`s no injector pulse, To sort this its
option 1: replace the lot with a standalone ecu/remap and return fuel system
option 2: breakers yard for clocks keys and a blast on Fords I.D.S to recode it all
option 3: handheld scan tool for some OBD tunning.

Option 3: i`m liking this week due to the fact i can solve the issue with the EGR/EVAP and rear O2 sensor and P.A.Ts but it does involve rebuilding the fuel map, downside its gotta come from the states!

For the interested http://www.deltaforcetuning.com/Commando-p/co-5000...

But i have been playing with toy number 2 while i make up my mindbiggrin

Summers over! holidays finished! So back to it with a trip to the breakers yard to rob a Mustang of it`s security bits and bobs

Key + Transmitter + Clocks = £300! I finally decided on this option simply because it was the cheapest if it works

I'm sick of my project too - he's right on all counts. No-one is going to top this in a hurry thumbup

This one should edge out over 500bhp/tonne - nice work and beautifully executed

It never set out to be the mother of all projects! but it`s funny how these things just snowball! My first thoughts were "yeah that will fit" biglaugh A quick once over with a tape measure, a bit of cutting here and there, then DA DAA! standard looking Chimaera with a bit more power hehe

After a late night ITS RUNNINGbounce eight wires and ten minutes on the Ford IDS to reprogramme the ecu to the clocks & keys, To simple to belive it would work really

Wahay ! congratulations

i know what you mean about snowballing... mine started as "should be able to get the claimed 320 out of it if I spend £3k." then "hang on, if £3k = 40bhp and a 'charger at £6k = 120bhp, then the 'charger is better value" then after ordering the charger "hang on, do I trust the old engine to handle the charger - better rebuild it" etc. etc. etc.

Anyway - this is your thread, I'm mighty impressed by what you've achieved, fantastic.
