1996 F150 5.8L was OBD2 and had a distributor/TFI ignition system.
What strategy and EEC did they use? And is it EEC-IV or EEC-V?

Re: 460 efi project - need some advice

I have ZERO experience with Ford SD systems. However from what people say about them, they are a pain to deal with...enough so that people routinely convert from SD to MAF to escape them. I wish I had the experience of using them to talk intelligently about what it is, exactly, that makes them so ba...

Re: using a 4.6 ecu and harness on a 351w?

From your previous thread, the sticking point isn't running a 4.6L or 5.0L EEC on the 351w. It's that you didn't want to go the EDIS (coil pack) route and thus are trying to maintain a TFI distributor on the 351w while also running an OBD-II compliant EEC. That's the killer combination that I'm not ...

Re: 460 efi project - need some advice

I don't have a specific suggestion which way to go on this one, but I do have a question that's related to your current setup. It's 1996, yet it's EEC-IV? Is it OBD-II? Just looking at pictures on the Internet, it appears the 1996 7.5L was TFI-ignition. I'm asking because another person has a questi...

Re: swapping a 351w into an e36, what ecu should i use?

That depends on your EEC's capabilities. The only fuel-only ECMs I'm aware of are specialty units like those intended to control CNG injectors. Those usually work, in tandem, with the car's factory ECM. In fact, the factory ECM "believes" it is controlling the injectors, but it isn't. Instead, it's ...

Re: swapping a 351w into an e36, what ecu should i use?

Maintaining the OBD-II pushes you to an EEC-V which was introduced about the same (1996) time OBD-II became a requirement. There were a few early adopters like the 95 Rangers which were EEC-V and OBD-II. That's the only early adopter I know of. It's going to be important that you get some info about...

It all depends on what else you are trying to accomplish. Here are the things to know before making such a selection: Will you be tuning this yourself or having it tuned?

When you say your WB is off, what do you mean? Are you saying it is reporting values that are off from what your LAMBSEs are commanding?

Re: Lambse Too Rich accross the board

How low did you take the curve? The stock 19lb EV1 injector curve in GUFx is WAY too high for most EV6 injectors. I had to lower my curve to where the high voltages were VERY near 0. The other option to raise idle LAMBSEs is to increase the low slope. But now you are talking about coordinating the h...

Re: Lambse Too Rich accross the board

If I had to guess, I'd say it's running a stock Injector Offset curve. That would be my answer if this were GUFx. I assume CBAZA has one too. Anyway, try subtracting all points in that curve WAY down and see what happens. Try to preserve the curve shape, just subtract all points by the same value. J...

So I 1/2 right. It wasn't the injectors at fault...but it wasn't ignition either as I was betting it would be.

That's the difference between a project and a money-maker. Hobby's don't really follow the time-is-money philosophy. So if time is a factor, then you got the right idea. Get what you know is going to fix the problem even if it's costs a bit more.

In that case, you could replace the tube with one that'd register more air. But the Pro M route is probably the better one.
