want to learn about EDIS conversions

Post by Kingfish999 » Wed Jun 02, 2021 10:38 pm

i currently have a 90 F250 that i swapped Explorer 5.0 engine, trans, and EFI into and i love it. i also love the EDIS setup and im curious about potentially converting my other 2 trucks to use wasted spark EDIS-8. i want to learn more about it. i understand the Explorer EEC does not have a standalone EDIS-8 module and i would probably need one. apparently i cannot use the Explorer EEC to control an E4OD trans so swapping the EEC is not an option for either trucks.

i know i would need a 36-1 crank trigger and a cam syncro. i plan on running Explorer 5.0 accessories and rebalanced harmonic balancer that has the crank trigger. otherwise the 96 balancers i have already have a 4-point wheel for misfire detection, i could find a way to make or swap a 36-1 wheel on them. someone on a previous post mentioned how to combine 2 cam syncros to work on a 351w

i have a 96 Bronco with a 408 im building to replace my blown 418. its using stock EEC-V with a Quarterhorse. it uses a normal ICM with distributor. is it possible to use a standalone EDIS-8 module in-place of the ICM and tune the EEC for it?

i also have a offroad only truck. it is currently also useing EEC-V with a Quarterhorse but it will eventually need to be swapped to carb. in a discussion on another forum, someone mentioned to me using MegaJolt Lite Jr with an EDIS-8 module. so it will adjust timing based on integrated MAP sensor. otherwise runing fixed base timing could be an option

my knowledge is limited however so looking for info, advice, ideas
96 Bronco 351w E4OD MAF
TIN3 (AGANF) w/ Quarterhorse
425W (4.100 stroke .060 bore 351W), AFR 185, TFS-R intake, 42lb injector, Comp Cam 35-514-8
