basket case dropped on my lap

Anything about Ford EEC tuning. TwEECer and Moates questions dominate, but there's some SCT and OBD-II knowledge too.

basket case dropped on my lap

Post by ashford » Sat Mar 31, 2018 10:49 pm

its been awhile since i touched be or the quarterhorse. but a basket case car dropped on me the other day.
it is a 96 gt with manual, twin turbo, seimens #80 and a cop conversion.
eec is a cdan4? catch code GGL2.
long story short the guy bought it with a blown engine, rebuilt it and couldn't get it to start. i get ahold of it to get it running and the j3 port is empty, great not even a starting point :twisted: .

i soldered in a new battery in my qh( i have a bad one) and started to look for stuff to tune it with.
what would be the quickest setup to just get the car into a running situation so i don't have to push it in and out of the shop every weekend?
be with free def, eectuner or tuner pro. i plan on getting sailer bobs def eventually to dial it in but need something quick and dirty for tomorrow

btw i have be2010 on an old laptop

Core Tuning shows the GGL2 as CDAN3, not CDAN4. I also did not see GGL2 listed in the Ford Stratagies listing that i have, but 96 Mustangs are CDAN3. One reprieve is that the hardware code is the same from what i can tell, so reflashing it or installing a chip with one of the CDAN4 bins would be your best bet. If you have BE i would highly recommend getting Sailorbob's def for CDAN4, its about as complete as you can get and would be the cheapest route to go. The other option would be to contact Adam at Core Tuning and get access to their database. Its a nice package, but on the costly side. 1222azz
