  1. UPDATE: As built data is being collected here, thanks to Mick for starting the group, great to see everyone contributing as it helps us all out. https://www.facebook.com/groups/australianforscanusersgroup Original Post: It is becoming increasingly common for customers to convert NA Falcons to Turbo. When the entire drive train and all modules are swapped this is relatively easy, the problem occurs when customers add a turbo to an NA engine swapping the PCM only, leaving the NA ABS module. Previously the advice was to source a turbo ABS module from the same vehicle, or attempt to reprogram it with Ford IDS which is fairly tricky. Recently there have been updates to Forscan which allow editing the ABS module as built data. As such you can change a non turbo ABS module to a turbo ABS module. One customer has recently tested this on a Mk1 NA FG automatic ZF 6 speed which had a turbo PCM, TCM installed but the NA ABS module was left in the car. To reprogram the ABS module we installed Forscan with an extended functionality license (Very cheap and a great product!) and saved the NA ABS module as built data as a backup. The customer then connected to a Mk1 FG Turbo ZF 6 speed and downloaded the as built data. The turbo as built data was then uploaded to the NA conversion vehicle and voila, no more ABS fault. Please be aware if this is done wrong you may be left with a non functional ABS system. Process we followed is below: Download Forscan here: https://forscan.org/download.html Then connect to the vehicle. Select Configuration and Programming and select the ABS module. Now "Save All" the as-built data. Follow the same steps on the turbo vehicle. Now "Load All" and "Write All" the as built file from the turbo vehicle on the converted NA vehicle and restore the data. If you have any issues you can always restore your backup. If you have a manual BF or an auto Mk1 FG you can use the supplied files below AT YOUR OWN RISK. Now please ensure you test these changes in a safe environment on an engine dyno if possible. Also test your ABS still functions correctly afterwards in a safe environment. There is no guarantees with this process however it appears to work on the FG Mk1 Series of vehicles which has been tested. As built data can be downloaded below: FG Mk1 ZF6 Turbo as built FG-Mk1-XR6T-ZF6_Turbo_ABS.abt FG Mk1 ZF6 NA as built FG-Mk1-NA-ZF6_ABS.abt BF Mk2 6 Speed Manual Turbo as built BF 6 Speed Manual ABS.abt Anyone who has the following and can please read and upload your as built files from your ABS modules it would be muchly appreciated. Please note the model (eg ute, sedan, g6 etc). This will greatly assist others if you can share this information.

  2. the fgs goes straight to cylinder injector cut for zf, so with a b series you really want the car to request other tq reductions, then spark cut. so you can find the sweet spot for the burble with the other cuts - then use spark cut if it needs more. but i dont think this situation is reversable so if you disable spark cut to get the injector cut straight away, you will also likely induce etc cut

  3. haha no. adds to much ducking around to the limited amount of testing time i get. I can tell you that the last lot of settings ive had in the car have been in there a couple of weeks and just the other day on a 2-3rd change it did a perfect fg style shift burble - but i haven't been able to recreate it since, nor was i data lodging at the time so i have no idea what it did. that was with spark cut at .8 and other cuts at .5 and enleanment at .78. i think he trick is getting the car doing a rich enleanment and then injector cuts, but with the b series there is no consistent way to get it in that sweet spot every time.
