  1. I don’t know of any way for the ZF to do that, but personally I’ve never worked with those (as I’ve got the TR6060). Roland will have a better idea if anything, or if anyone else in the thread has worked with the FG autos and wishes to share their setup may help you. My car has a bit of a drivability issue itself in the throttle hanging a lot on decel even though I only touched 3 tables (overlap tables) 😂 Might need to datalog load and commanded overlap etc
  2. Oh okay - for that one the FG has changed the ID of it: you're looking for auF0097 (VCT Exhaust Cam Overlap Angle)
  3. I've got a MK1 and using Pro too and can see it; if you click View up the top and under PCM see if Professional is ticked there?
  4. I would think that half of it would be cost savings - but also with the smarter PCM used in the FG knock detection I would expect is much better than back in the days of the BA. The main reason for the change to thicker rods originally was due to backfires bending the rods, and it does appear less likely in the EcoLPI (although I never have worked with LPG myself) Considering the brutal testing Ford put the engines through (48 or 72 continuous hours of interchanging between max power and max torque - can’t remember exact numbers) they certainly weren’t worried about reliability!
  5. BarraDrifter is correct here - I used to work with the parts system used at dealers (Microcat Live) and can confirm that this is the case - you can call any Ford Dealer and they can confirm the rod used. I've attached a file I created to reduce confusion back when I had full time access to the parts system. Hopefully that helps answer that question! Engine differences.xlsx

    Hey guys

    I don’t believe anyone has posted any tune with that already done. You’d have to use the compare function to change over quite a bit of the tune as there’s a lot different (Almost everything to be honest as new cam profile, injectors, compression, and intake manifold) between the BA and Fg. Plus I don’t know about independent VCT in the BA PCM whether that’ll even work. Probably not?
  7. Well after a day of mucking around with my car I’m certain the auto PCMs do not have the input for the clutch switch internally connected. FG 5sp auto PCM in a manual FG just doesn’t detect the switch at all. Launch control still works (the car will rev to 3650 from memory) and just sit there as long as the car isn’t moving. Not sure Barra.AU what will happen in your case if it is the other way around.. also maybe Roland meant use a relay to invert the signal to the PCM?
  8. Cheers Roland - I personally don’t have the workshop edition so wouldn’t get to use that function - whether or not it’s useful I suppose comes down to how many possible conversions any workshop would be doing to ever use this functionality (and whether or not it truely works!)
  9. Apparently I can't edit the one above again: another thing to note is auF2193 does not exist in the FGmk2 onward or the SZ territory. I went and found a couple of N/A and Turbo Territory IDs and sure enough; there's no reference of a 4WD 0x80 bit. All fall into the bits I've posted above. Quite mysterious!
  10. So I was doing some comparisons of plenty of PCMs (19 different ones in fact!) and ended up with this bit breakdown for those two config words: The only car I couldn't get was a N/A Territory (I'll likely go on carsales/pickles salvage to get an ID) to check if bit 7 of auF2193 was in fact used. (as mentioned with the 0x88? above) I couldn't verify the 4WD vs AWD part of auF2193 either; as there is no true 4WD anyway!
  11. Did some looking at the proper ford wiring diagrams, and indeed the FG mk2 and FGX both use the switch on B04; however the Ba-FG1 are all definitely on B05; so the document you’ve got is correct but should say from 2012 onward, not 2008! As for a strategy to try instead, I gather you are already using HAAT0V6 and have licensed it? (BA F6 manual) - I have another calibration of HAAT3VC (BA manual, pretty certain it’s an F6 as it runs even higher boost levels then HAAT0V6) you can get it using the create stock file wizard. The only issue is for licensing: I’d suggest wait for Roland or
  12. FG is actually still pin b5 for the switch, b4 in an FG is the start enable pin which goes to the starter relay in the power distribution box. From the sounds of it; I can only think either: a) the PCM is either faulty or if it was an auto pcm then for some odd reason the pin is not hooked up internally (It is so unlikely though to be that! Doesn’t require a solenoid or anything); or b) the strategy is for some reason always ignoring the clutch switch. whether or not it’s possible to try another manual strategy to cancel anything being software related? (don’t start the car, just fla
  13. I agree that I’ve never heard of it as a problem either - It would be unlikely that something could have gone wrong in regards to the switch as I’ve even tested my FG one and it’s just straight to ground... it’s just very odd that even with the manual strategy it always puts the PCM in the clutch not depressed state!
  14. Is it possible that if it was originally an auto pcm flashed to manual that the pin isn't connected internally? Someone else with a BA PCM flashed to manual would need to chime in though
  15. I should have read!! No issues there then so: I gather your switch you’ve added is directly off the PCM to ground (i.e not running off another loom) as everyone else mentioned they are a very simple ground switch to activate, nothing can really go wrong there. So when you don’t have the launch control settings in place does the motor rev freely and not cap at the set launch rpm?
  16. Are you running the auto or manual calibration? I would expect if it's using the auto calibration the actual state of the CES is ignored. If there was a switch to enable / disable the switch, I'd be looking under System Switches, but I cannot see anything in the FG/FG2 calibration (but it might be different on the BA calibration)
  17. Disabling PATS won’t change the cluster so you’re all good there; just the ICC will not function (I believe it will just say security code error)
  18. Awesome that you're able to reproduce the issue; good to know it'll all be fixed!! Sounds good about the disabling colouring too - Thanks again!
  19. I'm only getting the black cells when the program means to draw the pink changes (literally just opening the file and half the tables have black); but cannot explain why some of the pink cells work and the others do not. I've attached my current tec file I've been working on as it theoretically should allow you to see straight away (It's the file I was talking to Darryl about moving the N/A stuff over to the turbo map therefore there are a lot of changes in a lot of tables! - It's also unlicensed etc so far since my PCM is still not able to be flashed yet). I did try saving the file but it con
  20. Just curious if it's possible to have an option in the settings to turn off the colour highlighting for cells changed? When looking at a few tables now after I used compare view to change some tables I now end up with my tables looking like this with colour missing and or being largely pink! Thanks!

    Had a crack at porting all the N/A stuff over to the HAEE4 calibration (from HAEE3) and it looks like I should be all set for when this is all to go together now (got access to IDS so that's all going to be a breeze!) - thanks again for your assistance on this one! Now this is some great news!! You guys never stop delivering - great work as usual!

    Thanks for your reply Darryl! Interesting that the PCM I have may have the inputs connected internally for boosted applications - one day I'll find out as the plan is to sort out setting up the whole turbo kit on this engine. That makes sense now about why the different OSIDs I've tried all are varying differences! Bit easier to grasp now. When it comes to all the OSIDs I'm aware of for the FG MK1 these are all I've found; (I had been using the old Ford IDS calibration CD list from 2012); however all I know of for HAEE4 and HAEE5 are of PCM type APS-234 (which means they are all
  23. So I'm about to put a FG Mk1 N/A motor into my car - and was trying to determine which catchcode / OSID to end up using as the PCM I got with the motor is an APS-232 variant from a 5sp automatic FG (annoyingly there's no catchcode to determine the OSID on it and I'm still to finish the wiring so I can flash the ECU; but from what I can gather being an 8R29 code on the sticker it'll likely run HAEDJ or HAEDH); and since I'll be running a manual transmission instead of the automatic (which runs an APS-231 ecu) I've gotten a relatively decent selection of calibrations (and I'm aware it isn't even
  24. Appears I was too slow to edit my post; I missed the part stating I am not certain on which one the sprint uses; from other posts before it would seem as they kept the same injectors from the turbo models, and not the F6 injectors.
  25. Hi Whiteford, I originally heard they used the XR6 turbo internals from an interview with Justin Capicchiano (Sprint project manager); I can't specifically find which one it was but here's a link which slightly touches on the subject of the changes: https://www.motoring.com.au/is-fords-falcon-xr-sprint-australias-quickest-car-101758/ (note they have for some reason rounded the comp ratio up for both FPV & XR6T). Also on which injectors the sprint uses - it's should use the same as all FG F6's (8R29-9F593-CA) whereas all FG/FG-X turbos use BG-9F593-B.
