Processor and Vehicle Support - New Strategy Browser.

Hey Guys,

Obviously the big one in 2.1 is included support for a whole raft of new FGEC (Ford Gasoline Engine Calibration) Processors and subsequent vehicle support. FGEC is a vastly different operating system and software layout from the FOA PCM's we have previously supported so it has required a huge amount of engineering to get this far.

The following table outlines vehicle support for 2.1 :

Ford Falcon BA/BF/FG, Territory (Petrol)
 
FORD
2004-2017
We include support for all known petrol and LPG models including supercharged Coyote 5.0 V8, 6 cylinder NA and Turbo and LPG EcoLPi.

 

Mustang - 6th Generation*
 
FORD
2015-2021+
We include support for all known factory models including EcoBoost and V8 variants. Limited support for some performance models.

 

F-150 - 13th Generation*
 
FORD
2015-2020
We include support for all known gasoline models including EcoBoost and V8 variants. No Diesel Support.

 

The following new processors are currently supported (in addition to the FOA Black and Spanish Oaks):

  • TC1791 (Generally: 1st and 2nd Gen Coyotes - PFI only, and 2015-2018  Cyclone PFI 3.5 V6 )
  • TC298 (Generally: 3rd Gen Coyotes PFI/DFI, F150 3.5L Ecoboost DFI, 2.3L Ecoboost DFI Mustang)
  • TC277 (Generally: F-150 3.5L Ecoboost DFI)
  • TC1767 and TC1797 are partially supported for read but editing/writing is not currently supported.



2.1 Strategy Browser.

To improve the sorting of strategies in our database it is now separated into Falcon (FOA) and Tricore (FGEC) lists.

We have attempted to identify strategies, looking for transmission type markers, cylinder counts, capacity calculation, max load, flex fuel support and cylinder air charge values. Where these are not populated its generally due to the parameter data being unavailable due to software version/changes, we will continue to improve our methodology.

You can sort by any of the fields to help identify strategies that might be of interest eg vehicle type can also sorted by S550 (Mustang) P552 (F150) etc.

 

 

Stock File Support 

Much like Falcon you can select any strategy from the list and create a stock file, here is the current best method.

 

Once you have found the strategy you want, select the name in the list - press "CTRL+C"  (copy)

Navigate to Calibration Tools > Create Stock File/Calibration Merge

Create Stock File From Catch Code

In the code box press CTRL+V (paste) and push create

This will recreate the stock file for that strategy code from our servers.

This dialog is universal for both old (FOA/Falcon) and new (FGEC/Tricore) Strategy codes.

 

Happy Tuning!

@Kirby@pcmtec I've been looking at the Tricore Strategy browser & am seeing 2,532 strategies in total....WOW!! but I'm unable to filter/sort by catch code, vehicle type or engine as they are coming up "Blank"

Hey Bill,

Yes there are a lot of tricore strategies. 😆

There are a few things in the pipeline for improving the strategy browser, however I will add this request for the next beta.

Thanks
