Hi all,

For the purposes of some quick data collection, I've been trying to find which PID's to use for MAP and TPS in the falcon as the ones that come with Torque don't appear to work.

Anyway, I found the following in fordmods from lukeyson to help me along:

220900 is MAP pressure sensor, Volts, 2 Bytes, Div 1024
220917 and 220918 are the 2 Throttle Position Sensors, Volts, 2 Bytes, Div 1024

Now adding those to get a voltage reading listing from those sensors is easy enough.. but I want the actual pressure or positional value, not the voltage output of the sensor.. would that formula be listed in any ford documentation anywhere?

I with the TPS i could just close, then half, then fully open the throttle and measure the output voltage but not sure how I'd get the MAP scale correct.. the info must be somewhere.

Anyone got any suggestions? If I manage to get this all together, I will package it up into a falcon plugin for the torque app with all the PIDS I get together.

A vacuum gauge provides a direct measurement of relative manifold pressure, so just a matter of reversing the scale and converting the units from inches of Hg to get absolute pressure.
