And Finally the best possible way of modifying your car's tuning:

Crack the standard ECU !

Your car's standard ecu has had millions and millions worth of development money spent on it, the fuel and spark maps for the standard engine, cold start, emissions, hot/cold running, limp home modes, electronic throttle control has been setup to be just right. Why throw all that out if you don't have to?

The BA ECU is so far advanced of ANY aftermarket ecu it's not funny. And you have already paid for it!

CAPA have a tuner box for BA's and are coming out with one for the EF/EL series. It allows you to access some/all??? of the factory tables and only adjust what you want. And these ecu's are really powerfull.

Changed injectors? only two numbers to change to adjust all the fueling requirements. Or go through all the tables. The damn thing has tables for low altitude, high altitude, low coolant temp, high coolant temp. And that's just the start.

Auto trans not quick enough? Don't worry about a "Shiftkit" - change the original programming.

Like some more throttle response - Tune the electronic throttle curve.

The same with traction control, fan operation, VCT, timing etc etc.

All the benefits of the factory system and you can just change what you want to suit your mods.

Best of all you can return your vehicle to stock easily and use the programmer in your next car.

This is why I use Delco on many cars that I do.

The factory stuff is awesome !

I get unbelievable economy and great power without doing any changes.

All just from doing a good tune first time.

Does anyone know more about the CAPA tuner box for the EF /EL? I'd really like to know if anyone has one of these, and can comment on one compared to a unichip?

The EF/EL one is not released yet. However CAPA gave me January 06 or earlier as the date.

Expected price is $768

Just have to wait.

Okay, that gives me time to save up.
Now all I have to do is resist the urge to buy other expensive s**t for my car/cars.
This is gonna be hard...

f**k 770 thats steep

how good is the ford computer wat size fuel table does it have 8x8 or 12x12 if its got a decent table it will be cool, and also wat pressure can the standard map sensor go to and will they allow you to control everything, i wish they could give us a spec list to let us no what it can do so we can no if its worth it or to just continue with our ms kits?

I would reckon $770 is cheap, not steep, for a tuner that can access and modify a factory ECU.
Oh the possibilities...

I would imagine that the factory ecu, even one 10 years old will be so far in front of aftermarket stuff it's not funny. And whatever it has will be more than sufficient to tune your car - it was designed for it! Also you get the benefit of 1000's of hours of factory tuning free! Insead of tuning from scratch with your MS.

I had a peek inside the software for a BA ecu, there are over 40 3D tables and 100 setup parameters just for the Auto transmisssion. -Compare that to a $3500 Motec M800 with 1 table.
Obviously the M800 is more biased for engine stuff but you get the point.

Spork, you are getting me more and more excited about this. I wish you would stop! :D

don't hold ur breathe on a flash tuner for the EF/EL.
i'd expect one for AU's way before EF/EL, damn ford for making so many changes.

With all due respect Spork, the V8 supercars run Motec. If the Ford factory ECU was so great, wouldn't they run that?

You seem to be missing the point of an after market ECU. From what I've read of your posts, it's like you're saying that someone with 40 sets of suspension all with different camber angles is better that one set with an adjustable camber/caster setup.

You also say that you benefit from 000's of hours of Ford tuning by using the stock ECU. Please explain to me why the stock EEC-V pisses fuel out the exhaust @ WOT.

A properly tuned engine, with millions spent on tuning combined with 000's of man hours, does not usually run @ 10:1 AFR @ WOT.

Also, ANY ECU that uses a wideband oxy sensor is going to be better than ANY ECU that uses a narrowband oxy sensor.

Yeah but who of us can afford to run a full MoTec setup? Not me.
Who can afford the engineering hassles with a standalone aftermarket ECU? Not me.
And secondly, who would rather have a play with a working, safe, base tune, that I DIDN'T have to pay for? I'll put my hand up for that one.
