A parameters check Is the thing performed at ford for correct running.
And yes the pedals especially on XR range of falcons are too bloody close to the accelerator pedal

hehe parameters check, bit different to that sambo. the pcm (manual pcm to be put into the car) needs to be wiped then reprogrammed with a "tear tag". the pcm i ended up using on kens ba had rtv writen on it form the wreakers, but i'm not sure rtv's ever came out in manual form, they may have but i cant recall ever seeing 1. it was a lot of messing around on the program side as the wreakers initially sent an auto pcm, we tried for ages to program it with a manual program, but it will not happen. the 2nd pcm they sent was auto again the d***head, least we knew it that time and didnt stuff about with it. once they sent a manual pcm it was fairly simple to do, i was just unsure along the way as to weather it would work, since no1 had done it before. still dont know if the pcm that worked was from a ute or a sedan, but in any case the car runs. i dont think it really matters if it is ute or sedan, as the pcm only runs the engine, its the BEM that controlls the body side of things.
