Are you sure about that?RavenProjecT said:Also, since our year does not support the programming capabilites of the 96-97 EEC, our system must a "chip" plug in, available from SuperChips, Jet, SCT, Diablo or MN-12 Performance EEC-IV/V Tuner; the Hypertech and Superchips "power-programmer" or "micro-tuner" will not work for the 94-95s.
Why is there such an urban myth? Because people post incorrect information, which really is silly when it is certainly not hard on a '94-95 car to take the violin case off and stick a ruler up to the bore of the TB. Bottom line is, for a mildly modified '94-95 4.6 with the stock intake manifold, you don't need anything bigger. Heck I am still running a 65 mm TB on a PI engine, and it is enough.RavenProjecT said:A-Train: so if the stock tb size is in fact 65mm, why is there so much urban myth about the 94-95 stock size being 70? I ask because the latter sentiment has been echoed to me several times by other bird owners, as well as a BBK rep in CA. I asked him about the 70 vs 75mm tb's for the 4.6 and what was recommended for an NA set up; according to the company recommendation for 94-95, 75mm was the way to go and the only available option for those years. He also said the 70mm tb only works on 96-up 4.6s. Is this a "company specific" recomendation then, and if so, why differ from year to year?
Well, the reason I asked you to clarify is because I asked this question before in here. Certain posters that I consider experts say that the 1995 T'bird EEC is flashable because it conforms to OBD-II specs. And from all I've read since I registered here, SCT tuning is far superior to other competitors like Hypertech. The people behind the programming know a lot about the 4.6L mod motor and the cars they come with. The SuperChipsCustom.com Web site also says that the flasher is available for the '94-'95 mn-12. '95 Mustangs, OTOH? That might be a different story.RavenProjecT said:4point6r0x0rz: Yes, my friend has a Hypertech programmer for his mustang, it says it will work on 96-97 birds and so I tried it on my 94 just to check; scanner read "cannot read codes" or some BS to that effect, either way it didn't work. Not as sure about SC Micro Tuner, but can only assume.
RavenProjecT said:Derek: I'm pretty sure it's recomended you program the EEC to know of any changes to MAF or Throttle body; I've never known anyone to swap them out successfully and have the car run optimally without it.
All I can tell you is that 94-95 MN12 EEC is partial OBD II. They came out with preliminary versions of OBD II. 1996-97 MN12's came with real OBD II.4point6r0x0rz said:The people behind the programming know a lot about the 4.6L mod motor and the cars they come with.
