I'm waiting for the wiring and service books to arrive, but maybe someone here knows already...
I have a 1999 SVT Cobra 4.6 DOHC 4v engine (heads, raised CR, intake mods) in a special body track car. I have just aquired a 2005 4.6 SOHC 3v engine with Kenne and Bell blower (9psi) and PCM from a totalled car. It will be a 150bhp upgrade if I can swap the engine in. Anyone done this before (I did try searching)? One question about the drive by wire gas pedal, does it go straight to the main PCM, or is there a body control module that I need as well? As the PCM can be reflashed, I'm guessing the ability is out there to turn off limp in functions or add sims kits. I don't expect it will be as easy to just fit the 2005 gas pedal / sensor, and some additional wiring? The other option is to try to convert to cable thottle, but that's still going to require PCM mods and figuring stuff out. I don't have an issue with using the electronic throttle control, if it can be retro fitted, and being track car I don't have to meet emmissions.
Ford actually sells a kit for the 5.0 engines to be put in other cars and it comes with the gas pedal. You'll probably need to find a gas pedal from an 05-09 or some other ford that uses the drive by wire.
Thanks, I have no access to any info like that in UK, my local Ford dealership can't even get me a spark plug or any part, even if I have the part number! I even called around race shops in the past, and no one does much with the Modular over here.
Thanks again, the gas pedal is the easy part, its the bit in between I need to know more about, if it goes via a BCM. With a lot of modern modules the moment you remove them, they are set to go into limp-in mode, and modules need to be coded to the VIN etc. With no dealership able to supply parts, I'm sure not going to get a module coded! I'm assuming it can be done via the OBD port, since there are hand held devices able to reflash the PCM, with that in mind it must be possible to 'talk' to areas with in the PCM and overide (delete) a limp-in trigger. I don't expect the dash could work either, the 2005 car is 'all new design' over a 2000 spec mustang?
