Explorer EFI Mass Buy Feeler.

EDIT: I no longer get the killer pricing for tuning these, so the mass buy price is a thing of the past. For current pricing and options please see this thread. http://classicbroncos.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=257251
The rest of this thread is full of decent tech, so don't let it stop you from reading farther.




I see that Explorer 5.0 swaps are becoming very popular, but most people seem to use the Fox Mustang electronics. While this works well, it adds to the cost because you then have to source the Mustang electronics and distributor, which are becoming pricey and harder to find. Add to that the cost of an aftermarket transmission controller if you want to run the 4R70W.


I aim to change all of that by offering an A-Ford-able solution to everyone that has access to a donor Explorer vehicle, and even those that don’t.


The package that I will be offering includes re-working your current Explorer harness, and re-flashing your current Explorer PCM to meet your needs. I will work with each of you individually to build a truly custom harness to fit your rig. This will include a small fuse box and the needed relays to make this a stand-alone system. I can also offer the harness and PCM to those that don’t have them at a very reasonable price as they become available.



Payment: I really prefer a Postal money order. However, I realize that some of you may be building rigs on credit cards. My only option for credit cards is Paypal at the moment. While a really don’t like Paypal, I will accept if for those of you that must use it.


I think that about covers the needed info. If you are interested, please post up. If you have general questions, please ask them here. If you have very specific questions that will only apply to your setup feel free to PM me.

Thanks guys.

Edited to add...

The most commonly asked question is how much of the firewall harness is needed. This picture should give you an idea, try your best to send me everything in yellow.

Mark if you want in on the mass buy for just the PCM flash I'll cut you a little break.

As for the year of harness and PCM, I can do any year, so long as the harness and PCM match.

Re: Explorer EFI Mass Buy Feeler.

Does the flash take care of pats in the later harness and eliminate codes?

I am also interested in just getting a ECM done. I have the donor engine and harness and plan to make the harness myself. Just need to get an ECM and have it flashed.

Yes, it removes PATS completely. As far as codes, the few that I've done already I've had success in removing all trans and emissions codes with one exception. When using an enhanced Ford specific scan tool and running the KOEO or KOER test it will toss a code for not being in park while running the test. This is only for people that are not running the 4R70W. This will not affect a generic OBD2 scan. I also leave all the important codes in place so you do get a CEL if something is wrong.

If there is a lot of interest in just the PCM flash I'll gladly do a mass buy just for that.

Re: Explorer EFI Mass Buy Feeler.

We can run a 4R70W trans with no issues?

Correct. In fact it's actually easier if you do. That means less changes to the wiring harness and less to change inside the PCM.

I am currently shopping for a donor engine for the front serpentine setup, along with the SEFI. What are the overall years I am looking for, and are there some years with better components? I am intending this for my trail rig 351W.

This sucks. I got rid of two wiring harnesses and pcm's a while back. Thought it would be to much work to use them.

Subscribed. I just picked up a 1996 Explorer for a donor. No specific plans for it right off but the price was to good to refuse.

Kurt,

The only changes I know of through the years (96-01) are injector size, egr type, and cam sensor type. If you're running a 351 I would try and get a pre-99, just because of the larger injectors.

How built is the 351? If it's staying stock-ish I can make the needed changes for you in the tune. If this thing has a wicked cam or anything you would be better off trying to find a local tuner to handle it. I could probably get you close just knowing every mod, but if a change needed to be made you would have to ship it back to me. Also if it's a wild build I would want data logs to be able to make the changes. By the time you spend the money on that and shipping a time or two it wouldn't save you any time or money.

I do have a couple of early PCM's on hand if someone needs them.

Re: Explorer EFI Mass Buy Feeler.

What about the ignition 'trigger'(dont know the right part name) for the 351? I think all the 5.8 truck motors came with a dizzy. And the one in the 5.0 wouldn't fit the 351. Just something I was thinking about after reading about this.
