Ready to buy, couple questions

Post by chriswells78 » Tue Nov 06, 2007 2:04 pm

I'm almost sold on a Special Forces tuner package thanks to JuggaloX's great video but I have a few questions about the capabilities of the product;

Can I turn off functions of the OBD2 system such as the EGR in an off highway vehicle?

Does the system actually calibrate the MAF to a new injector size or must you have an MAF pre-calibrated to the injectors being used?


by the way, I'm looking to tune a 96 Ford Explorer 5.0 AWD with additions consisting of:

Top end-FRPP E cam, Crane push rods, FRPP 1.6 Roller Rockrs,FRPP valve springs/retainers, Crane lifters and FRPP valve guides
Heads/Header-Stock GT40P Heads from a 98 Mountaineer with custom headers w/2.5" collector.
Upper intake and fuel-Stock Cobra style intake custom ported and polished, 30# FRPP injectors, Edelbrock 75mm TB, custom intake tube, 90mm Lightning MAF, K&N cone (planning on deleting EGR)
Exhaust-Full custom dual exhaust w cat's removed and glass packs added
Ignition-Stock Explorer DIS with MSD coil packs, Aroura 9mm wires and Platinum plugs.

I'm ready to drop the motor in this weekend, I'll need to tune it soon after. Thanks for your answers.

all of your mods can easily be accomodated. You would simply specify the lightning meter and 30lb injectors in your tune and it will make everything work properly.... You can also fine-tune your mixture after the tune is produced as well.
