CDAN4 Tunerpro

Unread postby ZCHondaCRX91 » Sat Jun 10, 2017 9:35 am

We are putting a 3.8 in an older mustang chassis, and we need some help figuring out our method of tuning. Right now we have a CDAN4 PCM (from 1997 Mustang 3.8 Auto). We can't run the factory PCM because of the changes seen below. I've tuned a lot of other cars before, but this is my first Ford EFI project. I've used Tunerpro in the past, but from what I read using the CDAN4 strategy with Tunerpro is not ideal. I really don't need to do a lot of tuning at the moment I just want to get it up and running without any CEL. Is there any advice on using Tunerpro for our setup, or should I just consider Binary Editor instead?

Thank you.

cdan4 support with tunepro is minimal at best, I hadn't went through it nor have I put the logging patch code in there since no one has requested it

best bet is to start from a tbird 3.8 bin as pats is already disabled and you can simply disable the rear hegos and egr, p/s and a/c require no changes, evap is going to require some code looking to disable correctly

you'll have to toss in your injector info, simplify spark and toss in a typical spark table for your setup

what trans are you using?

SPP5 is the catch code for a 96/97 tbird 3.8L V6 CDAN4, it comes with no PATS so that's ideal to start from
