Work truck project

Unread postby adfosterm3 » Sun Nov 19, 2017 5:25 pm

Well my work truck died. Replaces it with an 01 sport trac and love it so far.

Eventually will 5L swap it in spring and was curious if anyone has tuned the 4L ecu or has or knows of a file that will work for the 5L swap.... maybe re pin the connector and run fgfb2 ecu and strategy? Run fgfv2 strategy on 01 explorer ecu?

Figured I would see what ideas anyone has or experiences.

i like the sport tracs, for a while i was trying to find one for my mother but settled on a 5L explorer instead, she loves the 5L gt40 & 4r70w setup as she was pretty acquainted since she used to beat around in my 4r70w swapped supercoupe for a couple years

its no big deal, ive tuned quite a few of them, in fact just in my family we had 3 of the 4L explorers at one time, 96, 99, and 03

the v6 ecu cannot run a v8 as its missing those extra 2 injector drivers

for the 5L you can either use that ecu that comes with it or upgrade to an 03/04 luxury sedan ecu and use RZASA, I cant recall if the 4L or 3L uses an scp VS, i believe the 3L does as i vividly recall reprogramming a 4L ecu for a gent who swapped in the 4L from a 3L on a ranger/explorer and his VSS didnt output on the cluster

so u should be good

I figured I wouldnt be able to reuse the v6 ecu. Would have to run a fgfb2 ecu.

I found a 2000 Eddie bauer 5L explorer local for cheap...half tempted to grab it as a parts truck.

what would it take to tune the existing 5L ecu? Is there an existing xdf for it? Would a rzas0 or fgfb2 ecu be a pretty plug and play deal with configuration or would it require rewiring?

I have 96-08 ford service manual and workshop manual cd and the wiring diagrams sections dont want to seem to load so I can't cross reference it.

just to break out a def for it, i did some limited stuff on it when i used to daily my explorer for a little bit there, its the backup truck to tote my trailer around in case my harley goes down, my brothers actually been daily driving it for the past 7 months now ever since i got the marauder, i actaully tested the universal adx code on the explorer first as that was the vehicle i was driving at the time, it woujldn't take much for me to break out a def for it but it would be pretty time consuming to go through it and find everything, RZASA is definitely the preferred choice for any eec-v, its easy enough to snatch an ecu from an 03/04 luxury sedan and use it
