MZAK0 V10 6.8L strategy available?

Unread postby vintagespeed » Wed Oct 16, 2019 7:52 pm

hi guys, i've been looking all over for the MZAK0 strat for my MTC-322 hardware FDA4 box code ECM. i've got a '70 F100 with this box in it, running a TritonV10 and while everything runs well off the stock tune, it's currently an auto-trans ECM and i have a Tremec TR3650 behind it, which works great other than a few little annoying auto-trans issues that i'd like to adjust in the ECM. specifically tip-out fueling and startup rev speed.

i have a QH and have installed that in the ECM and tried to pull the .bin out of it, but i can't seem to get anywhere with that.. my PC talks to the QH fine, i can pull the .bin i wrote to the QH to a file, but i'm not getting anywhere with the QH flashing/reading the ECM. and every time the QH is in the ECM it's a no-start, no pump condition.

i'm guessing i need the proper .def, .xdf and .adx files for TunerPro RT to do it's thing? help pls.

at this point i'm thinking of going standalone and having to re-wire much of what's already in-place, but i'd rather use the QH for now and go SA later on when i toss some Singapore Psyclones on it. :D

can ya help a newb out? #v10bumpside on IG if you're curious.

Simply read the tune out the ecu and write it to the qh and it should run just like it does with the qh removed. You can use amy of the 4 bank def files to write the qh. Just dont change anything.

make sure u follow the instructions in the getting started write up

There is no publicly available mzak0 xdf its only for premium members. A guy with a buggy recently inquired and I wrote him a base tune but hadn't heard from him again. If u want it I can post it.

premium membership is no problem if this setup will do what i need to do.

i'd like to take a look at it yes. i'd also like a 5.4 stock .bin if that's available for comparison?

thanks for your help.

gave it another try and had same no start, no pump issue.

connected to QH, pulled fresh .bin from buffer & saved, loaded saved .bin into TPRT, uploaded to QH and verified successfully, everything green no errors, enabled emulation, no start.

i have another 4 bank ECM, i'll try same with that box ZJZ1 MTC-101. (getting worried about bricking my primary running ECM... :shock: )

and wouldn't ya know, the QH works on the ZJZ1, however idle is all over the place. i will try to confirm the pinouts between the '01 FDA4 MTC-322 and the '99 ZJZ1 MTC-101 are the same and go from there.

you can't enable emulation since there is none for that strategy.

if you can't read the bin and write it to the qh and have it run same as before either your j3 port is not cleaned (you didn't get all the plastic off the contacts) or your not pulling the file correctly.

post the file you read from the ecu and i'll take a look

there is no way to compare since you won't have an xdf file to view the files only write them. If you want to become a premium member I can get you everything you need.

ok, so i got it to start & idle with the QH installed on the FDA4. you may not believe it, but the problem is that it will not start with the USB cable connected to my laptop..? once i unplug the USB it starts on first click and idles as before while the QH is installed.

if i plug the USB back in and reconnect to the QH while the truck is running, i get an idle surge but otherwise seems normal. :?:

Get an optoisolator for the QH from Moates. That should fix your usb issues.
