what do I need to tune 2005 Mustang?

Unread postby i_popov » Thu May 21, 2020 3:49 am

Hi to all! I need help in choosing what hard/software I need to start tuning 2005 GT with installed KB blower. I had good experience with using Tweecer to tune my '95 Mustang with KB and Lentech AODE. My friend bought 2005 Mustang that was originally 4.0, now swapped to 4.6 engine with KB stage 2. The car is poorely tuned, starts only with MAF disconnected. So my friend asked me to help him. He has SCT Livewire TS with the car. I'm not familiar with SCT. Since I live in Russia I can get PCMFlash. What else is needed to start tunining? Can I use SCT programmer or it useless in this situation? Any advice is appreciated!

To use the sct device for tuning you have to buy a licensing dongle for the sct software.

pcmflash is just reading and writing software. You still need software to tune it and the hardware to read and write.

Your best option since you already have the sct device is to use it to datalog. If you have hardware to read and write then get pcmflash.

We can remote tune it. Just fill out the vehicle info sheet and submit it. I'll whip up a startup tune for you and shoot you an xdf file for tunerpro so you can adjust the spark table, commanded fuel, maf and the like if you desire.

If you just want to remote tune it with sct we can do that as well.

Either way your looking $450 to become a premium member.

ok, my friend has a dongle. I downloaded and installed all SCT software. but I am confused - when I run Advantage 3, it gives me very limited choice of what I can change, there are no really important tables, functions and scalars. I don't understand how I can access other tuning parameters...

you have to upgrade your sct account. They do training courses you can take to unlock more stuff.
