I used to own a Ford Police Interceptor. One thing that can wake up these cars a bit is a PCM Powertrain Control Module, basically what controls everything about the engine tune. Now, there is several ways you can go with this. They are a ripoff. Do you ever notice in the Winter how you car actually runs better and seems to have more power? Well, this little black box they sell you that hooks up to your engine tricks it into thinking this.
In reality, what you get is horrible gas mileage, and at worst a Check Engine light.
Spark Timing, Ignition Advance, and so many more things he can change to make your Crown Vic feel like it should be. If you feel you should be getting something more from your Crown Vic, whether it be a Police Interceptor or an LX, give him a ring or email him. March 5, - Posted by azchrisf Uncategorized.

Need help tuning Crown Vic, 5 speed swap with 4.
Posts: I have a T and need some help tuning or know someone that can whip up a tune for me. I have a Ford Crown Vic P71 4. Just this past week I installed a TR 5 speed out of 04 Mach 1.
Re: Need help tuning Crown Vic, 5 speed swap with 4. I received a E-mail from Diablo just stating to contact a local dealer well all the local dealers in a mile radius have either went out of business or had nothing but bad things to say about the Diablo and keep telling me to go to a SCT tuner, saying that the SCT has more parameters and that the Diablo program has not been updated in over 12 years!?
Pretty wild having more than a couple shops tell me this? Makes me wonder As for not updated, lol. Why is it were are the only ones that can tune Mustangs currently? Post a copy of the last tune written from the trinity and I'll see if we can change the config settings, and give me your zip code and I'll see who is around that can help you out.
Im not going to name names as I don't want to be held for slander, BUT the one shop I talked to he acted like he had a serious axe to grind with Diablosport and he is one of your vendors listed on your list within 50 miles of me and he flat out told me the "Diablo stuff is outdated and does not have as many parameters to tune with as the SCT and I refuse to make any tunes for one Diablo " Also do you want a copy of my original tune or the 93 octane tune I will be running??
Here is the last tune written, I did modify the tune for the gears but it did not have 4. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Mike, just loaded the tune and reset the parameters and when I start the car it revs to about RPM then idles down and dies, when I try to feather the pedal to keep it running it's like the engine is "loading up" tried it a couple times and still did the same thing, smelled extremely rich, Also the wrench light was still on "limp mode" and I ran it long enough to throw the check engine light I read them and they were all transmission codes, "Torque convertor" "Shift solenoid A-B" and a couple other all pertaining to the automatic transmission so obviously the PCM tune is not regonizing that it is a manual now.
I also noticed when I installed the custom tune it said "Predator" in the file??? I have a Trinity T? I take it does not make a difference to the file? Well the car idled really good around RPM but the "Wrench" light came back on within a matter of seconds, I scanned it and they were all automatic transmission codes Pretty frustrating as all the guys that have had tune's done on their 5 speed swapped Crown Vic's have got them from the guy that said he won't write a diablo tune?????!!
I guess im done here, thanks for what little help you gave me, Pretty sad I cannot get anyone to tune my car with this tuner, looks like what I was told in the beginning was the truth as there are not as many parameters in the Diablo to modify the stock tune.
Guess I will be looking for a SCT tuner.Forums New posts Search forums. Media New media Search media. Resources Latest reviews Search resources. Log in.

Police Interceptor Chip for 4.
1998-2011 Crown Victoria 4.6L SCT X4 with Choice of 5 Star Custom Tunes 7015
Says it came out of a 4. Think it's too good to be true? Anybody know anything about this chip or whatever? Should I give him 50 bucks and let him install it, and see what happens?
More info is appreciated. Carl Founding Member. I believe your buddy is full of it. Even If the police crown vics had superchips in them, the computer code of of the crown vic would have to match your mustang, which wouldn't happen.

Thread Tools Show Printable Version. New to tuning 09 crown vic 4. So I just got a tuner set up from here. I have downloaded my base tune and saved it. I've read a lot about changing a few things with fuel and timing.
So just looking for an idea where to start. I learn quick but finding information about actual tuning isn't near as easy as I thought it would be. Thanks for any help you can give. I'm messing with the fueling. Not sure what some of these parameters are for so I just edited stoich afr and added 1 degree of timing in the borderline knock table at loads at and above.
Changed the up-shift points a few mph but left the down-shifts alone. Comparing the tables I think I'm ok. Pretty sure there is a better way to do the fuel changes but I haven't found it yet. So not much action in the Ford section here or just no interest in 4.
Do you have an specific questions? Tuning for E shouldn't be a big deal as long as the actual fuel system can handle it, you will need to test and blend your own fuel every fill up or run a flex fuel sensor if your planning on pushing the ragged edge at some point, it doesn't all come out of the pump at exactly the same concentrations every time.Everything exceeded our expectations Keep up the good work.
Probably the best vacation we have had and we have traveled to many countries. The extensive information you have on your website was very helpful in deciding how we wanted to approach our vacation and which tour to select. The materials provided and the telephone assistance were both invaluable during our visit. I'm confident our adventure would not have been nearly the success it was without your assistance. Everything went very smoothly and we highly recommend to friends and family that you are the place to go for their Nordic Travel.
Thank you so much. I have already been telling everyone what a great experience we had and sending people your way.
We couldn't have had one of our best and most memorable holidays without you. It was just stressfree and fabulous. We are United Staters, we have been all over country including to Alaska back country twice and we have been to Ireland, England, Wales, ItalyFrance and Greece. I have enjoyed any of them as much as enjoyed Iceland. The whole process from start to finish was very clear, Petra was very helpful and we would happily book another tour with you.
Everything went very well on our tour. There were no issues with bookings and the hotels used were well located and good. We had a wonderful time in Norway thanks to Sara and your company. The service provided by Sara made it a very straight forward holiday.
The tour provided us with an excellent overview of Norway and we departed with very happy memories. I really like that I have an assigned agent for my trip booked with Nordic Visitor.
As our plane arrived late at Copenhagen airport, I didn't see the limousine drive holding a sign with my name and got worried. I sent an email to my agent, and was informed right away that she had called the limousine service and told me the exact location the drive was waiting. I found the driver and started to relax and enjoy my first trip to Scandinavia. The upgrade to the first class train ride from Stockholm to Copenhagen really enhanced the journey.
The detailed itineraries reminded us things to do and suggested attractions to visit. The overall experience with Nordic Visitor is simply awesome. Everything about our trip was perfect. Our guesthouses were exceptional. Maria went above and beyond for us. Thank you so much. Overall the trip was terrific and Hanna specially was exceptional. Everything that was provided was very detailed and top notch. She was also very patient with all our questions and changes that we requested. I would highly recommend Nordic Visitor and Hanna would be our go to person on any future trips.
I have already recommended Nordic Visitor to all my friends, family and colleagues. Our flight departure was delayed an entire day and we were concerned about losing out on our first day activity, airport transportation and accommodation. He went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of, especially after the stress of being a day behind on our ring road trip.
