Anyone on here dealt with any OBD1 mustang tuning?

I am finding the twEECer to be the only unit that is reasonably priced to work with... and I am only shying away from having a chip burnt as the local guy who works with superchips seems to feel my 5.0 is a waste of time and I don't think he is going to put much effort into it (so I will have a wasted 550 bucks!)

So I figured I would ask on here Very Happy

The only thing I have played with is a SpeedBrain. It came in the Mustang I bought for my wife, and I took it out and put everything mostly back to stock. I didn't really like the SpeedBrain, it had a few quirks. I'm sort of in the same boat as you though, I have some mods planned that really will require some custom tuning and I really hate to be locked into a "chip", much rather have something I can change. If you have a 94 or 95 Mustang, I still have the SpeedBrain if you want to make an offer - any offer - I have no use for it. Keep in mind, the company went out of business and there is basically no support that I can find for it. However if you just wanted to play with something, it might be worth it to you. From what I have read, the TwEECer does sound like a pretty good deal for the level of mods I have planned. Clay

Ahh I see... well if I can find enough info to get an idea how to toy with it I would certainly be interested, as I have a 95 GT Very Happy

Check out Tuner Pro. It's a free tuning package. I haven't heard anything about it and I found it when looking to convert my boat to EFI. They say it supports EECIV ford BIN files. You'll need a PROM burner but I'd look into Pocket ROMulator.

There is so much to be learned on this stuff, and I cant seem to wrap my head around a lot of it...

Where is the basic info this is all based off of? Like, knowing what all of these numbers mean about this type of port and that type of port...

I really want to learn this stuff because the "tuners" around here wont do a damn thing with the auto trans, and most dont even want to tune OBD1, as OBD2 pays more for nearly no work... Find a similar setup on the database and fine-tune it if they even do that...

EECIV is going to be my second language soon

Not sure what you mean about different ports.

I attached an Accel training manual for their old fuel injection. It's a good read but may not be applicable to your application. Hope it's helpful.

Well, it was a few of the vendor sites that dont particularly sort their parts by application... All I really need to be concerned about is the EECIV stuff but they had it all mixed in with GM stuff and import parts etc etc... Hard to navigate site confused me for a minute basically

Thanks for attaching that Very Happy I like to read most everything I can get my hands on... Whether it directly applies to what I am doing or not, there is bound to be something useful in there!

Well, a lot has been learned in a week since getting a chip burner and my LM-2 but I think I need to learn how to better isolate whats going on so I can make more effective changes if that makes sense... I will likely get it on the dyno when money allows but that may be a little while.

The Moates stuff is how I went for hardware, and now tuning software is my issue- a lot of it sucks to work with!

I did, however, find that removing the smog pump and egr are incredibly minor changes- just changing 2 settings in the chip and done!

TunerPro is downloading as I type this- going to see how it works for me Very Happy
