Re: Anyone have their Ecoboost tuned ?

Correct. IIRC, The SCT tuner pulled the "strategy code" that was needed, once I plugged it into the ODB-II port. I remember having my older CVPI's tuned. You sent that code to the tuner at the time (Blue Oval Chips?) and they would send you a rom back. You had to clean off a connector on the PCM and...

Re: Anyone have their Ecoboost tuned ?

In my previous life, I drove CVPI's from 1998 until my last one (a 2005). I used Brad (ajpturbo) to tune my 2014 Ecoboost PI - can't recommend him enough, I bought an X4 SCT from him as well. I'm not kidding when I say It's a whole new beast. See minor mods below.

I always take a screen cap so I can restore the original settings if they don't work out.

Re: Headlight switch automatic lights upgrade PI sedan

It wasn't in the spreadsheet, I looked for that address that Joh150413 posted earlier in the thread for his 2016, found it in the BCM module with FordScan made the change and tested to see if it worked on my 2014 - hint: it did :mrgreen:

Let us know if it works for you!

Re: Headlight switch automatic lights upgrade PI sedan

For reference on my 2014 PI, the ONLY change I made was to 726-12-01 from 0000 000F to 0101 000C (and the check bit at the end as indicated by AsBuiltExplorer). This change was in the BCM module, not in the IPC module. I didn't change anything in the 720 (IPC) range.

Hope this helps.

Re: Headlight switch automatic lights upgrade PI sedan

@Joh150413; Thanks for that info - I can verify that it works on my 2014 PI as well. I already had the sensor and I did notice that although I had the standard manual switch originally, my ETIS as built data dump showed my build included the auto headlamp feature... OK, here's the solution, at least...

Wait - What? This is a real question? Of course you have to drive it like you stole it, I thought that was the whole point. :mrgreen:

Re: Anyone tuning their PI?

I have a 2014 PI Ecoboost. After a 93 tune, it's really a whole new beast. I used Brad (AJPTurbo), he was great to work with. See sig for my current mods.

tirerack has seemed pretty weak for the Taurus PI, but simpletire.com has about 20 tire options for the 18 inch PI OEM size.

Re: Expected MPG? 2014 PI Sedan

I have a 2014 PI 3.5 Ecoboost with 112k, an AJPturbo 93 tune. I'm getting between 22 and 23 on the highway. Not sure about city, 95% of my driving is highway.

Re: 2013 PI Sedan civilian mod Vs. Cop mode

+1 mope. Most departments only pull their radio equipment and lighting and remove or in some way deface their "logos" on the outside. Though I've seen many sent to auction still containing almost all equipment "fully loaded", minus only the radios. I would highly discount what you are being told by ...

Re: Aftermarket HID kit for halogen projectors.

Hey tk, I've been thinking about ordering this kit - While I certainly had way better output with the +30 Volsa HIR2 bulbs I have been using for the last couple of years - they are definitely getting getting dimmer now and rather than replace them again, I'm interested in going HID. When you install...

Re: Share your Police Interceptor sedan pics!

These were separate incidents :mrgreen: Second pic was from a tree that literally fell on my car while I was enroute to work, at 70mph on the interstate early on morning. It fell across my car just at the bottom of the windshield. Looks better now though!

Defective Rear Window Defroster

Here's a weird one. 45 minute drive to work yesterday morning. Parked at my office, and when exiting I smelled something that smelled similar to burnt brakes. Popped the hood and checked out the wheels and engine area. Nothing out of the ordinary, no smell detected outside the car, strongest was dri...

Re: Screen burn in - fix or replace?

Are you certain that's actually burned in? Mine does this when I put the key in before I start the engine... it also "moves around". When I start it turns on and I don't see any burn in effects or anything. Like someone said, probably Microsoft's lame attempt at a screen saver.

Yeah - I hate this. I also used to have my left leg bent and up just under the seat on my vic. That hump is a PITA - that and the much more limited visibility. :-\
