Unread postby decipha » Tue Dec 19, 2017 7:21 am

General rule of thumb for the Catch Codes are:
First digit is the year of design: 7 = EA, 0 = EB1, 1 = EB2, 2 = EB2, 3 = EB2, 4 = EF, 5 = EF, 6 = EL
Second digit is Ford/Tickford: D = Standard Ford, T = Tickford
Third digit is the model: A = 6cyl manual, B = 6 cyl auto, D = Fairmont or Fairlane, E = Gas of some sorts, J = EL Fairmont Ghia, L = South African Export, N = Police
Fouth digit is the ECU revision.

i can post a stock file no problem but to create the xdf takes a bunch of time, i have mzak0 most of the way disassembled just never wrote the logging patch and never put am xdf together at that point it only makes sense to write the tune file

So I’m stuffed? Piggy back system to run it then? From reading it says flashing a different bin to the ecu will stuff it?

Wouldnt be the case of finding the xdf. Would be the case of dumpimg the ecu so i can have the bin then see what i can do with disassembly.
Unless decipha wants to share his files he has to see what i can do with them..

64k for an 04 ecu seems off.

its a 4 bank ecu, so it will be minimum 216k, typically 224k or full size with filler 256k preferred

Yer I thought the file was small as well. Doesn’t matter to much now just going to piggy back with aem spent far to much effort on the ecm
