This is a spin off of this conversation:

Jag Heads

This is probably a question for our American Motorsport guy... He knows the internals of the PCM code well enough to tell us if it would be doable.

Although there is a switch on the Taurus EEC for variable cam timing (i.e. the software is there) the hardware is not supported by your EEC's.

And I imagine that if we used a jag ECU, it wouldn't work with anything else in the car...

catch 22.

Thanks!

You can try to research the possibility of the Lincoln LS' vvt heads. Even though Jaguar belongs to Ford, Jag still has its own development teams and enginneers, so the heads might have nothing to do with US Ford's engineering, same with Mazda and the Mazda6 vvt heads.

The LS, S-Type, and Mazda6 all have different variable timing heads, as far as I know. The LS' heads might be the closest match since it is a US Ford car.

Not to mention that the Jag has a triple stage induction, not just the dual runners like the Duratec in the ford/lincoln models. It would be less money, and more of a power upgrade to add a Supercharger and tune the eec acordingly.

mmm... supercharger... hehe.

Makes sence Jason.

Building a SC application is still up in the $5K range, right? I'm trying to keep an eye out for a cheap SC on ebay. I think if you mount the SC on the driver's side of the engine and run a jack shaft to the passanger side, other then tuning, the hard part is done. Beyond that, it's all intake plumbing.

Mmmmm.... those look like SHO snakes....sexy... Oh! What was I talking about?

Oh yeah, that looks like a good meathod. I'm kinda surprised they used a roots blower. I always thought people used Roots blowers when they want to bolt it right to the upper intake manifold, but it looks like this type must feed into a collector which runs like a 3" tube to the intake manifold. I'd have to find out what they're using in terms of the SC itself to find out if there is room for it. Obviously in a Taurus you'd have to relocate the battery for something like that, but maybe you could mount the battery where the airbox would have been?

Dan,
Yes, we do the testing and development of our supercharger kits here in-house, but unfortunately, we only offer parts for Honda/Acura vehicles. Thanks.

Subject: 96-99 Accord V6 SC application Custom?


I was wondering... Did you all design this kit yourself, or are you just marketing it.  The reason I ask is because I'm a member of a Taurus car club and I see the layout for the Accord V6 is very similar to the Taurus.  Aside from requiring a battery relocation, the setup is about the same, perhaps just a different mounting bracket and different size jack shaft.  I think the application would also work on 96+ SVT Contours and V6 Cougars.

In other words... you're not a spoiled rich kid. Get lost or call use when you buy some rice.

Why the hate? They are in the Honda/ Acura business, not the Ford business.

Be happy they even responded to the email, let alone as nicely as they did.

I'm just whining cause like nobody tries to make Ford Performance Parts unless it's for a Mustang or a Truck, but you can find a line of performance products for dern near every Honda / Acura in creation.
