Loc: Who wants to know...

I just want the speed gov removed and harder shifts than what I have, And I may get the Marauder air box and tube so I was thinking of a 04 PI computer. Would this messup my digial-odo? how can it be installed?

Any help whould be appreciated

And I thought about the chip but I don't want to put in 93 octane

For the Marauder airbox and 80mm MAF you NEED chip; an 04 computer WOULD NOT work in your '98.

Get Superchips for harder shifts, and speed limiter issue. And/or a chip custom burned for your needs. Try dennis Reinhart.

If I can get a custom burned chip, could I get it so I don't have to run 93 octane?

That is the biggest factor to me is the gas. BTW why won't the 04 computer work on my 98? Is the box different or would I have to get the PI heads for it to run correctly?

You can get a chip burned to whatever specifications you want. If you do a search, there is a LOT of information on doing the airbox switch and a LOT of information on different chips and so forth. Maybe that would help.

Thats what I plan on doing, I don't have the money for the parts let alone a custom chip right now So it will be some time until I get this.

Besides upgrading my exhaust to SLP's Loudmouth setup is more Important than the airbox, 80mm maf, and a chip

You have to contact the company that you want to get the chip from and tell them you want it run on 87 octane, then they would burn a chip that changes your timing to run on 87 octane.

Basicly, just contact the company, like Reinhart(http://www.reinhartautomotive.com/performancechips.ivnu), and tell him what you want from the chip.

SLP makes exhaust for Crown Vics?

you can have a chip burned at reinharts. You wont have to change your octane. Just tell him you want to change your shift points. You could also install a good shift kit.

If he just wants firmer shifts and speed limiter increase, P71 computer would be a MUCH CHEAPER option.

Marauder airbox kit wouldnt work, he'd need a chip.

I dont know if a P71 computer is compatible with digidash.

They make exhaust for the Mustangs now. Shouldn't really have any trouble, I asked the guys there over the phone if they would be able to do it said should only need some pipe extensions. If it doesn't work I'll ask if they could custom bend me a exhaust for my car

It doesn't remove the speed limited, tho, does it?? Maybe one of those doohickies that plugs into the OBD2 port would help with that. .

You aught to search on driveshft before removing the speed limiter.

The speed it limited to protect the driveshaft and if you don't do anthing there, you may qualify for the olympics.
