Super Charger/gauge cluster swap< HELP

i bought a smashed lightning for parts and swaped out the supercharger to my f250 and i swaped out the cluster to use the factory boost gauge and the pats is not letting me start, can any one tell me how to either swap the pats module in the clusters or what i live over 4 hours to a city and deffinitly cant have it towed that far.

you need to use the lightning ecu along with the gauge cluster for the pats to work properly. Your only other option is to get with a lightning turner and have them turn off the pats in the tune

I'm not sure where exactly the ecu is. I want to say passenger side kick panel. And yes the ignition would need to be used as well. But like i said earlier when you go to get tuned just get the pats turned off.

Also while im thinking about it. a n/a 5.4 has a slightly higher compression ratio then a boosted 5.4. Its not much but i would defently make sure the tune is stop on or you will be doing the window mod.

I know you have a 250, but this is what is needed to convert a N/A F150 to run a Lightning S/C. http://www.madenterprise.com/scparts.htm

Mike has it down pat and is very helpful and I bet he wouldn't mind answering any questions you have.
