    Thanks for your help. I have tried to research this issue for some time, but I now have the time to spend on this ECU issue. So you say my OIL2 is the calibration code and the language of the ECU understand is AHACA. If I purchase a QH/Tweecer then I should be able to talk to the ECU because they understand AHACA, but it would not show the original calibration since it does not know OIL2. Am I close to understanding this or am I way off base. Any help would be appreciated. The last thing I want to do is to purchase something that will not help. Thanks again, Mark [email protected]

    Hey. Appreciate the help. Hope you dont mind me asking you on a PM. if 3.55 give me that. How about 3.20? Thats what the guys telling me? It sounds like the RPMS are quite high when im at 55. Also Ill get the wheel size when im by the truck tom. Im actually going to have to hook a wire from the altenator static port to get some type of reading.

    I have a few question about the 460 MAF conversion that I was hoping you could answer.
    I want to do the MAF conversion and need to know what parts to get. I am planning on buying an a9l computer, a piggy back harness from RJM and a C&L 80 mm MAF.....what I can't determine is wether I need to mess with the distributor or any other sensors besides the wide band O2 and MAF? I also Have read that some are re-pinning the ECU to work with the proper firing order and others use the QH and reprogram the ECU, which is better? I will also be adding a tp38 turbo and will purchase the QH a short time after I do the swap. I am very mechanically inclined and have no problems with wiring or fabrication. I'm lost because there is so much info and I don't want to waste excess money or time. After reading through many hours of forums I have found you to have the most knowledge and experience to what my goals are.

    Thanks for your time_____ Matt

    Ask me anything you want. Some basics:

    Stock 96 EFI 460 running about 7 PSI. 60 lb/hr injectors.
    Stock early 7.3 PSD Van Turbo (has larger exhaust housing than truck turbo)
    95 F-150 California 5.0 MAF Computer
    90MM Lightning MAF (blow through setup)
    E-Bay intercooler (fit pretty good in the front end with just a little trimming of the black plastic grille support)
    Porsche/Bosche plastic cheap BOV. Cost $15 and works great.
    E-Bay wastegate (also working fine for now)

    Leah Head,

    I noticed you had recently finished a boost project on your buddys 460. I am restoring my fathers truck since he has passed and am wanting to do the exact same setup. I have a **** ton of questions for you guys and being one of the few on the net who has done this I'd really like to hear back from you. Questions about your MAF conversion.... tranny and motor reliability... turbo size... motor internals...Compression ratio...tuning and a few more issues. I have a motor on the stand torn down and ready to be built for later use yet want to fab and test on the current block in the truck 100k miles and blow it up before putting the expensive motor in.If you or your buddy who own the truck have a chance during the week or weekends to give me a call I would really appreciate it. I'm more than willing to shoot you guys some cash for detailed pics and build process if you would like.... my number 719-651-4019 my name is NIK. I'd really appreciate it
