Cam signal alterations - define trigger wheel

Postby Curious » Tue Mar 26, 2019 7:43 am

I asked over on HPtuner forums and got told you fellas might have the answers.

Is there any way to modify what cam signal a BA Falcon PCM is looking for?
reducing from an inlet and exhaust signal to a single signal and from a 3 + 1 trigger signal to a 1 trigger signal?

I'm attempting to run a single overhead cam engine with a BA PCM.
I have a MPVI2 with VCM Edit but i suspect it's not equipped to do what i want.

Any help is appreciated and i'm willing to R 'n' D with directions :director:
Thanks guys :D

I was thinking of adding a second cam sensor to the timing cover and having a new timing gear made with the correct number of teeth to simulate the DOHC timing.

I wont say it cant be done but as a rule of thumb the oem pcms dont have a lot of trigger options as they only had to support the platform they came out with. Fabricating a trigger that sends the pcm what it wants might be the simplest option but if there is a setting in the ford software someone here will know.
