Installing a "quarterhorse" ECU chip in a 93 1.9l wagon
Interesting, I don't know much about this subject, let us know how it goes.
I'ma stay posted
let me know how this turns out. if you can get good power out of these shitboxes then i can scrap my k-series idea
I just want to go tune my 1.9 without splicing wires and having no ac and cruise!!
As of right now the moates chip dosen't have support for the specific .def that is necessary to build a base tune on a factory computer. If you could write a .def for the car, the chip will work but I'm not that computer smart. I'll link to the moates guide on writing definition files.
The hardware is compatible with the computer though, and is usable, but without a tune on the qh chip it will not start
I'm probably either going to get a gt or transplant a 2.3 from a tempo in
2.3 swap would be a tough process.
Yeah, but I plan to get a whole tempo k member and suspension, then put a turbocoupe motor in it
Ok, does anyone know of a Ford tempo manual transmission in the seattle/Portland area? Condition dosent matter I just need the motor and transmission
I hope you know how to weld and fabricate because none of that is going to come close to fitting in a 2nd gen. Tempo stuff fits in 1st gens only, 2nd and 3rd gens are Mazda based.
Widebody will probably be the plan, front halving the tempo and grafting my sheet metal onto it. Or perhaps Frankensteining the whole tempo front end onto the wagon? It's in the planning stages still
