Just out of curiosity exactly how many computers are on the 6.4 engine and chassis that would effect the way the engine and transmission work? which ( wire's ,computers, sensors )would make just the engine and transmission run and perform like it was in the chassis.

thanks steve-0 :D

alot. not trying to be smart. Every sensor has a reason and a side affect if tampered with. You really cant take away any sensors.

I just took the 6.4 class to be certified by ford. let me tell you the 6.4 makes my 6.0 look like a Dinosaur. You would need all the sensors the wiring harness cause its a can bus system and the modules.You cant just hack a harness together. You would need the ecm,gpcm, and i think the instrument cluster as dumb as that sounds.

Sounds like my &##%# Jettta. Great little car but when one module acts up it has an effect on the others.

I plan on using the whole dash assembly and not cutting any wires. If you could shed some more light on this I would greatly appretiate it.

Can bus systems are twisted pairs of wire and they have to stay twisted. If not twisted they will screw the whole system up.radio intereference will occur from module to module. I think you will need the instrument cluster cause when we have to program the ecm we have to reprogram the ic,tcm and the ecm all together.
