Same thing happened when Ford went from the Gen 1 to the Gen 2. It took several years for the aftermarket companies to support the Gen 2 including specifically the IMRC that Ford added. For a long time many of them didn't even support the variable cams. I've talked to the guys at Ford Performance, the calibration (tunes) in the Gen 3 is very complex because of the dual fuel injection setup. You might be in for a long wait.After doing some digging it looks like if I want any hope of doing a custom traction control/launch control setup I need a motor with strictly port injection, eliminating the gen 3. In an ideal world they have an update for the aem infinity stand alone ecu and I could dive into the world of VE and full control/tunability to boot... but this might be a case of "well you can't have everything".
It's not from a dealer but there is a guy (Doug Austin) on the Factory Five Builder group on FB that listed a new Gen 2 with Boss 302 intake and a bunch of other new stuff to go with it for $10k last week. It is a pretty sweet looking motor with the Boss coil covers and intake. It also already has the oil pan for the roadster. Here is the post: Log into FacebookHi all, been following for a while, but mainly on the other forum.
Question is: anyone know of any vendors that might still be supplying new Gen 2 Coyote's?
The more I dig into this the less hope I have...
Short answer, maybe. I like the tuning interface and the fact that they have a general setup for the Gen 1. I also like that I can make changes myself easily with my laptop, that there's data logging and graphing available, I can add twin turbos, traction control, etc.Q4 that's really insightful stuff, thanks! I maybe (maybe!) found a lead on a gen 2 so fingers crossed. If you were to do it over again would you do the infinity?
I haven't done a deep dive on how the tuning process works for these motors, but my understanding is that the ecu should have all the inputs and outputs to manipulate a gen 2, but no 'base tune' right out of the box?
I agree with aem having to keep up with the tech, but thought it required a pretty fundamental change to their hardware.
