Just out of curiosity is there a way for Ford to program my PATS system, without the car being there. Like can i bring the ECU, cluster, ignition etc and they would be able to program it? The cluster and ECU are from the same car but the ignition and key are out of my v6.
I really don't want to tow the car there and i want to be the first one to start the car lol

Turning into a nightmare pulling this engine it seems the starter is getting stuck on the motor mount. I disconnected the starter but can't get it out of the small space between the frame and trans

You went from the wiring mess right above us to getting ready to fire it up and we don't have any pictures? :deeplist:

Haha the wires are all connected, Im going to make sure the car runs before i wrap up the harness, since there is a lot of fabricated wiring and i don't trust my wiring skills
