    01 mustang

    I'm in a foreign land here so don't hang me lol. My dad has a 01 mustang with the 4.6. I've heard the mpvi2 has support for these vehicles but can be buggy. Anyone have experience with these that could throw me a few suggestions before I upgrade to the mpvi2. New to Ford tuning and trying to help him out

    Dont upgrade your 1 for the two, just buy a 2 outright, as of right now you need the 2 for reading and writing the files, and the 1 for logging

    It may have either a chip on the jport or a tune already, not uncommon for them to tune it, and logging only will do basics. If this is the case, you likely wont be able to read the tune anyway

    From everything I can tell car was bone stock when he bought it. He's done just basic bolt on to it. He has no clue when it comes to the electronic stuff lol.

    Ive learned all about eecv tuning the past 6 months.....they suck no matter what once you get cams and boost involved. Bolt ons are a breeze! If you have questions pm me
