Please no haters... All work was done by me.

Now for my problems... just imagine the mustang when thinking about this because i used all wiring from the mustang all the way to the speedometer fuel pump P.A.T.S system... yea the That pesky security thing... thats my problem. I want to get rid of that system and dont know where to begin. Could i build a MegaSquirt ecu and just cut all the garbage wires out? Im used to building older vehicles such as the front engine rear wheel drive Sandrail. Please help!!!

That's pretty sick. I love it! Well samuelsmith on here knows all about PATS you could send him a message. Or you could get someone to disable PATS with a tune. How did you go about installing the drivetrain?!? Oh and welcome

Here is the most I got out of the dealership. PATS for dummies translation
Great work on the transformation!
I turned mine off with a tune because I did not have a second key to diagnose.
Pats communicates with the engine, pats box, computer, gage cluster, and key. If you do not include any of these items in your install, pats will cut off your fuel pump. If you rewire the fuel pump you can eliminate the pats system.

There must be something from the mustang you forgot to transfer if you had an entire donor car for the swap. If all is present then something pats related was damaged at one point.

So a megasquirt ECU would allow me to remove all features and run just my motor and tune... just going off of what your tune did.

I am a certified mechanic with many years experience between me and my pops . We hit all the basics and i was driving and street sliding my car. and some of this. street sliding with the girlfriend ended in disaster. took out a 4'' wide aluminium Do not enter, Wrong way sign... my front support held up great just not my fiberglass fenders and headlight. Now i have this problem and got all my piping for my 70 trim turbo off to the side a little bit, And possibly a gtp supercharger in the center. also i have a 4.2l out of a 2003? f150 sitting under my bench in my shop which i planned to do the conversion.

I do not know the megasquirt ECU and not brave enough to tune my own vehicle. If I get a chance to take a course in engine dynamics the situation will change.
The way it was explained to me is, "a cell needs to be turned off". I was not told the exact cell. If you can not figure it out I have two recommendations.
One: American Muscle has a Bama tune team that specifically tunes Mustangs. The call is free.
Two: David does not get on here often, but he is subcontracted through Orbits. Orbits sells tunes. He is working on a merger. He may know. David turned pats off when he installed a Cobra gage cluster.

I'm not aware of what needs to be turned off in the tune for it, just know that Luis turned mine off when I requested it.
