  • canned tune in x3 for CVPI?

    Will the x3 pickup that I have a police package crownvic instead of a std civillian version and not mess anything up if I go w/ the canned tune?

    well I just tried it, I get the CEL and the wrench light up, and the car idles a little lower it seems, so I flashed it back to stock :<

      Read the strategy of the vehicle then post it up. More than likely one of the custom tuners :) can make you a tune for it. To read the strategy go to the diagnostics/dtc menu, down arrow to read/get strategy, write it down and post it up and one of us here will let you know if we can do it.

        its FCCN5P6 for strategy

        and my x3 has fw: 1.1.109, tune rev 1.0.5

        its a stock crown vic, just the police package model, shouldn't it be supported with the device as is? :(

          Most of the pre-loaded tunes just cover the common stock vehicles.

          The funny thing is, on my website I sell custom devices for only about $20-$25 more than the pre-loaded devices. However, if you have to go out and get a custom tune later on it costs more. I'm not trying to say "I told you so", but making vehicle owners think about doing their research before buying a product, and figuring out what is best for them.

            I guess from being on forums I thought the cvpi was a pretty common crown vic, but I guess in the big picture maybe not. My dealer is going to work a tune up for me, I just thought that being a production crown vic from ford maybe there should have been a canned tune in there for it since it lists crown vic on the vehicle list.

            I just rebuilt my stock 95gt to a dart331 w/ a vortech blower, full fuel system, rear end, brake upgrades, full MM suspension, I'm no stranger to researching parts before I buy them, you probably know the amount of parts involved with an overhaul like that, I only got bit on a couple of fuel fittings, but as soon as I saw they weren't going to work I was able to return them so no biggie :D It's not like I'm going to return this x3 because it doesn't have a canned tune, I just think it should at least have a working canned tune since thats what they list as supported, a crown victoria. I'm sure they(sct) and alot of other people will see it differently though.
