Do you think this will work for other vehicles other than Broncos (like maybe their smaller, road-only cousin the Mustang)?

And not to hijack this great writeup thread, but what did you use to replace the "thick film". Is it something you "made yourself" or is it just regular dielectric grease. I think my TFI is on its way out (second in six months) and last time I just used regular dielectric grease.

The relocation will work on anything with dizzy mounted TFI.

What are you talking about? The thick film is inside the module.

I will be doing this mod soon then.

I thought the "thick film" was the grease used to keep it grounded to the Dizzy.

And the "did you make the thick film yourself" was a shamelfully tasteless, and poorly constructed "baby batter" joke.

I will be sure to post more of these tasteless and poorly crafted jokes until you get them, as it is the norm here on FSB.

Another think you can do to increase the life expectancy of the TFI, wether mounted on the Dizzy or remotly is.

STOP BYING CHEAP CHAN PARTS STORE TFI's

Yes the ones from Ford cost more, they also last longer.

But the relocation will defenantly extend the life of any TFI.

Has any one thout of mounting a CPU fan over the remote mounted one?
Just an idea.

This is the thread I followed when I remotely mounted mine. Remote Mount ICM with XBOX 360 Heatsink

You can also buy the kit on ebay including the heat sink.

One thing to mention tho if you have an el cheapo Autozone or the like TFI module you should throw it away and get one from Ford or NAPA sells the Motorcraft one.

See this link: RJM Injection Technologies Remote TFI Harness




This is for retaining your current PCM using your existing Gray Push Start TFI ICM. Simple, nice, clean and recommended. 1/2 price at $75.00.

You will need to provide your own:

Remote TFI module (Gray "Push Start", Motorcraft - DY1075)
Aluminum TFI heatsink
Distributor for remote TFI

--------------------------

Or, see these links:

Glayd
so i guess i need the heat sink thingy

this is the route i would go. im not spending any money i dont have too. i have seen mustang guys do this this way and i think its the way to go. im not buying a new dizzy just to move the stupid TFI. im just gonna run some wires with male and female fittings. put some thin in the hole to seal it up.

I tried to find the heat sink at the junk yard but somebody was snatching them all up (probably the guy who sells them on ebay). You might have better luck tho.

Here's the kit that I used before I found out that Fireguy has a kit.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MUSTANG-BRON...d85165&vxp=mtr

This kit has an empty sealed up TFI module that installs to your distributor just like your TFI module. It's used just for the connection to your dizzy so you don't have to "fill in the holes" or risk the wires falling out. The cable they use is Belden shielded cable. Heat Sink is included. I've had mine running for over a year now and its worked out.

See this link: http://www.howardsupply.com/ford-mer...e-problems.htm

Looks like 4.9L is on it

If you're not having any problems with it overheating i wouldn't worry about it.
