Bronco Info: 1996 Eddie Bauer 351w STOCK
I ended up buying the $30 .bin file from Moates for EEC Editor and playing with the tuning on it. It is a little harder to understand than Binary Editor, but not too hard for the simple things I was trying to do. I mainly played with the timing advance table (spark_borderline_knock). After all is said and done, I took it all off for now. My Bronco is completely stock as far as the drive train is concerned. I even have the factory exhaust. So I really didn't expect to see much of a gain, and I didn't notice any change when I took it off. Bottom line, unless I'm doing major motor work or upgrades to exhaust, I'll leave the ECU on the stock tuning. It's just not worth the effort to me, it was cool to mess with and all, but not any gains that I could see. If I wanted to advance the tuning enough and run premium gas, I may have really noticed a gain. Just wanted to update
