I've seen his name mentioned in several posts and that he's no longer around.

Who is/was he ? Did he retire? Pass? Change hobbies?

He was a Bronco wiring guru that helped a bunch of people out over the years. I’m not sure what may have happened to him as I was disengaged for the past 5 or so years.

I ask myself these questions a lot on older posts from various members I see. Never really know.

There is a thread on here that mentions all of those who have knowingly passed on. You could look through that, but it may bum you out just reading through it. It kinda did to me, I had to stop. lol

Above is right.
There was hear say that he just started suppling harness to others, and not selling them himself. I am unsure if that is still the case today or not.
I still have a MAF engine harness he made running my '92 Bronco right now. Top Notch stuff. I also have a few 3g alternators I got from him still working, along with the harnesses for them as well.

Yup, Ford basically sent him a cease and desist order over his website. I searched the webs for him a couple years ago, and only found one "match" who had just been arrested iirc. Wasnt him, I'm sure.

Not gonna share his name, for privacy reasons.

@miesk5 has some of his old stuff catalogued, and you can still find some info at RJM injection tech.com I think.

@miesk5 Did he pass? His post about ill health and being a retired paramedic/firefighter....leads me to believe he's deceased.

I knew a lot of old school "firemen" (no disrespect to the ladies)...I'm talking dudes that be late 70s today. They all fell victim to some respiratory disease or cancer in their late 50s-mid 60s.

Back in the day these dudes rushed in with either no or very crude breathing apparatus. Hazmat? They didn't know or realized the dangers they faced everytime they were on duty. These "firemen" as all first responders today are heroes.

I asked an innocent and inquisitive question. I had no idea of the response it would create. Must have been/is a great guy.
He was a great guy, who had a wealth of knowledge on how the ford efi worked. He was a big part of our community. Our family if you will...

So many likes to leave here already. I considered Ryan a good friend and a great guy. Having him around as this place was getting on it's feet, he was an invaluable resource and generous to a fault with the time he would put in just to document and share detailed information... and back it up. For quite a few years, everything he put out as he started his business was detailed unquestionably well and built to last. I bought one of his last 3G setups for my PlowBeast, right before sh!t started going sideways for him. Knowing him for a few years prior, getting very patient and detailed information freely given without any attitude or arrogance... I felt horrible for him and can only imagine that his personal issues spun him completely out of control. After a good bit of trouble mentioned before... he just disappeared.
I like to hope that he just dropped out and chose a different path but knowing the physical and hints at some mental issues he rarely alluded too... I doubt it's a cheery story, whatever it may be.

I hadn't read that link or the issues he had elsewhere but it makes me sad for him because the guy I knew wanted nothing more than to make an honest buck to get by while giving the best he possibly could in return. I will always remember Ryan as a funny, quirky, incredibly intelligent, knowledgeable and generous, original and founding member of our forum.

I’m still a n00b and never “met” the man but kudos to him for sharing his knowledge and creating the online content. I admire and respect those willing to teach and share their knowledge with others.

If he encountered difficulties in dealing with life issues and neglected his business, to me, that should not take away from the good the man did/does.

Wherever he may be, I wish him peace!

There is some CRAZY-good tech in this. I mean, engineering-level comprehension. I could see why Ford may have gotten nervous about some of this being made public information (not that I necessarily agree with their approach, or anything). However, if this was just a taste of the man's understanding and attempt to relay it to the end-user... I'm nobody special, at all, but I've only ever seen some of this tech elaborated on, at this level of disclosure, in tuning forums.

Yo Silver,
Ford's sub-contracted lawyers went too far with Ryan and others, including many web sites.
"Ford Threatens Enthusiast Sites With Lawsuits Over Copyright Infringement


In a recent letter to enthusiast web sites, Ford's reportedly requiring the relinquishment of all Ford trademarks including domain names, banners, signs and merchandise as well as a restitution payment of $5,000 by December 19th.
The days of the Carpocalypse are upon us and Ford is now taking it to the internet, web 2.0-style. In a recent letter received by enthusiast sites including, TheRangerStation.com, Ford is requiring the relinquishment of all Ford trademarks including domain names, banners, signs and merchandise as well as a restitution payment of $5000 by December 19th, 2008.
Enthusiast sites that have received a letter from the Howard, Phillips and Andersen legal firm will be required to promptly remove all cFoMoCo-trademarked material and are threatening a $100,000 lawsuit on top of the aforementioned restitution payment.

Ford claims the unofficial use of their trademarked names are damaging, which we don't buy. The one thing we would buy is the desire to keep others from profiting from the Ford brand in the form of merchandise. But we're wondering whether Ford's lawyers should really be going after enthusiast web sites right now when they need friends anywhere they can get them.
Of course, maybe we're on the wrong track of thought here — maybe we should be thinking they’re looking to make a buck any way they can? Or could Ford be concerned the leveraged-to-the-hilt logos won't be worth as much to the automaker's growing corps of creditors? More than likely it's just another case of the lawyers not understanding what the value of positive PR is."

Really? Unlicensed logo usage? That was their excuse? Lame. FFS, the information was priceless. With the amount of tech-savvy youngsters out there, currently, being exposed to the electronic principles Ford was using in the '80's may have encouraged more of them to explore the hobby more and get excited about the company's progression to what they're currently using. Most of the young guys I talk to about my BKO, now, are like, "Seriously? That thing's fuel injected and has a computer? GTFO." They take an interest. Ford definitely did more harm than good with not only painting enthusiasts as brand pirates, but seeking petty financial recourse from them as well. Like they didn't even consider the amount of people drawn to the brand from exposure/access to enthusiast contributions.

Thanks for bringing me up to speed on the SITREP miesk. 👍

Brand loyalty is of course important, but I imagine the correlation between fans of older vehicles and sales of new vehicles is pretty low. And perspective is important: 2008 was a really bad time for the auto industry, so they probably weren't thinking clearly.

And that's why you transfer domain reg/hosting overseas to non compliant jurisdictions and politely tell them to go **** themselves ;)
