Ford Mustang 2024 will be ‘much harder to tune’



For many enthusiasts, part of Ford Mustang’s the attraction is the bulk after-sales support from which the model benefits. While third-party companies will sooner or later get their hands on a seventh-generation model, the range of modifications that can be made to four- or eight-cylinder engines will be reduced because Ford made the car ECU more difficult to adjust.

Ed Krenz, Mustang’s chief engineer, told Ford Agency that New model announced in September 2022 would be much “harder to adjust” than its predecessors. He explains that it’s because of the Electric Architecture of the Fully Networked Vehicle (FNV) that the Mustang is built around. This system allows for over-the-air software updates, among other features, but it also complicates the task of ECU tuning.

Krenz notes that the Mustang’s electrical system is encrypted and it is programmed to shut down if it detects what is known as an “interruption”. If that happens, it will completely disable or disable certain components or functions. That’s bad news for both hackers and modifiers.

That’s not to say Mustang owners will have a hard time with stock yields. Ford Agency adds that Blue Oval opens up the idea of ​​allowing companies to reliably regulate dials more powerfully. No one is identified by name, but Shelby is one of the notable companies. And, owners who want more horsepower and torque can get both directly from the source when the time comes. For example, Ford Performance just announced a set of calibrators that increases 2.3 liters Bronco’s about 30 horsepower and 60 pound-feet of torque when burning premium fuel.

Ford is not an exception to the rule; adjust Eighth generation Chevrolet Corvette equally difficult due to constraints related to ECU.
