What aftermarket PCM's commonly get used, if a 05 modular V8 gets transplanted into another car (ie cobra)?


cheers. :)

Make the factory PCM work or I guess you could use the BS3 but it's really only necessary for 1000+ rwhp.

yeah a reprogrammed factory ecu is the most common. Its easiest to use the ecu for the engine, not the car, but the other way can work sometimes. There is no point to spend $$$$$$ on a stand alone that will never make the car run as nice as a factory ecu.

Yes ODBII. I'd recommend just trying to get a hold of everything you need from the factory 2005+ Mustang wiring harness.
