  • Tunes Available for Mark VIIIs?

    I'd like to explore what a performance-oriented tune might do for my '98 Mark VIII, but I'm running into dead ends looking for a pre-loaded tuner. SCT Will sell me their tuner, but without tunes. I did some looking based on some older posts and found that Temple had one for the Mark listed on their website, but it disappeared after I left a voice-mail inquiry. Blue Oval appears to be out of business. I'm a neophyte when it comes to modern ECUs, and I have yet to do anything to the car that would require custom tuning. What do other Mark VIII enthusiasts do these days for tunes?

    There's a Blue Oval (mostly check it for Mustang stuff) on ebay. Don't know if it's the same one you're referring to.

        Thank-you guys for the information! I wasn't able to find anything about tuning via Blue Oval's E-bay store, but I did speak with Don LaSota this morning. He's pretty much got me sold on the Pro-Racer package for my Mark, as I would like to understand how tunes are created and be able to play around a bit myself. Driller, do you have any experience with this package?

          Indeed I do have experience with the SCT Pro-Racer Package. There is quite a steep learning curve but honestly I started with the EEC-IV platform which was quite a bit simpler and it definitely gave me a head start with the Gen2 OBD-2 system. I don't consider myself a 'tuner' but I don't fear making changes in the tune for my application.

          Don wrote the book on the PRP software - literally. He also provides video reference to get you started along the way. You do need to practice restraint with the air/fuel mixture and spark timing as you do have the capacity to destroy things - literally.

            Ive always been a firm believer in a dyno tune.
