SECTION A – DISASSEMBLY

The following section will guide you through the disassembly of the stock components. Special care should be taken to label fasteners and parts that are taken off during this procedure since many will be reused:

1. Cover both fenders with fender covers to protect the vehicle finish.

2. Release the fuel system pressure.

NOTE: The following procedure is taken directly from the Ford Service Manual).

WARNING: Fuel in the fuel system remains under high pressure even when the engine is not running. Before working on or disconnecting any of the fuel lines or fuel system components, the fuel system pressure must be relieved. Failure to do so can result in personal injury.

WARNING: flame of any type when working on or near any fuel-related components. Highly flammable mixtures are always present and can be ignited, resulting in personal injury.

a. Open the vehicle doors and lift the bottom cushion of the back seat. It is held in place by a push tab in the center of each cushion.



b. Disconnect the Fuel Pump Control Module electrical connector located under the driver side back seat. 


c. Start the engine and allow it to idle until it stalls.

d. After the engine stalls, crank the engine for approximately 10 seconds to make sure the fuel injector supply manifold pressure has been released.

e. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

4. Rewrap the ground wire with electrical tape.


5. Use snips to cut off the bent metal tab on the end of the ground tab.


6. Using a step bit, drill the hole on the tab to enlarge the opening. The hole must be larger to accommodate a larger bolt.
TIP: Hold the tab with pliers when drilling to keep the tab stationary.


INTERCOOLER PUMP WIRING

1. Lift up the fuse box by releasing the two (2) retaining tabs and locate the hole underneath the fuse box near the PCM. The intercooler pump relay will be attached at this location.

10. Zip tie the excess harness out of the way and secure it to a safe location.

KNOCK SENSOR ORIENTATION ADJUSTMENT

The knock sensors must be reoriented and the harnesses rewrapped to accommodate the new fuel charging assembly. It will be necessary to split the two (2) sensor wires further up the harness in order to gain the necessary slack for proper sensor positioning towards the side of the engine valley.
1. Remove the 90-degree plastic wiring retainer clipped to the connector and taped to the wiring convolute.


2. Loosen the two (2) bolts which retain the knock sensors to the engine block (10 mm socket). If necessary, one (1) of the bolts and sensors can be removed for this modification process.
3. Peel back the tape from the connectors and remove the convolute approximately 1-1/2" past where they meet at the harness.


4. Temporarily fit the sensors as follows to determine where to rewrap the wires. Install and rotate the RH and LH knock sensors as far as possible to the outside of the valley of the block. Check that the sensors lay low on the engine valley so they will not interfere with the fuel charging assembly once it is installed.


5. Reinstall the convolute and rewrap the wires with electrical tape as required.
6. Install the knock sensors in position. Install the bolts and torque them to 20-30 Nm.
