i am currently building a car with a 2015-2017 coyote aluminator crate engine. i have your AEM infinity 8 ecu with the PNP harness to be used standalone (without the ford control pack).
I recieved my harness the other day and realized that the pig tail for the main harness (AEM PnP harness - coyote engine harness) is not the same as the 11-14. I can switch to an 11-14 harness no problem, the only thing i would have to change is the VVT pigtails which i can cut and solder to the 11-14 harness.
My concern is, will the AEM ECU support the 15-17 valvetrain differneces? i have spoken with Ford Racing group to determine if there are any differences between the type of sensors used on the 15-17 compared to the 11-14. i have not recieved a response yet other than the intake and exhaust cams use the same sensors, but im not sure if they are referring to the cam sensors or the VVT sensors.
What are my options or plan forward with this? is there a software update that can be made to make this ECU compatible with the new 15-17 engine?
My car is finished and i have many races planned for this year im hoping to make starting in mid april, im trying to find an option that allows me to use the AEM with the CD-7 dash and also not have to dismantle my engine and change hardware such as cams or lock out phasers (unless this can be done externally to the engine). The car is a dedicated drag race car, so most of the creature comforts im okay without.
Thanks very much for your time!
