The following diagrams are the correct orientation and wiring for the TFI ignition.

The following diagrams are for EDIS-8 Ignition Systems used on 8 cylinder engines.

The following diagram is for converting TFI to EDIS-8

TFI to EDIS-8

The following diagram is for external TFI "DIS" ignition systems used on the 6 cylinder supercoupes.

DIS Diagram

The following diagrams are for 4 Cylinder engines using either DIS or EDIS ignitions.

Special thanks to those whom have contributed photos and diagrams.

DIS Settings

For those whom are swapping to Distributorless DIS/External TFI (not EDIS) from TFI Distributor ignitions the following tune changes will need to be made:
PIDDescriptionNew ValueOld ValueComments
HP_HIDRESEDIS Module Present001=EDIS Module Present
HP_CIDCID Present10Cylinder ID Present
HP_CIDSELCID Sensor Type00Determines if hall effect or variable reluctance cam sensor is present
DPL_DHPDual Plug Ignition00Dermines if a dual plug ignition setup is present
IGN_TYPEIgnition Type000= TFI, 1= TFI w/ CCD (94-95), 2=Low Data Rate Distributorless Dual Plug, 3= LDRD Single Plug, 4=High Data Rate (EDIS)
MHPFDSignature PIP Duty Cycle Offset Constant0.990.20

Note: IGN_TYPE is not available in older ecu's such as the GUFB strategy. For GUFB use the CCDSW instead.
CCDSW; 1=enables CCD for non-push start TFI's and ICM's
Dwell scalars and functions will need to be updated as follows.

EDIS Settings

For those whom are swapping to EDIS from either DIS or TFI ignitions the following tune changes will need to be made:

HP_HIDRESEDIS Module Present101=EDIS Module Present
HP_CIDCID Present10Cam Sensor Present
HP_CIDSELCID Sensor Type10Determines if hall effect or variable reluctance cam sensor is present

Note: IGN_TYPE is not available in older ecu's such as the GUFB strategy.
At this time, it is only known that CZAJL, GUFB, CCAQA, CCAQE, and the CZAW0 strategy EEC-IV's support EDIS ignitions. This excludes the crown victoria and lincoln towncars that use unsupported strategies. CBAZA (94-95 mustang v8) does not support EDIS.

ECU / # Engine Cylinder - Swaps / Changes

For those whom are using ECU's for engines with fewer cylinders the follow tune changes must be made:
PIDDescriptionOld ValueNew ValueComments
NUMCYLNumber of Cylinders8 6 or 4May cause some pins to be reassigned
NUMOUTInjector Output Ports86 or 4
ENGCYLPips per Rev86 or 4

NUMEGO# HEGOs Present22 or 1usually set to 1 for 4 cylinder engines

MHPFDSignature PIP Duty Cycle Offset Constant0.208 cyl= 0.20, 6 cyl= 0.24, 4cyl= 0.29, No Signature PIP= 0.99
ENG_CONFIG_1Engine Configuration 168(#cylinders * 8 * # valves per cylinder); v6 = 50, v6 sohc = 66, v8 dohc= 68, 4cyl 2v = 34 - eec V only DIS_COP_HWCoil On Plug Ignition System Hardware0 -> COIL PACK, 1 -> COIL ON PLUG
**Verify SPKSWL and SPKSWH are equivalent so the falling edge of the ignition interrupt is always used.

Coil on Plug (CoP) and Coil Pack Swaps

The following applies to those whom are swapping from coil packs to coil on plugs, or coil on plugs to coil packs.
