Note in all the ECU documentation I've seen the function for the 3/4 shift is called 3/4 shift inhibit. Based on the info I found here if you did not provide a switch, it would simply hold 3rd and not shift into 4th. If you energize that pin, I believe the tranny would simply shift into 4th early. J...

Yep definitely need a manual. Since there is no mechanical advance in this car, adjusting at idle is fine. To time, make sure you uplug the SPOUT connector (Its a pigtail off the TFI harness that just has a simple jumper plug). This removes any timing advance. Go ahead and time, but make sure you re...

Do your have any examples of the clanding colors? The reason I ask, I think there may be more cladding colors depending on your definition of gray and toupe. The two Scorps I have seem to have variation of cladding color: Diamond white with silver cladding: http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n40/JSc...

The weight not withstanding, the size delta between the Taurus and Fusion is on par with most full size/mid size sedan class differences. Look at the Impala/Malibu or Avalon/Camary, or even go balck to the Taurus/Countour. The Fusion is hardly bigger than the Contour.
