1turbofocus Yes it will work and you can tune it with your xcal3 flasher as long as it isnt locked to another car meaning you can only tune one car at a time

You dont need the cam sensor plugged in for the car to run only to use the VCT which can be turned off in a tune

BigRed03 the escort community may be able to help you more with regards to the tuning the VCT out on the cougar ECU.

The head will physically bolt up, and it may be easier to just use a VCT delete setup and only deal with removal of the VCT in the ECU vs an entire retune with a new cam timing setup.

If that cts sf3 flasher is "locked" to a certain ECU/VIN number, then no it wont tune.
