If you can datalog, you should also be able to look up the P1127 (in LiveLink, Ctrl+T).

Odds are it's a wiring issue with the O2 heater (rear O2).

Your ECU is just fine.
It's a tune issue more than it'd be a bad ECU.

^I know what it is. Looked it up in my Ford software.
I was trying to show him how to find in with his software.

No that wouldnt be wise to do , but if you had a xcal we could narrow down your problem and fix it vs covering it up

Your right about not covering the problem up, but I just can't comprehend how it could go into limp mode after just idling for no more then two minuntes

The MTF is wrong.
If you're tuning with Tom, get him datalogs of what he wants and I'm quite sure he'll get it working as it should.
