Either the spring doesn't engage on the first revolution or my spring has popped off - what does it do? I never got a CEL, I just had to remove the IMRC to get the frame straightened. When it rattled like it had marbles in it, I opened it up.

Will it still work without a functional spring or does the spring just float until the shaft has turned 1 rev?

The spring puts tension on the gears so it will not operate completely with a faulty spring. Mine just came off so I just had to put it back on the right way. I don't think I've had any problems with it? No CEL anyways but I still get shitty intown driving but highway is still pretty decent.

just an FYI, an IMRC from any 2.5 Duratec from 1996 on will work on our SVT's.

just did this today!

bolts up in the same place just as the SVT version does. cable lengths differ, but it works just the same.

just a tad longer. i routed it the same way.

this isnt a permanent fix though. the different IMRC will throw a code P1520

by reading this code, i assume that the voltage demands are different between units.

oh well.

i found a used IMRC from an SVT in the BST

O.k, not to sound stupid but, how would you know if you needed to replace this ? I have a forced induction focus with 90k if that helps. I have no problems instead of my engine light on that never goes away because of the SC, but the car runs great, just has a shaky idle, but I think thats a re-tune issue.
