Update on the IMRC from another vehicle...

IT WORKS!!
my previous post about a different one throwing codes is due to me simply not plugging the control box in. I felt really dumb when I realized my mistake.

Again to summarize;
An IMRC from another Ford vehicle with dual stage intake WORKS on our SVT's.

Let me know if there are any questions.

Do you have an SVT model?
If not...you need not worry about the DSI in that case.

I'm horrible with google and can't find a price idea for that. Would it be cheaper to buy for another car perhaps? I just tried this and it didn't work so I have to replace the part.

I have an old one that the board in side is bad, everything else is fine including the cable assembly. If someone needs one and wants to possible make a good one from the one they have along with mine I'll sell it cheap

So is what your saying you obviously don't need this with a Supercharger ( u lucky dog ) buy really I'm not sure how to fake the ECU into thinking it's preset and working properly. Maybe someone else can chime in...sry m8.
