94-95 Mustang 302 V8: CBAZA / T4M0 / W4H0 / etc.


These processors use a TFI distributor, sequential injection for up to 8 injectors, MAF air metering and an electronically controlled AOD-E 4 speed automatic transmission or Tremec 5 speed manual.  This EEC-IV system became the blueprint for future Ford systems (EECV and beyond) for years to come.  The 94 Mustang with its CBAZA strategy is arguably the first “modern” Ford processor, at least in the sense that the same thinking and algorithms for fueling, spark and transmission control are used to the present day.  Initially hindered by a lack of datalogging capabilities, this platform has been able to truly shine with the help of Moates tuning tools.

Hardware for Tuning

  • QuarterHorse – integrated device brings unique functionality to the table.  It is a “chip on steroids” that allows you to make changes while the vehicle is running and (with supporting software) log live data from the vehicle.
  • F3 – simple chip module that can store one or two tunes and switch between them while vehicle is running.  Requires Jaybird programmer or BURN2+FA.
  • F8 – fancy chip module that can store eight tunes and switch between them while vehicle is running.   Can also be programmed while installed – no need to remove chip to reprogram it.  Requires Destiny programmer
  • BURN2 + FA + FE – generic chip programmer with Ford adapter (FA) and ECM interface (FE) that can be used to read the current program from EECIV and EECV ECMs on the bench.

Software for Tuning

CBAZA is the strategy used by 94-95 V8 Mustangs, both automatic and manual transmission.  Base bin files from stock vehicles can be downloaded with tuning software so it is not critical to read your own ECM.  Most definitions support full transmission control in addition to allowing engine parameters to be modified.  This is a very common, established, well supported application.  Any of the three tuning softwares that we sell will work for this application.  Any tunes developed using a QuarterHorse can be programmed to F3/F8 chips for long term use.

  • Binary Editor 2012 is a Ford-specific graphically oriented tuning software that supports many EEC-IV and EEC-V processors.  The CBAZA strategy has full editing and logging support using the QuarterHorse.  There are both free and pay versions of the CBAZA strategy.
  • TunerPro RT is a universal tuning software that supports the CBAZA strategy with full QuarterHorse editing and logging using the definitions on this site.
  • EEC Editor is a Ford-specific tuning software that supports the CBAZA strategy with full QuarterHorse editing and logging.
