replacing a C type pats for a B type pats module
I have a Pats question that maybe sounds very strange.
I have a older jaguar S type with 3.0 v6 duratec engine and a 5r55n gearbox. Its almost the same as the engine used in a Lincoln LS 3.0 v6. I want to swap the engine/gearbox in a other car. It uses a ford ECU but it has a C type pats system (pats module in the instrument cluster) over the SCP network. Ford also uses this same system in several Fords.
For the swap that would mean I need to swap everything from the jag in the other car even the things I don't need just to keep the instrument cluster working and to avoid the fault codes.
My plan. Only use the engine and transmission wiring loom and ecu and disconnect the instrument cluster and thereby the cluster internal pats from the SCP network the ecu uses and use a separate B type pats module on the SCP network. I know the B type pats module uses the same SCP network and protocols as the C type pats. Both pats versions even has the same pinouts and workings according to the diagrams.
Even in the states, most later fords use a C type pats system and I can only guess these newer engines will be swapped in older cars. Now forget that I use a jag as a donor car and here is my question: has anyone done this before?? Can a B style pats module be paired with a ecu that normally uses a C type pats system?
