Modotek’s all-new BlackBox v2.0 engine-management system is controlling Project Cheaper Sleeper’s A.R.E. Performance & Machine-built beast. This full-featured PCM system was selected for our effort because it plays right into our under-cover theme, plugging directly into the LX’s stock wiring harness. Mark Chollet, the man we’ve come to know as Modotek Mark, is one of the technical wizards behind BlackBox v2.0’s development. “We designed the Modotek BlackBox system specifically for stock 5.0 Mustang owners who plan on modifying to a point where stand-alone engine controls are necessary for achieving performance that goes beyond the ability of the stock ECU. It also supports ’Stangs that are already outfitted for making serious power via nitrous, turbos, and superchargers,” Mark explained. “While there certainly are other systems on the market that operate similarly, the BlackBox is the only PCM that plugs directly into the factory’s EEC-IV wiring and sensors in ’86-’93 ‘Stangs, and is ready to control just about any pushrod engine combination an enthusiast can create."
