Mustang Computer Code Identification (1987-2004)


It’s very important to correctly identify your Mustang’s computer code, especially when you want to obtain some custom tunes from Bama Tuning. There are hundreds of codes out there and it would be near impossible and extremely hazardous to your motor if you attempt to guess your code. Below, you will find some examples of Mustang computer codes, arranged separately by year range and tips to help you recognize your specific ECU code.

1987-2004 Mustangs:


The Mustang Computer Coding is found on the PCM which is located on 1987 to 2004 Mustangs on the Passenger Side (RH) of the vehicle behind the Side Kick Panel. Below are two example images from our 1998 Mustang GT: one showing the RH kick panel removed with computer/wiring exposed, second showing a close up of the computer code = DBZ2
