I have made an error. Worse yet I have promulgated it in several places.
That's why I'm sending this to several places. Apologies if you get more
than one of these messages.
I stated, on several occasions that the Premium/Regular Octane switch pin
on an 85.5-86 SVO EEC-IV, was on pin 31. It is not. It's Pin 30. This
also applies to the Rapido SVO+ computer. On the XR4ti, pin 30 is the
Neutral Drive Switch pin. This means that for a late SVO computer in a
manual transmission XR, no changes need to be made. In an Automatic XR (or
practically any other Ford, that can take the SVO computer as a straight
swap, that has an automatic), then you need to tie pin 30 to the sig return
I'm afraid I was also the original source of this information in Allan's
book, and it's also wrong there.
So, ground Pin 30 for the WOOHOO! mode. (And in an 87-88 TC it's pin 24)
