Controlling IPR with AE

Hey guys I am going to do an air test on my 05 6.0 (to find my High Pressure Oil Leak). I need to close the IPR when I apply the air and wanted to know if I could close it using my AutoEnguinity software (just got it) or do I have to do the 12v with a pig tail??

IIRC, AE won't command to 100% close. It can only command up to 50%. You'll need to test the old fashion way with the "pigtail thingy".

Here is a copy/paste from Bismic's info. This info is from this link.
Troubleshooting a No-Start condition







1. Get an ipr connector from Ford and put 2 long wires on the end, plug it into the ipr. Later you will attach the 2 long leads to b+ and negative ...... this will close the ipr.
2. Then remove your icp sensor (04.25 and up truck??) from the passenger side valve cover and thread a fitting in with an air fitting on the end (so you can apply compressed air to the hp oil system).
3. Remove your oil fill cap, your intake up to the turbo (get the ccv out of the valve cover at least), and the hot side cac tube.
4. Then, command the IPR closed for only 30 seconds, apply 100psi air to the hp oil system and listed to where the leak is coming from.
When you hear it you've found your problem....that is assuming you have a hp oil problem.
If your building low and high oil pressure fine, then you've just wasted your time.

Thanks for the help! I went by ford and they are going to have the IPR pigtail in tomorrow. I am going to do the airtest tomorrow.
