5.4 VCT Delete

Im deleting the VCT on a 5.4 3v. Is there a way to do this without throwing a CEL? What are the available methods of reflashing the ECM to eleminate the VCT? This is on a stock engine, what will be the emission or driveability issues I might have? Any help is appreciated, Thanks

Re: 5.4 VCT Delete

The kit is about $100.00. But why would you pay $100.00 for less power, performance
and gas mileage ? Plus you will probably not pass the emission test.

Are you doing this as a result of a drivability issue caused from a sludged engine??? If so, don't waste your time or money.
