Hello and thanks for the warm welcome!
OK, a tricky one for you guys. Maybe Mr Herrod can offer some tips? :s5
Two years back I had the 5.0 in my Ghia rebuilt to basically standard spec, except for a balance, ChipTorque custom chip and a mild Crane camshaft.
Now, the CC works OK, in auto and manual modes and isn't showing any fault codes. But the airflow cannot be switched from 'floor' to 'screen' etc. etc. I can hear the system trying to alter the airflow path (so the blend door is getting power), but it remains on centre vents only. I have checked all vacuum lines from the motor and all appears well. The fact that it only started to occur after the engine-out is too much of a coincidence!
Any ideas? Is the system vacuum or electrically adjusted? I understand that cam changes can affect brakes under low RPM, but is my CC sensitive enough to be affected by a mild bumpstick?
