Introduction
BD’s Ford 6.0L TapShifter kit gives you control over your automatic transmission with
just the touch of a button.
2003-2007 Ford 6.0 vehicles with a 5R110 transmission have only one automatic
drive mode and three manual gears from factory. This does not allow the driver to
disable overdrive nor does it allow for convenient engine braking.
The BD Ford TapShifter kit comes with a new Ford shift lever which goes in the stock
location for a sleek install. In addition, it comes with a small display module which
installs on the dash to show the selected gear.
This kit has a built in high pressure VVB (variable vane brake) function. It can close
the turbocharger vanes during deceleration generating exhaust backpressure which
helps to slow down the vehicle. The performance of this brake rivals even the
conventional butterfly valve type exhaust brake.
This kit is perfect for street performance, towing and racing. There are different modes
the module can operate in, allowing everything from normal gear liming to manual
torque converter lockup control and engine braking capabilities.

Operation
Shift the vehicle into drive (D). Press the down ‘-‘ button on the shift lever. The BD
display will now light up with the current gear the vehicle is in. The driver can now
press up ‘+’ and down ‘-‘ to increase and decrease the maximum gear.
The truck will now shift automatically through the gears, stopping at the selected gear.
This works just like most late model vehicles.
To disable the TapShifter, just press the ‘+’ button until the display turns off. Otherwise
the TapShifter system will automatically turn off any time the shift lever is moved out
of the drive position.
Alternate operational modes are built into the module which allows for manual control
of lockup in ALL gears, manual gear control and different shift points. See “User
Adjustments” at the end of this manual for more information.
The VVB exhaust brake feature of the module is enabled anytime the TapShifter is
turned on unless a separate switch has been installed (see “Optional VVB Switch
Wiring” at the end of the manual). It will automatically close the turbocharger vanes
during deceleration creating exhaust backpressure which will aid in decelerating the
vehicle. To maximize braking force, downshift the transmission for higher engine
RPM. The chart below shows the approximate exhaust backpressure attainable using
the TapShifter with VVB.

To remove the upper cover the ignition
lock cylinder must be removed. Insert a
long pick or similar tool into the hole
beneath the switch and push upwards
while rotating the key to the on
position.
When the key is in the on position and
light pressure is maintained on the
pick, it should be possible to slide the
ignition lock cylinder out of the steering
column.
NOTE: When the lock cylinder is
removed, do not rotate it as this will
make reassembly more difficult.
Remove the top half of the steering
column cover by pulling it apart from
the bottom and lifting it off and over the
shift lever handle.
NOTE: The bottom steering column
cover may be left in place.
Release the shifters rubber boot from
the two hold down clips. Unplug the
shift lever electrical connector.

Using a punch and a hammer, drive the
“press in pin” out of the shifter
assembly. This will allow the shifter
handle to be removed from the vehicle.
If the original shift lever had a rubber
bushing on the end of the shift lever
transfer it to the new shift lever adapter.
If not, disregard this step.
Ford introduced this bushing in later
model years to reduce shift lever play.
Insert the new shift lever adapter
supplied with this kit into the steering
column shifter assembly. Reinstall the
“press in pin” with a small hammer.
Pay close attention to the orientation of
the adapter. It should be installed so
that the angled face faces the dash and
the flat side faces the driver. The
tapered screw hole should point down.
The shift lever supplied with this kit has
a rubber boot already installed on it,
however it will not fit the truck as it is.
Cut off the hard plastic section leaving
only the triangular shaped rubber boot.

2003-2004 Models Only
As the early model 6.0L trucks had the
Tow/Haul indicator inside the shift lever
rather than in the instrument cluster, it
is necessary to add a separate
indicator lamp.
Drill a 1/4" hole to mount the supplied
LED in the location shown. The LED
installation location should be visible to
the driver.
2003-2004 Models Only
Stick on the Tow/Haul decal supplied
with the kit, centered over the mounting
hole.
Insert the led wires through the hole
and install LED.
2003-2004 Models Only
Separate the red and black wires from
the shifter harness and cut off the heat
shrink ends. Strip the wire ends.

The shift lever wiring must be carefully
secured to reduce chances of failure
due to pinching or chafing.
Move the shift lever all the way to 1st
and secure the shifter wiring so that it
will not be too tight in this position.
Move the shift lever through the gears
and make sure the wire does not get
pinched.
Suggested wire tie locations shown.
Flip the rubber boot back down onto
the steering column. Slide it down the
shifter handle.
NOTE: The boot may appear a bit too
large at first, but it should not be
trimmed until tested for fitment. The
large boot size helps ensure it will not
pop out when the shift lever is moved.
Tap Shifter Display
The BD TapShifter display module may
be mounted in any desired location that
the wires will reach. The following
instructions are the suggested normal
installation method.

Route the display module wiring up
from below the dashboard to the top of
the steering column. Reinstall the
column covers and reinstall ignition
lock cylinder by inserting it back into
the column.
Plug the display module into the wiring
harness and stick it down with the
supplied double sided tape.
This location for the display is generally
suggested as it does not block the
gauges for most driving positions.
The installer may choose a different
location if it suits them better. The
display wires can also be extended if
desired.
OBD Connection
Remove the two 7mm mounting screws
from the OE connector and install the
BD connector in place.
Connect the OBD connector from the
wiring harness to the vehicles OBD
connector.
IMPORTANT: If flash programming the
ECM, PCM or FICM disconnect the
TapShifter from the OBD connection.
The OBD connection can be left in place if simply changing tune “power levels” on
the fly, but if left connected during an ECM/PCM/FICM flash program/update it will
cause the connection to be interrupted. If this is a concern, the original OBD
connector can be left in place and the TapShifter wiring tied out of the way. This way
it will be obvious to others that there is a device connected to the OBD port.

Optional VVB Switch Wiring
This TapShifter kit has a built in “VVB” exhaust brake function that closes the
turbocharger turbine housing vanes when the throttle is released to aid in
deceleration. By default this is active whenever the tap shifter is turned on. If the
operator wishes to be able to control this function manually, a very simple wiring
modification can be made in the kits wiring harness at the module.
To enable the VVB, 12 volt power must be fed to the module through pin 12 of the
black connector. The wiring harness comes with a short pink jumper wire installed
between pins 11 and 12 to enable the feature all the time. The installer may install a
switch or integrate it with the Ford Up-fitter switches if desired. See wiring diagrams
below.
Always enabled – Connect pins 11 and 12

User Adjustments
The BD Tap Shifter is designed to work out of the box with no configuration needed,
but for some applications it may be desirable to adjust the shift settings. To adjust the
shift pattern, turn the ignition on and put the shift lever in Park (P). Then, press and
hold the up shift + button until the BD gear display illuminates (about five seconds).
The number indicated is the shift strategy selected; the display will show 1+5 and 2+5
for mode 6 and 7 respectively. To change the setting, press the up shift + button to
cycle through the modes available. The new setting will be stored in the modules
memory. The shift strategies are listed below.
1 – Default
This is the normal mode the module is set to when it
leaves the factory. Normal upshifts, downshifts, kickdowns, lockup and tow/haul functions are active.
Intended for most vehicle installations.
Includes modified lockup strategy for improved
engine braking in 3rd-5th.
2 – Lower shift points 10% Same as mode 1, but shifts occur sooner.
3 – Raise shift points 10%
Same as mode 1, but shifts occur later.
4 – Raise shift points 20%
Same as mode 1, but shifts occur later.
5 – Raise shift points 30%
Same as mode 1, but shifts occur later.
6 – Semi-manual mode
Upshifts allowed at very low speeds, no kick-downs.
Stock lockup strategy.
7 – Manual/Race mode
Manual control of all shifts and torque converter
lockup in ALL gears by using the tow/haul switch.
This allows the truck to start in 2nd or 3rd gear. 4th
and 5th gears cannot be attained until the truck
reaches minimum speeds. Lockup engagement is
firmer than in the other modes.
Note: Using lockup in lower gears will cause
harsh shifting characteristics.
Compatibility
The BD Ford 6.0 TapShifter is designed to work with all factory equipment and most
aftermarket equipment.
To re-flash/reprogram any module including the ECM, TCM or FICM, it is necessary
to disconnect the TapShifters OBD connection from the vehicle and connect the tuner
or scan tool directly to the vehicle. Disconnecting the OBD connector will simply
disable the TapShifter during the re-flash process.
Tested for compatibility with Edge CS, CTS2, Evolution, H&S MiniMaxx. Others not
yet tested. Compatible with tuners allowing on-the-fly power level changes.
When the TapShifter is turned on it will override the shift point and lockup schedule in
the TCM. Shift pressures and firmness are still determined by the TCM program.

Troubleshooting
Pressing the ‘–‘ button only lights up the Yellow and blue transmission wires
display momentarily, then it goes back hooked up backwards.
out
TapShifter does not turn on
Open module cover to view diagnostic
LEDs.
 Is the IGNITION LED lit? The module
is powered from the shift lever
connectors
switched
12V
and
grounded through the OBD connector.
 Is the DRIVE LED lit? This should light
up when the trucks shift lever is in D. If
it does not light up in D, check the
YELLOW and BLUE transmission
wiring. The TapShifter will not turn on
if the shift lever is not in D.
 Does the SHIFT LED light when
pressing the shift lever buttons? If not,
the module is not detecting the shifters
+ and – buttons. Check shift lever for
broken or chaffed wires.
 Is the CAN LED flickering or on? This
light indicates the module is receiving
data from the vehicle.
No holdback in 3rd or 4th gear
Both the coast clutch and overdrive wiring
must be correct to attain holdback in
these gears. Verify these circuits.
Transmission fault codes or
Transmission wiring harness connection
Tow/Haul lamp flashing
issue.
Range sensor fault code -> Check yellow
and blue wires from the TapShifter are
connected the correct way around.
Solenoid circuit fault code -> Check other
wires in the transmission wiring harness
and the chassis ground connection.
No VVB function
Check for VGT performance codes. A
stuck VGT turbo may have poor response
or not close the vanes fully.
12V must be fed into pin 12 of the black
connector for the module to enable the
VVB function. If it has been switched,
check switch function.
NOTE: The BLACK connector on the module must be kept plugged in or TCM fault
codes will result. The GREY connector may be unplugged without setting codes.
