ah, some wiring needs to be done here,
you need to trick the ecu into thinking that it is in neutral so that you bypass the neutral safety switch
i have a bit of ilding problems in my ef, (same as yours yeah?) idles high but it does start up fine.
used some resistors and a gregories type manual to guide me through the wiring diagrams

What model falcon is yours and what model falcon did the other ecu come from??
the later e series falcons have smartlock eg( eb 2 and up) and the earlier dont..(ea and eb1)
so the later ecu's wont work on the early cars ... unless you have smartlock....

use this doco here just go to jaycar and get the resistors I used the old wires from the cannon plug and soldered the resistors to them you will know iif you have done it right because if not the thermos will run as soon as you start the car

It will take a couple of days for it to idle properly but after that it will work fine.I found it would drop revs every now and then but works well until you find a manual ecu
