in 14 hours

Gave the car a quick crank to see if everything was okay and then next time it fired up.

I removed all the casting imperfections by porting the manifold upto 60mm from the injector back.

I am running a EL XR6 ECU and map with a Unichip still programmed for the cam and log manifold, I suspect the Unichip is the reason the issues.

Only 2 issues I have are :-

Engine is running lean and idle is slow to return to base idle, ect.

Electric Fans are not working but are wired correct ( Im a sparky).

Time to make a call and visit my nearest Unichip tuner.


Once the engine warms up

mmm i wanna put the el one on my eb, but the fact that i have to find an el manual ecu to do it is stopping me, also the whole smartlock thing cos my car is pre smartlock by a couple of months :(. Very nice job tho and it shud be alot better then havin the open pod sitting there.

Hey dude, nice work.
I'm having the same problem with the fans not working off the ECU.

Dude, with the unichip im 99% sure they are different chips from ECC IV to ECC V. That is what the unichip rep at gosford told me cause I did the conversion with the ECC IV and was going to change computers, but couldnt for that reason

Sorry mate, i didnt read your first post correctly. I thought you had swaped with ECMs with the conversion, but you already were running the ECC V with the long runners.

My appologies

I did swap the ECU from EEC IV to EEC V, it seems to be running, I also have the pinout sheet for the Unichip and it is an "A" type chip for both ECU's, the loom is the same, the base parameters are the same, it shouldn't be a problem, just some tuning.
