you'll be better off with a EB11 and above ECU,
then you can use an XG utes dash/engine loom.
catch Code: 3DAC

just a note there Krytox
EF uses different setup to EA-ED and EL.
i think its coil pack where as the others use a dizzy

AFAIK the 3DAC ecu wont run that engine properly.

think u need to use a EF ECU + a smartlock override thing to bypass smartlock.

theyres a guy who sells them on FF (coupe 66)

3DAC = ED 1994 4.0L Manual Smartlock 93DA-12A650-AC

for EF
4DAD 1995 Manual 94DA-12A650-AD
4DAF 1995 Manual 94DA-12A650-AF
4TAB XR6 1995 4.0L Manual
4TAC XR6 1995 4.0L Manual
4TAD XR6 Sedan 1994 Series 2 4.0L Manual 94TD-12A650-AD
5TAC XR6 4.0L Manual

This is why i said XG ute loom,
they're almost a straight swap in a XF (dash to front)

I'm using a EB ECU (3DAC) with a 95 XG smartlock Loom (dash and body) in a 91 XF Ute (carb)

I have many EF Manual ecu's but I wasn't going through the headache of using a EF ecu on a X series car when the loom is already here.

EF motor can be used on any, just change cas for a dizzy!
