I want to change the ECU in my EL for another one. (car runs ruff as guts, has had new plugs, leads, cap and rotor button, TB clean, injector clean has only done 82,000Kms but still runs like s**t and drinks the juice) I was hoping and ecu change would fix it.

So question one is Can I just un plug the old one and plug in another one? or will I need to having the timing and stuff reset?

Qusetion 2 is does anybody know of a place in Perth that is good at sorting out the problems with these things. I had it in at range ford in Maddington (where the car was sold new and has had every service done since, and they weren't much help, runs worse now than before).

Cheers.

Have you run diagnostics on the ecu you have now?

Yes you can just unplug the old one and plug a new one in.
