I have an ea falcon with bbm manifold and have just got an el ecu with a smartlock bypass module, does anyone know if the el ecu will run my car

Hey,

I'm no expert, but i believe it should run ok, there could be some teething problems, but as i understand it, the EL ecu is for the BBM and the thermo fans operation. I guess if u have matched the gearbox type with the ecu then it should be plain sailing. I am having some issues with my EL 4.0L in my Maverick, hopefully the auto elec will sort it out on Monday. Who knows i might get lucky and it might start for me on Sunday.

Cheers

Daz

Well i will confirm that it does work, after 30 minutes i had the ea running on the el ecu, just add 2 wires 3 if you want thermo fans and away u go, well you must use a smart lock bypass aswell which i will be making for about $60.00 very soon

Hey,

Good on you getting it running. Yes i have got a smartlock bypass, which i could've made myself also, as i believe the are just a regulated power supply, to feed the 6V, i think, to the ecu.
I am not going to use the ecu for the thermo fans, to many relays to hook up. I have a fan controller i made which uses a thermistor to detect the amount of heat and switch a relay at any preset temperature. I am going to have one fan on all the time (the slow one), then when it gets hot, switch over to the two fans together.

Cheers

Daz
