Hello

On the weekend when we put the EL engine in, the standard EB map sensor caused the car to pop and miss at around 2500 rpm. It just wouldn't rev above that. I changed to the Map Sensor that came with the EL engine and everything fixed itself.

So I suggest swapping the Map sensor to and EL one.

hi
i dont think the injectors would make that much difference. i went from ea mpfi injectors to el injectors and im now using au injectors...
the only difference is the car has more responce with the au injectors.

i would try another map sensor anyway..
it seemed to work for benj.

but in saying that im still using the ea map sensor with no probs.

I will add that in my case I think we crushed the EB one putting the engine in. But yours could be damaged too.
