No - the EF uses coilpack (EDIS - Electronic Distributorless Ignition System) and the ECU connector is different.

EL went back to dizzy and the ECU has same connector as ED.

An EL ECU will plug straight in and run the car but the EL ECU is programmed for Broadband Manifold so timing and fuel won't be quite right for the ED - I don't actually know whether you'd lose performance or how much, but:

- I know that by bolting a BBM onto an ED and running it with the standard ED ECU and with the BBM locked on long runners, the low down throttle response and acceleration is fantastically better than a std EF/EL (ie. factory BBM cars) but you get pinging and powerloss very quickly so it's only any good up to 60kph so just not practical (or at least that's what happened with my ED).

- so I'd suspect that plugging an EL ECU into a std ED would enable it to run ok but it would feel very sluggish down low (not enough timing advance).

Have you considered using a J3 module to upspec your std ECU to XR6 figures? - would cost a couple hundred bucks.

Why not get an EL ecu, and then get a J3 chip with an XR6 tune on it?

The J3 chip isn't set up to work with the ED ECU, hence the need for the EL ECU.
