It looks like the EL missed out on a few good bits for same reason.

I heard two differant stories on this, firstly "EF coil pack were unreliable" I don't know if this is true, haven't heard anyone complain about them yet.

Secondly Ford brought out the EL as a update of the EF without adding any extra costs to it. So they cut corners to keep the price down.
