Hello I recently installed a second hand motor from the wreckers into my AU2 however it runs ok besides the flat spot splutter however the wreckers had told me au 1 right through to au3 are interchangeable. well now after replacing the fuel pump fuel filter and fuel injectors plus oxy sensor the problem is still there I worked it out to be the t map sensor after i was going to swap the au 2 upper bbm manifold and as i found the wiring is different. What would be my best solution to fix this?

series 1 map sensors have a another style of plug and the wiring is revered

pin a - pin4 , pin b- pin3 ect

you can use the series 2 map sensors but you will need to use the series 2 plug and reverse the wiring

Thanks it seems to run fine except for the damm flatspot or when on the highway plant your foot it surges a bit however i will get the wiring off the old motor and chuck that on and swap the upper BBM over as the au1 has 2 screws holding it in where as the au2 has one small bolt holding it on wish the wreckers mentioned this as i did ask them and also stated i knew there were a few small changes to the AU2 wireing

if you have the series 2 engine loom and map sensor , simply cut the current plug and reverse the wiring
