From what I have seen here, the BBM goes straight on but
an EL ECU is needed to run it properly.

Look at this thread by Troyman that details work of an AU engine going
into an EA. There are notes there on the BBM issues.

Also, I copied these notes from this thread...

""EL to EA-ED
The EA-ED ECU is not tuned for the broadband manifold and will not be able to switch the
runners at 3800rpm. There are 3 options for this conversion
1. Use the EA-ED manifolds, leave everything else the same
2. Use the EL engine complete with ECU and loom
3. Fit EL engine with EA-ED ecu and use a RPM switch to change the runners at
3800 rpm. This will get the runners switching but the tune will still be out. It is the
timing that seems to be most affected resulting in either poorer low end performance or
pinging on short runners. ""

i used a unichip and a switch to turn the bbm on is very hard to use a el ecu in a eb2 or ed & to get it to work is a lot of work

i wouldnt say that its alot of work.lol
the ecu plugs straight in,
you need to add a couple of wires to the ecu pins for the bbm switch,
the knock sensor is not nesesary,so you dont have to add wires if you dont want..
iv got a el ecu in my ed and there was just a few wires i added for the bbm switch and knock sensor..
and everything works fine!!
so why is it so hard to use a el ecu in a eb or ed..??????????
