hi
its pretty straight forward except for the extra wires to run to the ecu ect
are you going to use a el ecu??
but dont forget to change the water pipe from the water pump and water neck + heater hoses aswell as the eb ones will hit the bbm..

oh and rocker cover as the ef/el one has the mounting point for the throttle cable..
and your better off changing the throttle pedal aswell..due to different lever ratio.
the eb one will work but your pedal will sit high..

other than that its all pretty much bolt on..
remember that the eb timing mark is different to the ef..
its no biggy you just need to re-mark the balancer or change the timing cover...

hi troyman i'm using my ecu (ea manual )as far as the wiring go i'm extending the one's for throtle and idle sensors and will use a jaycar switch for the flaps in the bbm.

when you say water neck are talking about the one under the thermostat housing ? . i have the main water pipe the one from the pump and heater hoses

and for the timing i though it would'nt change seeing i'm not touching the ignition side of things.

please correct me if i'm wrong

:shock:

imo if your goin to do the bbm conversion you should use the el ecu..
because the el ecu has different fuel and timing maps to suit the manifold.
as you wont get any gains from the bbm manifold itself...(except for looks)
but thats up to you..

with the water neck, you need the lower housing with the pipe and the neck itself and the el upper radiator hose to make room for the snorkle...
with using the ea ecu you may find that the timing will need to be adjusted as with the bbm on long runners the engine may ping.. thats why i recomend using the el ecu..

with the timing mark ignore that.. i thought you might of been doing the serpentine belt conversion aswell...
