el ecu is in. i have run those 2 wires (blue and blue white) from the ecu. at the moment my thermos are a bit weird. with aircon on full i have both fans on fast. however when the aircon is off and the car gets hot only 1 fan comes on and its fast. I think i'll have to screw around with the wiring and stuff so that i can get the different fan speeds.

Good news. I got the thermos all working 100% thanks to benno.

Now I have a different problem. My car appears to be missing a fair bit when under load. I have used new leads and dizzy cap and I have re-gapped the spark plugs. I thought maybe my timing is out so I adjusted the timing with a timing light but on the AU motors they don't have a 10deg BTDC mark. So its hard to accurately set the base timing. Could anyone let me know any way to correct this?

P.S I wanted to try buying new spark plugs today but they cost $25 each! THe ones used in AU3 motors are iridium and cost heaps more than the older ones.
