no , not unless you use the whole ef wireing loom and coil packs as ef ecu has 104 pins and eb ecu has 60 pins..

but you can use a el ecu with the eb loom as el has a dizzy set up and the ecu has 60 pins like eb

Depends.
You will need to for some things:
-bbm
-thermos
-knock sensor
-coolant sensor (depending)

The Troydude is probably the best with this seeing as he has done it. Or did you use a whole loom Troy?

no, in my case i used the ed loom and extended the tps and isc wires to the throttle body, added a couple of wires to the ecu plug for the bbm solinoid and knock sensor and ran them through to the engine bay..
