around the middle of the cover. if im not mistaken its the crank sensor. easier to do out of the car. wouldnt imagine they'd be different.

Your EF crank sensor and harmonic balancer will bolt straight on to your EL motor.
No need to change the timing cover. Fit a new crank seal to the timing cover tho.

dumb question but, couldnt u put your ef injection stuff on the el motor and revert it to coil pack and f**k the dizzy off,

hell of alot easier and less stuffing around, instead of rewiring nearly the whole engine bay

Theres f**k all diff between the dizzy and the coil pack for preformance unless you wanna beable to set the timing your self

That is what he is doing, he is changing the engine loom.

Just a quick question, if you swapped all the injection s**t over etc, im guessin you will be running the el ecu in the ef,
