i think all u need is the ECU that suits the engine. like if the engine came out of an ED then get an auto ED ECU. I think the 4 speed tranny are the same from EA - EL? correct me if im wrong.

phong =P~

I have just transplanted the complete motor, gearbox & ecu (dash, smartlock etc) into my mefi EA (non-smartlock). It was a BIG job taking almost three solid weeks. I had a complete car to take the motor, loom etc from. I could not think what the job would be like without the two cars side by side.

my suggestion - without the complete kit don't bother - just install the motor and ecu with existing ecu. (I do ofcourse have a spare ea multipoint intake and ecu & trans ecu)

However something to think about - the car really hauls now - even compared to my EF Fairmont a few Kg lighter helps
