Ok so i couldn't find this so i post a new topic. I am thinking of sticking my flash tuned EL tickford engine into a EF fairmont Ghia (nice upgrade from my EB mont). I want to use my dizzy not the EF coilpack set up. Basically all i want to know is, i want to change the engine loom etc so i can run My EL tickford ECU with my EL engine. Can i do this? IS it lot of mucking around? Do i just change the engine loom or more?? Dont know myself that why i ask the FM boys.

What do you think??

Cheers Clint :D

I think you will find that in addition to swapping in the EL engine loom, you may also need to swap in the EL Dash loom and BEM etc. The dash would have to come out anyway for the Engine Loom swap.

I guess you already know the different ecu's have different pins, and therefore different harnesses, making it a bit of a task.

I believe the EF series 1 ghia's didn't have tickford running gear, but series 2 did.
