Thanks guys

manual ECU.

You can wire in resistors from what I heard. I made a thread about it though, got no replies so maybe it's a myth.

Best just to find an ECU.

I'm selling a 3DAC ECU on eBay if you want a manual computer. It should suit a XG manual with smartlock if that's what you've got.

I'll agree on this. I did the one to my EF almost 3 years ago, and had no issues. I bought an EL ghia that has been converted to manual. It still has a ghia ECU in it. The car would have been converted at least 2 years ago, and it is fine as well.

I think that the EA-ED are different, but here is the link for te EF/EL conversion. In the attached PDF, there is the details of the resistor trick.
