depends,

1: if your swapping over all of your accessories, all you need is an EA waterpump and timing cover, re use your old balancer tensioner etc

2: If your going to the the serpentine setup (but using your old intake) youll also need an XH tensioner

3: If your going serpentine AND going BBM, you need to f**k around with the pedal box, acc cable and cruise if fitted, then you have to get the BBM to switch and run properly.

I suggest option 1 or 2 - even though XH tensioners are hard to find (after hearing the troubles adrian had doing mine im glad i didnt do it myself)

your computer and looms should be fine to run the EL motor (if you go BBM some wires on the injector/TB loom need to be lengthened)
