Hi All,

Would like to install a trip computer into my EB which is running an aftermarket ECU.

The tech doc (http://www.fordmods.com/forums/EA-ED-Tr ... l-d82.html) mentions a wire to the EECIV, which obviously I don't have!

Is there any way around this?

I really only want the clock, but if it's easy enough, I'll go the trip computer instead.

Appreciate any advice!

Thanks,

Justin.

just wire it up as per the doco..except insted of using pin 34 from the ecu.
you can use the injector pulse line from your current ecu..

Thanks mate!

Although I don't really care, out of curiosity, would the trip computer remain at all accurate given the non standard injectors?

i assume the trip comp would be calibrated to std specs..
but i guess you would still get an estimate
