Back Again Fellas,

A mechanical mate told me that fitting a Control Unit from an XR8 5ltr could also give the beast a bit more grunt. But up here, XR8's in wrecking yards are hard to come by. So what is a going price, say from a wrecking yard, a used one from the trading post, or a new one (NOT ford Genuine!!!!!!, OUCH!). and if i do find and XR8 in the Wrecking yard, which little box would I be looking for?? The one behind the passangerside, side footwell cover?? Is there any hard troubles in the way of reseting any electrics after installation, or is it just plug-in and turn the key? Would it effect the operation of the LPG?? (I don't think so). Is the any extra Wires or so, or any other upgrades that need to done?

Sorry for all the questions. but its better to know than having it blow up in my face, or thinking about them, and reposting 15 times.

Cheers,
Shannan,

The units for the V8's are the same for the DA-NC & EB-ED
