Would the starter position be an issue?

Oh, and screw the BF PCM :P I thought of it and crossed it out immediately.


Yes except BA-up Falcons don't use that starter position you see there.
They have a starter that pokes in from the LH side of the bellhousing.
You'd have to modify the bell to take your LH starter that comes from the front.

I'd be more concerned with fitting it physically, rather than controlling it.

It's got it's own internal controller, that needs various engine/speed inputs from the CAN bus. You'd need to make something to take the speedo and tacho signals from your AU ECU, convert them onto a CAN bus signal, and bam it'll run.

Get a ZF shifter from a BF, add the cable shifter, wire up power to it.

Hmm, so if I can get it to fit, you'll sort out the comms for me? :) How much time would it take?

I know what's required (roughly), but it's beyond my skill level.
