Thanks Bottlejack - I am lucky to have a friend who does the electrical for a living and does strange things like putting a Lexus V8 into an MX5 and twin turbo 6's into Toyota Surfs (Still using 4WD). His latest is a GSXR 1100 into a golf cart. I would post pics - but its not Ford so wouldn't dare. This is pretty straight forward for him, but I am trying to make it as easy as poss!

Au six is a sweet runner. Since when did they have 182 kw?? Put something with a bit more character in it to match the wicked shape.

OK - complete c**k-up my end, its not an AU motor... it's a BA motor (Barra 182). From what I have read, I may have to go to an AU though because my guy is good, but it looks like you need a PHD to wire up the ECU on the BA!
If anyone has the pin-out for either engine (I can get either) a BA or an AU then please let me know. There are already quite a few forums on retro-fitting the engine itself so I will do my research rather than getting it repeated here. Besides... a 2003 BA motor in a 1978 XC? I can't find anyone who has done it before! I will watch the X-series forums as I am pretty sure the are a few AU to XF/XG conversions out there.
If it gets too hard (like it isn't already) then maybe an AU turbo is a good idea.

The BA motor is pretty much the same length as a AU. just a bit taller. and theyres AU motors in X series floating around..

BPT motorsport over here can wire up BA motors to run standalone with their ECU tweeking machine.

it would proberly be easier into a X series because theyres not the headache of cruise controll.. abs.. and some other crazy gadgets that appear in new cars.

theyre should be a tuner fella over in NZ that could flash it i hope.


[QUOTE=MMD]Hi i am interested in knowing if you guys are capable of reprogramming the BA PCM to run stand alone.
Looking at doing a engine transplant want to run BA ECU.
Been told by some people you guys are able to do it.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=gtp]Hi There,

Yes we have done the BA and BF PCM's to run stand alone and kit cars and engine transplants.

easy process.
