Should be the same. Wire colours could possibly be different.

Your right, it might be a good idea to add it to the guide.


Could anyone tell me how much this costs?

Location: ** In the Shed! **
VIC, Australia

My manual peddle box in the " organ donor ED " is broken, so i'll see if i can write something about how to repair it. :D

Should be pulling that part out soon, possibly this weekend, as i need to repair it to take the car for a spin to see how well the engine & gearbox actually runs. Should be fine as it's only 115k kms, but i wanna drive it anyway.

Cheers

Yeah I might take the ECU with me :P and if you want it give me an offer. I do actually need to source out an EL one :( you wouldn't happen to know anyone?

Be aware that the EF high series models (those with climate control), the ECU expects certain voltages from the CC, such as fan speed/engine load/temp, etc, and of EF's the voltages are different from non CC vehicles - actually they are in reverse, e.g. 12v & 0v. So you may find some facets of CC operation may not work properly, thermos coming on , etc.
I did write a more detailed thread on it somewhere - but you might not notice anything out of the ordinary. IIRC there are a few EF owners who've gone manual with cc as well - Krytox (Andrew) is an example from memory. Might be wise to check with them to see if they've had any issues.
EL's run the same voltages all through, so no such probs there - good luck finding a manual ECU . . . .
I've got an XH manual ECU, but it gives the CC E6, E7 & E8 errors.

That's handy to know.
I have no issues with my auto ECU so far anyway. Idles perfectly, revs come back down quickly etc. It's great.

I run EL LPG ECU's in both my cars, mainly for the benefit of the LPG spark maps, and to correct the CC errors in the XH.
The only thing is that they are auto only.

I've found they run fine, both in performance and fuel consumption.
