Hi guys,have done a barra conversion in my XG ute but need to know what the ecu needs to know when to change gears correctly, I've used the sequential shifter aswell as tacho module for EB sports cluster-xg extention housing & speedo, so the ecu has no speed or tacho input - I'm assuming this is the problem,can anyone give me a bit of advice about this-would be really appreciated, cheers, Johnny.
P.S-can anyone point me in the right direction to a BA FALCON UTE NON-ABS -ECU Pinout, am having a hard time finding non abs pinouts at all.

Ok so normally the BA gets the VSS from the ABS & from what I can tell I should be able to change the ECU to run non ABS (with HP tuner)then run 1 or 2 wires from XG speedo sender to the ECU, Anyone know which of the three speedo wires I need to use and which pin/s it goes to on the BA ECU,cheers, Johnny.

Hey guys-even thou nobody replied (they probably assumed I'm a moron), grannyfalcon82/Bayden helped me work it out-wish I was as switched on as he is at his age, anyway for anyone else doing the same it's the white wire from the speedo sender to ECU pin B07, gears change ok (needs a few adjustments)-tiptronic working aswell,
Pic here shows what to change-will try to work out shifts and update asap, cheers, Johnny.

Hi Mad2 thanks mate -I appreciate that, so Ive sorted the speedo input-turns out that all the transducers from XF on are 10 pulse per revolution and before XF are 8 pulse (if any one can confirm/correct this) so changed it to 10 & used a online tyre/wheel calculator and came up with 788.59 tyre revolutions per mile (for my tyre size), shifts are alot better but still a bit weird between 3rd & 4th-so still some fine tuning, but drove it back from the far north coast 7-8 hour drive mainly using the sports shift or performance mode and have to say it was a pleasure to drive-fuel economy was really good compared to the old donk (the old xg engine wasn't too bad on fuel) but the dohc engine gives very good economy, the engine with the sports exhaust that I already had on the XG and new extractors (cat had to be lengthened)+the massive K&N pod filter and the new underdrive kit-throttle response is really good and induction noise has a very nice note.
Will be doing a bit of a build thread in the next few weeks in the garage (just getting a couple of things out of the way first) so I'll try and make it as informative as possible.
Cheers, Johnny.
