Yeah you can use shiftkits like the later E-series unless you're referring to an EAI, which has a 3spd Borg Warner gearbox and isn't controlled by a computer, so you won't be able to use the shiftkit with that one.

I've heard that EAII abd EBI 6 cylinders use a TCM (Transmission Control Module) so the wires you'll need to intercept may be different to ECU-controlled versions.

Another thing to note is that the EF uses a different ECU wiring loom, is has a num,ber of extra pins over the EA-ED and EL, so if you're following a guide to wire up the shiftkit you may get the wrong wires.


What model car do you have?

Also take a look here:
