You cannot use an EL ECU, has to be an EF ECU, EF needs the coil pack control, el was dizzy. gear box with e series bell housing and all associated bits, clutch cable, you can either use a J3 chip on the EF ECU or do the resister trick, plenty of info on the resister trick on this site if you have a quick search around.

Get yourself a Mal Wood pin rather than the pedal box, it saves having to pull the dash out.

here is thread on it

post848118.html

2 pictures half way down. Pretty much shows you what it is. The pin will be located to the left of the pedal box where there is a hole in the pedal box frame. You can't miss it. New updated Malwood pin design comes with a large metal plate to strengthen the box because some people have had the pedal box break/crack.
