yeah buuuttt... i plugged my na fairlane ecu into the el n the engine ran fine at idle no coughin n pingin... then when i put it in gear its like it just stayed in D or 3rd n puttin it in 1 or 2 on the manual didnt do anythin.. n it wouldnt rev ova 2000.. pluuuusss.. the power economy switch didnt light up the jewel on the dash.. so my guess was that my ecu coulnd control the el gearbox.... :D

an ea na ecu will not run in an el,,they are different as the ea na ecu does not control the transmission.

the ea to eb 1 had seperate controlers for the transmisisions.

eb 2 and above i think have combined controlers for the engine and transmission.

the series 2 and some series 1 ea's have the 4 speed electronic boxes but have a serperate transmission control module {tcm} and the {ecu} electronic control unit controls the engine only.

the later e series have a combined engine/transmission controler in the ecu.

thus why an early model ecu will not run a later model vehicle and vis versa,with out major wireing mods.

i think it was ea series 2 to somewhere in the eb series that had the two controlers,from late eb on they had the combined ECU's,i think.

someone will expand on this.

hope that explains it a bit better.

EBII still had a separate ECU for the box. I think the EF was the first to have a combined ECU for engine & box.
All 4sp auto's in the falcs are electronic.

Wrong. EB2 had the combined ecu in the sixes. All V8s have a separate auto ecu.

While you can't run a later model car with the EA ECU you can put a later model auto box in an EA an it will work fine as the separate auto ecu will runit.
