Taking a while is it not?


Yeah he's been busy and I won't have time until end of year uni exams finish to install it anyhow, so I havn't pushed for it yet.

AFAIK the EF is wired up to suit and the AU having the same coil pack should be very close to an ECU swap.
I just need the full Engine loom diagrams for both and I can start experimenting. In fact since I have a spare EF car. I have the loom to work on. I might have to get a loom from and AU and just fit that instead?


It'd definately be nice to get the AU ECU running in EF's without too much effort.

A banjo adapter is used to connect it inline with the oil pressure sensor on the side of the block under the inlet manifold.

If you have the wreck then put the ECU and loom in from the donar.
Both seem to be smartlock and not smartshield so the makes life easier for you to do this.
