hi
the easiest way is to use the eb loom (mark what wires go where) and what you do is put the eb loom onto the ef/el manifold connect the injectors up the same as they were on the eb one .. and the wires that went to the eb throttle body are. the tps and isc ..now you have to run them from the front of the loom to the centre of the loom and up to the ef throttle body by extending them.. you can use the tps and isc from the eb manifold if you want..
but some have different plugs but the wire colours should be the same..
and every thing else will connect the same as the eb ones..
and the el ecu will plug straight into the eb loom.. but ef has a different plug...

also you will have to run some new wires to your ecu for the bbm switch..
most of its explaned in the first post..

but if you have any probs or questions just let me know...

hi
i have no problems with the idle being rough.. if your using a auto ecu in a manual you will have to fit 2 resistors to trick the ecu..
but otherwise i have had no problems with idle..the isc is working ok and it idles good...
as for the cruise controle i think you would have to change the set up on the engine to the ef/el set up otherwise the rest should be ok.... but im not 100% on the cruise controle..

Just a question about your EL air box what did you do with the charcoal cansister and hoses?I was thinking about going from pod back to panel and better cold air.By the way good effort.

hi
at first the hoses were slightly squashed by the air box
but i ended up drilled 2 holes a little lower and used a couple gromits and fed the hoses through ..
