The only wiring difference is the BBM Loom. Just take the loom off your EF motor, and swap it on to the EL motor. You will also have to swap over the harmonic balancer and the crank angle sensor etc.

It is quite simple really.

Swap the coil packs etc over to the EL engine - remove the dizzy etc - and use the wiring from the EF engine. That should get you going without too many dramas!

The EF and EL engine are effectively the same, the only differences are the engine mounts (where the coild packs go) and harmonic balancer. Really, it is a simple job to EF-ify an EL engine. Save yourself some money, take your time and you will do it no probs.....
