Re: help

You do NOT need smartlock, just make sure you get a non-smartlock ECU for the MPI. Many EA's had this, although I *think* the 30th anniversary models used smartlock.

Anyway, if this wrecker thinks you have to have smartlock for MPFI, I'd seriously question paying him to install things, because he obviously knows very little about these cars...
