BA ecu retro fit

just wondering if it would be possible to fit a BA ecu to an E series/au engine.
i know that the GM delco ecu can be fitted to just about any engine with the kalmaker software... i was wondering if with the BA EDIT/flash programer would it be possible to use the ecu on say an AU V8 to have full control over things.
I think that the drive by wire throttle body would pose a problem...

Does anybody know if this is possible?

It is possible to use the delco ecu but it is not sequential injection it fires it in 2 banks of 4. I would use a ford ecu and tweecer before i changed to a Delco. Castle auto electrics sell Delco conversions for fords but you have to get the distributor modified.


Here is a copy of the emails i sent to injection connection in WA RE: using Kalmaker/delco on my Efi windsor into XW conversion. My problem is the coil packs as i want to keep it DIS.


Hi ben, The LT5 coilpaks are approx 1500 to $2000
You will have to fabricate crank trigger
The Brock Shop should be able to help but I dont have there no.
You will need Idle Air Control adaptor block to run GM IAC
TPS is fine
Not sure about coolant and air temp sensors
o2 will have to be GM
You budget should be close

Hi Alan,
I want to keep it a DIS.what sensors can i retain from the
ford set-up it has a 36-1 trigger and a cam position sensor.
Or do i need to make up a trigger wheel (as shownn on the
website). A side from the cost of the coils/ignition modules
what other items do i need to purchase. Throttle position?
idle air control? How much are the LT5 coils/ignition
modules? Do you know an approx cost and what is involved
with wiring it all up. How much/long would it take for somebody to tune it. Is there anyboody in Brisbane you
reccommend i talk to. I only want to spend $3000-3500 for
the ECU and tuning i am able to do the wiring/install.
Thanking you
Ben Cameron.

Hi Ben, The trouble is the Ford coilpaks use a different
setup to GM, which
is a buggar as these systems are cheap in USA.
The only way to use delco isto use dissy or use LT5
Corvette coilpaks which
are expensive.
The rest is easy, its the coilpaks that make it tricky

Hi,
i am putting a 2000 ford v8 Windsor into my manual XW. THe
engine uses coil packs fired in wasted spark. I am at the
stage now where I am looking at ECU's to run the engine. I
was wondering if you could tell me if it is possible to
run the engine with a Delco ecu and whats is involved in
setting it up. I am Able to do the wiring install but would
probably have to get somebody to do the tuning.
I have read you website and it looks like a great system.

The engine has been rebuilt with a Mild cam-Duration
at .050 215 int 224 exh lobe sep 114.0 Valve lift 512/512.Ported GT40P
heads Custom tri-y's Duel 2.5 exhust 9.8:1 comp. Close ratio manual.

What would be the approx cost of the parts needed to convert
to a delco ecu. any information or somebaody i could
contactin the brisbane/south east QLD region would be
appreciated.

Hi


AU and BA falcon ECU need to be Data LInked if removed and placed into there respective vehicles ,they have alot of modules within the vehicle and need dedicated scantools to link them to there own models.

IE ; if replacing a ECU from a wrecker the same model from a BA falcon the system needs to be datalinked or else the vehicle will not start


SO do you homework on the conversion might be a costly exercises

Re: BA ecu retro fit

why play with delco or ba pcm when its cheaper to get an aftermarket ecu with better results!!!

as an example a EMS fitted and tuned for $2200

better perfomance and economy

either way changing pcm or ecu will entail epa tests to keep legal so where is the benefit?

Not QLD it is very unlikely to get EPA tested. But things might change in the future...

The best was to decrease emissions is to keep putting up the price of fuel then ppl wont be able to afford to drive lol.
