The EBII/ED MPFI bits should not be hard to come by these days.
Yes, you will need the items you listed.
You will need the whole engine loom and matching EECIV from an ED/EBII along with the manifold, aircleaner, etc.
Another alternative is to install the EL manifold. This would deliver a better gain than the EBII/ED and be better value-for-money versus effort involved.
The EL used a distributer so the conversion is not more complex than to an EBII/ED MPFI.
The EL manifold will deliver better low end torque than the EBII/ED MPFI and slightly better top end performance. (The EF and EL manifolds are the same but the EECs are different as the EL uses a dizzie).
I am currently planning to go from ED MPFI to EL intake manifold. I will be "tacking" the extra EL wiring (knock sensor, vac control for the butterflies, thermofan control, etc) into the existing ED loom in my case.
I picked up the manifold, vac switch and loom for $100 a few weeks ago (no throttle body or injectors).
The XR family ---->
Muzza: a XR8 AU seriesIII...bog standard :)
TBH: (the better half) drives an ED XR6 wagon (Mock Dev 4 160rwkw, JMM extractors, 4 electric windows, Ghia door panels in XR trim, rear head & arm rests in XR trim, Momo s/wheel with Cruise, EL thermos, EBGT wheels, etc) things to come soon = EECV upgrade.
Map sensors are the same, leave the cfi one. The difference between the MPI dizzy and CFI is that the CFI has 6 equal lenght vanes to provide the PIP signal. Since the injectors are common to all cylinders it oesnt need to know when #1 is TDC. MPI has a smaller reference vane so the ecu can determine when to fire the 2 banks of injectors. The CFI one can be modified by removing the dowel in the drive gear and pullng the shaft out and filing down the appropriate vane.
If you go for an EL manifold just make sure that the metal pipe from the water pump that supplies the heater will clear the manifold. EF and EL ones are different but you might get away with it.
Don't change your loom. Waste of time really when it take at tops 30 mins to change the wiring. Use any MPI 3.9 ecu. So anything from EA - EB1. Dont use a 4.0 auto.
