Thumbs up ED Completed spontainious BBM conversion. (warning long)

Hi all, well as the title of the thread suggests, tibbo and myself with plety 'O' help from scarecrow420(OCA) have converted my car from el-stocko intake manifold to an EL Dual Runner System woot.

All in all it went very well, with the engine starting and idleing fine in 1 and a bit days. We started on Sunday at 17:30 and started the car first time at 21:05 the next day. While this seems like a long time we took it pretty casually taking time to polish the cover a bit and spray a few things here and there. Each day had its various wierd mission or bastard job ie day one ended when there was a bastard wire connection that we were all to tired to attempt.

Day two's problem was the last three manifold bolts that were a bisnatch to get to and took ages due to the wonderful 1/3 turn we got weeee and also i picked the wrong fuel lines as i figured the regulator was at the start of flow whoops so for punishment i copped a face full of fuel and the wall copped it too, I couldnt help but laugh as i felt and pulled may way out from under the car with fuel poolled in my eye sockets, up my nose and in my mouth. I even knew it was coming and closed my eyes and put my face out as far as i could but to no avail. but it ran well with no obvious problems and we called it a night with just the pedel to reattach and accel cable to mount to rocker cover.

Here is Day 3's problem. Go to get a bolt for cable bracket from ford and get the reply sorry mate it's a non-servicable part, we dont have any. I gave him a dismayed look and a what the **** you dont even have one lying around and he is like nup. so it takes me most of the day to get a bolt coz of airport duties, delays and lost luggage BAH!!!!!. get back fit it all ang go for a drive...

THE REWARD... OMFG it goes like shit on a shovel, so much pickup and fuel econ is even better on initial indications and this is with it locked in Long runner position. If i blip the throttle while going sixty im instantly going 80 so this may be a problem points wise This mod is by far the best mod that has been done and the best part is we did it ourselves.

Down the track I would like to set this up properly using an EL ECU. Has anyone done this, Soxx maybe with your XH. What would I need apart from the ECU, im thinking a knock sensor but is there anything else more involved that im missing. I will post up some pics in a sec.

Re: ED Completed spontainious BBM conversion. (warning long)

yeah best i can see, you have all ea gear still being used, only change appears to be intake tube, air box, manifold, thermostat etc ?

Did you just rebend the dipstick tube for the oil ?

Re: ED Completed spontainious BBM conversion. (warning long)

we used:-

off an EL:
The mainfold
Airbox
Upper thermostat housing
Top radiator hose
Fuel Rail
Fuel lines with a clamp onto the underbody factory steel lines
Alloy rocker cover and gasket <-- of course
Rubber concertina joiner (although AU is the same)
Oil filler tube (which reminds me to check the dipstick lengths)
**EL throttle cable and bracket
**EL stepper motor or isc
** not installed in these piccies as we just wanted to do a test start to check for vacuum leaks etc

AU intake pipe

The ED bits we reused:-
The ED loom
6pacs original injectors and
10mm ignition leads
Lower thermostat housing as it had 2 more sensors mounted in it than the EL one
The steel heater pipe that runs under the manifild due to the EL being too hard to get out..
ED dome nuts for fastening the rocker cover with grommits and washers fitted

All in all a great little mod that seems to compliment the crazy cam 6pac runs in this beast

It'll be one of those "smack yourself on the head when you find out" things. Things like this make me see red.

Re: ED Completed spontainious BBM conversion. (warning long)

As for whats wrong

Ive noticed in those pics the throttle cables arnt connected.
It no longer has the 'strut' bar, and instead for some reason, the strut bar brackets are mounted to the rocker cover.
