EEC-4 Capabilities

Could the aformentioned chip control an AU gas engine? since there is no injector control, and several other functions would also be missing when compared to a petrol engine, I figure there may be a chance of it working.

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

Is the Au engine staying in an AU, or you putting it in a E-series car with a EEC-IV :0)

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

I am currently looking at replacing my engine, I have two choices, either another ED engine or upgrading to a better engine. The only requirement is that I get an engine that is suitable to run gas in. The Au engine from all accounts has a better valvetrain and bottom end, so if it can be installed with minimal effort, I might do that instead.

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

Yes it can, just bolt your head and everything else to it, troutman is currently doing this project so PM him some questions, you will find his threads in e-series general discussion.

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

So what is the diference between the heads, I would have thought that all the wiring would have been the same. I would'nt be using the BBM manifold, because my computer can't control it, I thought I read that my ED manifold would bolt up to it.

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

I would only put an AU engine in if I can put the whole engine in, inc head, however I do not want to re-wire the whole car to fit the EEC-5 in to control it. That is why I want to see if the EEC-4 will have any effect, is there any extra wiring that goes to the AU engine when comared with an ED engine? If so what is it for?

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

I tend to feel that STock the au. non gas head is not as good as ef/el heads for gas work..

THe lifters have less travel which only requires the valves to sink very slighlty into the head before they ride the cam and hold the valves open the ef/el motors with 2:1 rockers allow more travel before they play up.. Bottem en the au is a winner

Re: EEC-4 Capabilities

Just use the current manifolds on the AU engine and you'll be right - as far as i know regarding the engine management.
