Re: EF/EL Motor in a ED.
Get an EL engine, don't even think about running an EF engine in there.
It'll bolt straight in, use the EL ECU and add wires to the ED looms for the thermofans, knock sensor and BBM.
Then your only issue will be the A/C lines, the compressors are different.
Only problem is trip computer wont work properly, if you have one.
Smartlock will work fine, I'm running an EL ECU in my EBII.
