EF/EL Motor in a ED.

Okay call, my ED motor is getting a little on the old side. (I6), I've found an EF/EL motor that I want to drop into its place. ..

How much stuffing around will it be? Will have to change the ECU? what about the loom etc? does everything else plug and play? I know I'll need the EF/EL airbox,

Did not think there was that much of a difference between the ED motors and the EF/EL motors.

How about fans? i.e. will I need to get the thermo fans for it too?

Please let me know of anything else I will need to do to change it ... it will been dropping into a 5spd manual ...

And also, will the ED smartlock system work with the EF/EL ECU?

Thanks ppls :)

Antony.

Re: EF/EL Motor in a ED.

Dpends on wether it is complete with accessories or just a short motor?..
The EL would be easier, the dizzie and standard coil mean the car will run with the ED EEC IV.. The BBM and thermos won't work until you update the ECU but your old ECU will run the car..

You can change the harmonic balancer, water pump etc to keep the v belts and clutch fan set up if you dont want to convert it all over to serpentine, depends on weather you have the EL A/C compressor and alternator

It is more or less plug and play with the odd wire extension here and there but depends how much time and $$ you want to throw at the whole conversion

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.
