EL BBM into EA II

Just wondering for the people who have done a similar conversion..How was the auto transmission wired up. If the conversion was from an EBII or higher, the auto computer is inbuilt into ECC IV - but mine has a seperate controller for the auto.

Do I have to go to a wrecker and obtain the new loom or is there some other trick that I don't know about.

ALL help is greatly appreciated,

Robert

Re: EL BBM into EA II

Check fordmods.com, I'm pretty sure they have a tutorial on how to do it, all the parts you need etc.

Re: EL BBM into EA II

What is your EA. CFI, or MPFI? if its an MPFI, just re-use that comp and engine loom, if uve got a CFI, u'll need a EA multi point or EB1 multi point comp and a multi point loom.

I wouldnt bother with EB11 up unless u want to play with smart lock, not cool..

Basically the conversion is the same as the multipoint conversion, plug everything in and hey presto it should work, the big word there is should, mine isnt ...yet...

Re: EL BBM into EA II

Mechanically it is an easy fit (apart fromhaving to shift the gas convertor etc). The car is a MPFI, wiring the loom is easy but I am not sure of the Auto part. The EA II through EB had the computer above the brake pedal wheras the EBII integrated the trans computer into the "engine" computer (in the left passenger kick panel)

What does all this mean, totally different wiring locations as one goes out on the drivers side and the other the passengers side. May have to bite the bullet and go the Jolly rogers with wire cutters and procure the loom from the computer to the intake manifold.

Re: EL BBM into EA II

with the BBM conversion you can just buy an RPM switch to change between long and short runners, then keep existing ECU and TCU as they are.

Re: EL BBM into EA II

Sorry to go a bit OT, I read somewhere on fordmods that if you do the conversion on an ed, and use an el ecu, you loose cruise control. Is this true?
