injector swap EA MPFI to BA

This weekend I'm embarking on an MPFI conversion for the EA I picked up all the parts for the conversion yesterday for $400 I also have a set of BA 6 injectors these look as though they would fit straight in, same clips to fuel rail and same length but will these work with the EA computer or will the different impedance stuff things up a bit, am I safe to test them out without fear of melting the ecu?
any help appreciated, Ben

Would Ba injectors mean 182 kW???.... Joke
No really, Would there be any advantages of doing this?

If ypu are not sure of the impedence (resistance), measure it, digital multimeters are cheap enough these days

Re: injector swap EA MPFI to BA

AU falcons use 4 hole injectors, these are thinner than the usual injector and have a wr part number... So the au falcons run the same manifold and the same head design as late el's yet they get away with using the 4 corner squiter injectors yet the el uses only one... hmm seems funny????.

The au injectors work fine why shouldnt ba which squirt the same as the au injectors......
