Re: plug and play ECU for EA to ED
How's it going turbotrana, I would be very keen to purchase an EMS 8860 with your adapter harness as I am about to start pulling the 4.0l in my ED apart to fit an ACL race series rebuild kit and a heap of other goodies from Jim Mock. One of the mods i'm doing is replacing the standard inlet manifold, with the EF broad band manifold. To do this succesfully (according to Brendan mock) I will need an EL ECU so I can set it up to change the runner length at certain RPM and alter the timing as well. Do you feel it would be quite simple to program something into the EMS so that it will activate the butterflies in the BBM at say eg. 3000rpm and change the timiing at the same time. I am also going to fit twin thermo's, with the EMS 8860 would i be able to set the thermo's to switch on at a certain water temp? Any info would be greatly appreciated
I am no mechanic genius, I'm only an apprentice Diesel Mechanic, but my best mate (who is helping with the rebuild) is a 3rd year app mechanic at the local Ford dealership... so we do have a little knowlege.
P.S. does the 8860 come with a hand controller for tuning???
