EF Fairmont conversion

Can I install a five speed into my EF Fairmont? I would assume yes, but will I have to use the computer from a manual and will it effect the climate control air and trip computer/DTE or can the standard computer be modified. Will all the manual parts from an AU (including the computer if its needed) or even an EB or EA fit without being modified? Did an EF or EL fairmont or Ghia ever get released with a manual? Thanks for any info you can give me.

1965 XP Falcon sedan (soon to be a 250 crossflow and T5)
1986 XF Spac Sedan, EFI, T5, lowered, with a few more mods to come.

Re: EF Fairmont conversion

if you're going to isntall a manual and you deffinately want a 5 speed computer, you have to get one from an EF.
ea-ed, EL ones won't work due to pin configurations being way different.

Re: EF Fairmont conversion

does anyone know of anyone whos put a 5 speed in their EF/EL fairmont and had BEM issues?
The only one i can think of is fordfan351, and his was far from just a 5 speed conversion.

Re: EF Fairmont conversion

well... that car went from an auto I6 to a manual V8.
i can see plenty of room for error with an unknown conversion like that :)

Re: EF Fairmont conversion

John

I personally have not come across any reason as to why a ECU change will cause an issue with BCM. The only drama I have to cross is the Speed sensitive steering thing.....however if Karl can prove his resistor mod actually works, I'll go with that.
