Re: Quick EB2 manual conversion question!
I am also running a auto computer in my car...
Its really strange, i originally bought a 2nd hand EA 5 Speed for the conversion, and the idle NEVER played up at all... It was perfect. After about 6 weeks I went to get the gearbox rebuilt, and it was completely cactus, so I got a new one. Ever since then I have had a funny idle. It goes between 1000-1100 rpm at idle.
Rollin had to do something to trick it to think it was in neutral or something. One problem we had was that the car wouldnt start, but we had reverse lights, and then we could get the car to start, but have no reverse lights... A little adjustment by the "King" (Rollin) and it was beautiful.
The EA box is the weakest T5, so if you are going to be putting some horse'ies through it you may have problems down the track.
My box is a combination of XR6T and V8 internals. Its good for over 200 rwkw.
Rollin and I havent had a chance to fix it as yet.
If you dont have smartlock, Rollin has a Manual XR computer, which he may sell. I am going to give it a try and see if it stops the idle problem, but seeing it doesnt have smartlock I am not wanting to keep it permanently.
