shift kit/ecu question

well im wanting to chuck a shift kit in my xr6, but i have a couple of questions.

firstly, i tried to get the ecu loose but i just cant disconnect the loom off the top.

then i wanted to know how to attach the 2 wires to the ecu? do i just splice them into the loom wires?

and where does the switch go? im going off the diagram from MechForums and it doesnt show a spot for the switch.

Re: shift kit/ecu question

Ahoy hoy.

The EEC loom (if its anything like my EF) has a small bolt holding the connector to the EEC. Something like a 10mm probably, as you undo it the connector is pushed out from the EEC. Also nice and easy when putting back in - screws the connector down so its impossible to bend the pins.

I must apologise, i dont know the pin #'s for the 6cyl but i'll assume you know what pins im talking about.

If you're mounting the resistors in a box - it will have 6 wires coming out of it - 3 for the loom and 3 for the switch.

In the ECU loom, only ONE of the wires is cut - this is the wire that goes to the S5 solenoid. The other (the return line from the S5) is only 'spliced' into.

The EB-ED diagram on Jamie's site does not have a switch. You must look at the EL switched diagram and translate this into your own application. Basically use the EL diagram but use the resistor and pin values from the EB-ED diagram. It will make sense if you picture it all in your head.
