EB2 dash + loom into EA?
As some of you may know, my heater core packed it in, so I need a new one.
I am therefore gonna replace the whole heater box and install climate control.
However, I figured while I'm doing that, I may as well replace the whole dash (mines blue + cracked)
I was gonna try and track one down out of an EB2 Fairmont, as I know that they had trip computer + climate control available.
However, I have a couple of questions.
First, will my 3.9 engine work with a 4.0 litre ecu? In terms of compression ratios and the like? I ask because I'd prefer to find a dash that did have smartlock in it, and to make it work properly i'd need the new ecu.
Would the tranny work properly? Was there any significant change eb-eb2 apart from integrating the tranny control into the ecu?
Second, what additional relays would I require? I know the EA Ghias had the a/c relay in the engine bay and additional "accessories" relay in under the dash. Could I just add another relay? Or am I better off trying to get the engine bay loom as well?
Thirdly, are there any other problems anyone could think off? Would I perhaps be better off trying to find a pre-smartlock dash, say out of an NC or an EA Ghia?
Any help is appreciated.
