EBII Manual ECU - Can't Find One!

Hi Folks,
I'm up the creek basically. Have an EBII Fairmont, Did a manual conversion, didn't relize that manual computers for this series were so hard to find. What options do I have? I have the auto one in there at the momment but the car runs likes crap. What are the chances of an aftermarket ECU etc? Any ideas would be fantastic.
Thanks

My Car is all show and no go! In fact engine wise it's stock but it beats a VS, hehe!

Re: EBII Manual ECU - Can't Find One!

I have an EB2 manual. On the wiring harness that goes across the back of the engine on the firewall there is a largish rectangular black connector whose wires go back under the inlet manifold.

Near this connector are two connectors one black & one white, they have 2 red wires going into each of them & I presume they go down to the auto trans because mine have a green plug in one and a blue plug in the other.

I would presume that these coloured connectors are terminating resistors. If you don't have them maybe getting some would make your car run better.

Hope this helps, Jim...

confused Re: EBII Manual ECU - Can't Find One!

Thanks for the reply Jim,
I rang up a heap of Wreckers this arvo and I finally found one. I reckon though that the car had more punch with the auto one in it than it does with the manual one. Maybe thats my mind playing tricks on me though. I hope to get a powerchip for it soon so that will give me a bit more hopefully.
Thkns for the help.

I think it was possible to trick the auto one into thinking it was always in manual and you could continue using it.

Thumbs up Re: EBII Manual ECU - Can't Find One!

Ended up paying $175. When he gave it to me he said it was out of an EB. So I checked the part noumbers on the ECU and foudn that it was the right ECU for my car. I reckon it was a dam fluke to be honest. The car drives alot differently now and acts like it sould with idle etc. I was realy suprised how easy the whole manual conversion was. the whole conversion end up costing me about $700. Pretty cheap I thought.

Did it all myself and used that document that MongrelEB and GLi 90 posted on this site. You would be real suprised how easy it all bolts up. And once it's all finished it all looks really factory. Found out too that the Manual was reconditioned not that long ago too. So all up I've come out pretty good. The car goes really well now and it uses less fuel too. If you can afford it and you have the tools, I would tell anybody to do it. The hardest part is getting that stinking auto out though. Weighs a ton. Anyhow I'd suggest it as a good mod for the EB's with the auto.
