ED 4.0Lt turbo ECU query...

I've just recently bought myself and ED Fairmont with the intension of turbocharging it.
I'll be using the old turbo [TO4 (.6-Vtrim, 1.15 Ptrim)] and intercooler[2 s4 coolers welded together] off my rota, which from what I've read and seen should do the job reasonably well running my intended max boost pressure of 6psi.

I've done much searching on this forum and elsewhere online to only find conflicting answers to my question. Which is, will the standard ECU, pump and injectors be able to take 6psi?
If not will I be able to get away with a decent pump and a rising rate reg? Or is there simply no easy way out without running an aftermarket ECU?

On a side note, I was going through my old ZOOM magazines reading up on the workhorse wakeup project they covered. In one of the articles they showed a small pcb attached to the side of the EEC-IV which apparently allowed them to retune it. Does anybody know what this was and where any more info could be found about it?

Thanks
Mark :)

PS: I'll be doing this conversion regardless of ECU issues, the way I see it is at worst I should be able to buy an old Microtech fuel only comp to run aux injectors anyway.....

How do you reprogram the ECU?
Would this be able to control the igntion on an LPG turbo setup?

I only now just understood that! Must read properly!

The question I'd love answered by you is the same as DansEdgli, how did you go about reprogramming the standard ecu and do you sell it? :)

Re: ED 4.0Lt turbo ECU query...

g'day mate, im kinda in the same boat as you....except i'm twin turbo'ing an EA. Im using standard fuel pump, malpassi rising rate reg, and a pressure switch connected to two extra injectors mounted to the throttle body. It's a bit crude but apparently it works. I say apparently cause the turbo system isn't plumbed up to the intake yet...still waiting on a cooler. But the guy I bought the kit off had it on his EA and said it worked fine...all with stock engine managment.

And do you think you could scan and email those Workhorse Wakeup articles for me? I'm dying to read that article but they are sold out.

If you buy the new issue of ZOOM which is a feature on TWIN TURBOS youll find they go over the Workhorse Wakeup project again.
Its got Brett Waines Twin Turbo V8 VH COmmodore on the front. id post if i had a scanner.
