Re: Hey all...EF question
Right, thanks for the info. Unfortunately no auto electrician, I do most of my own repairs but can't go much further engine wise then replacing a head gasket. I have a close relative who is highly mechanically adept but not with modern electronic systems...I was hoping to balance that because I'm a electronics technician and have no trouble deciphering circuit diagrams or fixing both analogue and digital circuits. I figured the problem (if there was going to be one) would be electronics related....Could the existing EEC-V set up be reprogrammed for the engine at all?
I must say that overall the car was destined to become a project eventually...I got her for a great price, she's
in excellent condition asides from the auto box and engine (I knew about those and got her with the purpose of fixing her). I'm not too perturbed that my oil and filter change didn't do too much for the transmission, I was wanting to replace it with a manual box anyway.
As you've mentioned...yes I would like to be able to use the more powerful donk. Originally I was going to rebuild the original engine and eventually tickle it up a bit after improving the standard suspension. But now I really want the BA engine, likely doing the same with it....anyone have suggestions on that front? I don't mind if it takes a little effort to achieve...Sorry for the length of this message.
