I got a 1DEC ECU which is smartlock (it won't run in my EB Fairmont when I tried it out). What are the minimum components required to get this to work in a hot-rod application. All I am trying to do is get the ECU to start and run. I assume I will need the smartlock module and ignition switch and wiring harness. Will this be enough?

I've read about the castle autoelectric box, but at AU$300 it's cheaper to go with a non-smartlock ecu instead.

i thought the body control module ran the smartlock..
and allowed the ECU power when activated..
I thought it should of run.. is this 5.0 or 4.0 ECU.
I think easiest way around it is an EB1 ECU..
