ive got a late xe engine (dis pack) that came out my LET astra gsi. i got the engine with the car but the bloke chucked out the ecu and loom which is motronic 2.8 i believe? i want to put this engine in my car but cant get that loom or ecu anywhere for a late gsi. ive been told it has to be a gsi loom coz of the traction control wiring??
could i get away with used motronic 2.5 ecu and loom from earlier gsi if i change a few things? these are the only things i can think i will need from the early xe, any more gender on this:
camshaft (exhaust side)??
the traction controll is nothing to do with the engine loom, when i fitted a TP208 kit to Daveb's astra gsi it had traction control, the wiring for the motor did not come from the engine loom, it runs along side the starter/charging loom.
so you dont have to have the TC connected up, it just means you will have a light on on the dash
