Re: Exhaust manifold

Not easy to do on the car but possible if you lift a bit the engine.
I ve fixed mine on the engine in place in the engine bay that way.

Re: ECU on EFI cars

Happy to see that the topic drains so many reaction and information. As James said, the K6 is already purchased. Even so I still have 3 ways to go ahead: 1)I’ve got the K6. I’ve been in touch with Leoni, and yes, I should get data from her with a map and help. I add about this ECU that 2 of the last...

Re: ECU on EFI cars

I suggest you get the car running with original ECU. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the complexity of tuning an engine. If you have not done so before, don't even try. Take it to someone who knows how to do it. Philip, I do not underestiate the job at all. I've read lot of data with the Megasquirt experience...

Re: ECU on EFI cars

Thank you both for your return. I will continue to think to what sounds to be the best solution for me. I've seen on the last S3 V12 restaured by E Type UK that the ECU they use is placed under the sit. A third way to be concidered. For the fuel, I've planed to use the same kind of solution Philip d...

Re: ECU on EFI cars

Thank you Philip, I hesitate between the 2 solutions. The place exists in the Boot as I'm going to use an immerge fuel pump. But harness from the XJS is large and I m afraid to get it visible all along of the body panel. Further more, I ll have to add large wires because the battery in the XJS is al...
