i got the fe3 engine without the ecu and wires and now its all mix and match but which wires do i use and what front pipe and are there any alternatives to the ecu? I tried reprograming it with frineds from advance efi but i'm not sure if it will work so i'm looking for suggestions before i try.

Well, I am not sure what you mean exactly with the wires. Do you mean the plug wires or just wiring on the engine? B/c I am not even really sure what kind of plug wires to use (even though yes I have an FE3). As for the ECU the other option is to run stand alone fuel management system, like SDS (which I have). Be prepared to for out $1200-$1400 for it though. Some people have tried to use other ECU's from a Protege or whatnot, but have just had a lot of problems with it.

Wow, um yeah, I'm bringing this one back from the dead.

I actually just wanted to know why you, evo626, do not recommend using the modified F2 dissy.

I have the FE DOHC dissy, but the cap is broken, and I am assuming if I replace that I will not be able to plug it in to my stock coil; am I right?

You'll still need the fe3 ecu to make it work. I hope your not trying to use the f2 or f2t ecu becuase it wont work. It might run but you risk damaging the engine.

Yeah, I think I am going to hold off and save up for a standalone.

So, just to be clear, there is no way you think I should even try to make my F2 ECU work?
