Hiya, I have bought a 1800 silver top from an xr2i & have been told I can use a rs1800 or xr2i engine loom is this true & I have been told if I use a rs1800 ecu it will then have the 130 bap like the rs 1800's do is this true ?

you could use any zetec loom/ecu to run the engine as long as the ecu matches and works on the loom you intend to use

i'm assuming this is going into a mk3 fez? if so id stick to the rs1800/xr2i zetec/16v si looms and ecu combo's

you'd need the cam's and the inlet from an rs1800 if you want to get near the 130 spec :thumbsup:

Cheers mate so xr2i or rs1800 ecu or loom cheers, & it's going in my mk 3.5 there's no other mods needed for it to go in just the engine mount & gonna try & get a rst gearbox would I need shafts aswell & would I need to change the gearbox cradle or does it all go on my original one ?
