Hello i fitted an rs1800 engine to my 1.6 Si today, all the connections seem to be EXACTLY the same.

engine was fitted and i tested it on the 1.6 ECU just to make sure it turned/started fine. it did.

fitted RS1800 ECU with steering column and it will NOT run, petrol is getting to the cylinder but a spark isnt (not to sure about the spark because it was balanced and fell off but should have seen it anyway.



i was wondering if anyone knew why that was? all i could think is the wiring to the ECU's may be different??

if so does anyone PLEASE know how to modify it so it runs.

its running on the 1.6 ECU at the moment but its chugging stalling the lot.

thanks!
andy

i think you might have to get your ecu re-mapped or chipped as your engine has been modified but the ecu is set as standard you can get to the ecu by your obd2 input under your dash :ph34r:
