    I have seen people kn other sites grabbing stuff from the junk yards and having problems till they figure out how to tune it. My reference is with project zero g with people going with the megasquirt instead of dsmlink/ecmlink.

    I went distributor-less on my build. Mandated by the use of an AEM aftermarket ECU which wanted to see an Eclipse 2.0 Turbo motor.

    The basics, The ECU wants a Dual Coil setup, and the ISC controller in the throttlebody is different. A trip to the Pick a Part landed me the dual coil and Ignitor necessary and the Throttlebody. While I was there i pulled the ECU and checked to see if it was a Eprom Model :-) (re-sell) it wasn't so I clipped all the connectors with as much pigtail as i could get, because I knew I was going to have to add wires, and Now I have a crap load of spare pins and the plastic connector bodies. I also grabbed the CAM angle sensor but that was un-necessary.

    Swap over was easy, I mounted the coil pack to the front of the Manifold,




    remember mine is in a different place than most, it may not work for you.
    I moved the plug wires to the correct location on the coil pack, & removed the cap. I used the cover of the donor CAS RTV'ed in place to seal the opening, the 2.4 motor has the CAS built into the base of the distributor. The wires for the first coil are in place, I had to add the second coil wires to the empty pins on the ECU connector ( remember the pigtails) and then I changed out the Throttlebody and adjusted that wiring. sucker fired right up.



    I also had to enlarge the manifold throttle body "hole" by 10 MM to match the new Throttlebody.
    There was a lot of planning and looking over the wiring diagrams between the Eclipse and the Mighty Max finding the common wiring and the differences, Hint, they are extremely common, right down to the wire colors.

    Dsmlink and ecmlink can chip non EPROM ecus with link now. It'll cost a bit more but can be done. I've looked into sending my 91 non EPROM to get link. Just don't have the cash.
