2.3 ecoboost transplant questions

Unread postby BKB » Sun Nov 22, 2015 5:00 pm

I have a conquest tsi that I have been planning a motor swap for several years. Nothing really peaked my interest until the new 2.3 ecoboost. It at least sticks to the roots of the car being a turbo 4cly and I seeing the first one on ebay got me excited. From what I can tell this is a mazdaspeed motor so I should be able to use a miata transmission or use an adapter for a T-5. What challenges will I encounter using a take out ecu? I'm sure it uses canbus how do you get around all this.

if its anything like the rest of fords fleet the anti theft is firmware implemented, which means the calibration data cannot disable it youd have to rewrite the os on it too

problem with that is i highly doubt theres a non theft eco boost out there unless ford supports it in the aftermarket as they do with the coyote controls pack

best bet would be to use a stand alone ecu

We'll if ford came out with a control pack and that's what I need the budget is shot for that idea. No way in hell I'm going to try and tune a direct injected, turbo 4, I still have a supercharged v6 that barely runs after 16 years. What would be the best ecu to convert the factory 2.6 tbi into MPFI? Thing runs great and has 20 miles on a full rebuild but the factory wiring is scary on it, not a single wether proof connector on it.

Went cheap and easy sn95 5.0 and T-5 trans. just need the main EEC wiring harness, I have the O2 and trans wiring if anyone has one. No rush on this project but I will start a post when I get started.
