as the title says, picked up a 5.0 HO from a 98 exploder. I have the entire engine harness, ECU, MAF-S, and I just unplugged the other two plugs from the firewall harness. I have been reading all through fordfuelinjection.com trying to get some ideas, but most of that is EEC4. Does anyone have experience with the OBD2 swap, and what I need to tap into, to make this engine/harness come alive.





C5 trans is going behind it, so I need not worry about making an electronic transmission work with it.

EDIT: for anyone that hasnt seen my buggy, I currently run a carbed engine, So I have no existing wiring harness.

saw rjm's harness the other day, kinda pricey at 495 but its 3 wire hook up and u are running, might help you out. they also have an emissions harness to go with it. if i ever go 5.0 i was gonna go carbed because im already carbed, but with that harness i might go efi. hell run a braided fuel line with inline pump, then use the factory line as a return into one of those fittings that goes on the filler. they are starting to make things really easy nowadays

pretty much any harness for a buggy is a 3 wire hookup:dunno:



the 5.0 stang stuff is simplest, but losing the dizzy and having obd2 tuning capacity may be desired a bit later so dont throw all that away yet:icon_thumby:

just got in and seen this stuff.
