Hi guys. i have read a few forums about fitting a ford 1.0 ecoboost engine into a classic mini shell, however answers and questions are scattered everywhere i thought this could be one location where all questions can (hopefully) be answered.
a few issues i have read about is the ECU, Wiring, drive by wire throttle and high pressure fuel pump. i found a website selling a kit that seems to solve a lot of these issues.
"This complete engine management system for the Ford 1.0 EcoBoost engine controls all the standard engine parameters including the dual variable valve timing system, drive by wire throttle, high pressure fuel pump and high voltage DI injectors. The package comprises an SC GDI 4 ECU and modified Ford engine wiring loom (as an exchange). The GDI 4 ECU is pre-mapped for the standard engine, modified engines will require remapping to optimise the power gain from those modifications.
With this ECU and loom combination the very powerful and modern 1.0 EcoBoost engine can easily be used in many different applications from kit cars, track cars"
Does anyone have experience with this kit or has found a better solution to these issues. or have i missed any issues that can be predicted?
