ECU relocation

Yes please! I think I'm going to have to make my own, £200 sound like quite alot of money for a few plugs and cables or is there more to it than that.

Either way, part numbers would be very good

Taken from an email that a chap sent me from devon4x4 forum:

vems

the parts you need here

You want 2x Econoseal 36 Harness @ 48euros
and 2x Econoseal 36 PCB @ 13.89 euros

You will need to straighten out pins on PCB connector and solder on wires. I would then seal in epoxy resin to make it waterproof and good for vibrations etc.

I don't think there are any inherrrant problems with doing this.... the ECU extentions you can buy off the shelf are just made fomr length of wire, no other electronics involved.

just make sure that the solder connections are 100%

Here in New Zealand A coalmine on the west coast brought ten new toyota 70 series landcruisers v8 deisels. for use around the mine
within one year TWO v8 engines had to be replaced under warranty!!!
they had defenders before with same people driving, no NEW engines in them
Toyota is not so reliable as people really think , I know a toyota mechanic here, they never admit problems, they just get your vechile in for a service and wiill say come back later we are busy, and replace the head on the engine and not tell you!!!or whatever they need to do
