Lightbulb something very different.

Hi guys, slightly off but on topic.

i want to do something a bit different.

i've currently got a 96 xud9 405 estate.

i've been really toying with the idea of using a 2.7hdi engine, with a 6 speed manual gearbox and a manual transit bosch fuel pump having it taken out the ecu.

any tips or advice for things i might run into? such as loom issues, drive shafts and gearbox fitment etc.

i was also considering using the inside 2.7 hdi dash loom, making some of the modern luxurys work / fit if possible.

never done a conversion like this between a old xud and newer hdi, any help muchly appreciated

Having been involved in quite a few transplants involving new into old, I can advise that, unless you have someone who is an absolute whizz at programming, you are on a highway to hell.

You are trying to put a system [i.e. CANBUS] where EVERY computer talks to another [and normally has a total hissy fit if it can't], into a dinosaur where nothing is interconnected. It is fun.... [as me how I know]

Essentially, you need to start with the donor car as a complete running vehicle, then you have to program out ALL items not going across BEFORE stripping the donor and confirm the vehicle is functioning properly without these items. Then only can you start transferring bits across. Of course you will need to use the ENTIRE donor wiring loom in many cases, stripping out sections not needed as trying to make the loom in the receiver car work will, in most cases, fail miserably. If you can't achieve this in the donor car before transferring it across, you will fail.

The only "simple" way around this is to use an aftermarket ECU that is capable of running the motor. Again, you will need a very skilled programmer to design the program capable of running the 2.7HDi motor properly.

Good luck with your dream..

He is talking about actually doing away with the HDI fuel system and using a mechanical pump as he mentions transit pump problem with that is he would need custom injectors but more importantly the 2.7 is 6 cylinder transit is 4

I think thats what he means anyway !

I do all sorts of conversions and i agree with you the canbus systems on modern cars make life very difficult and swapping the whole loom is often the easiest way to do it.

That would probably be easier
we had a 4x4 sierra floorpan in an escort mk4 years ago and thats how we done it just cut floor out escort and cut body of sierra shorten floorpan and weld the 2 together

Good luck getting that sort of modification through our certification process here in NZ... It is draconian.
