i have a book w/ the wiring diag and afaik all 2.4 cars have the same wiring harness, every 2.4 car i've seen(14 or so) all have an EGR plug(the wiring harness) even tho only 4 of them had EGR's.... and on cars w/o the Cold start injector the cold start setup was controlled by the ECU as in if the temp sensor was below a certian point then the ecu would just richen up the mixture via injectors vs just turning on that extra valve

so let me check my wiring diag and see what i can tell ya



the heater for the pcv on the 2.4 turbo cars is pretty much unless as you can leave it disconnected w/o any side affects, tho having an external breather helps alot(catch can)

Sorry, should've been clearer. What I meant was that a car that does not have an actual cold start injector installed will have an ECU whose pin-out to ground the injector will not be connected. And, yes, the ECU will richen the mix via coolant temp sensor voltage.

Thanks for posting this. I've been noticing that the AFR goes lean for a split second before dropping below stoich when I get on the boost. I'd thought the AMM was crappy, especially since I just replaced another AMM.

I meant to reply here a few days ago, but Had to bail off the machine so my wife could do some actual work. The EGR is controlled by EZK 116. Kenny are there any codes in socket 6? It is sweet that the harnesses are the same, it makes an FT swap real easy. On my 960T with Motronic 1.8 I am not using the air pump system or the EGR. It takes a month or two for it to throw an EGR code, but never seems to even try to test the air pump system. I also get an AMM burnoff code, but I think that is due to making the AMM wiring longer? I have seen the burnoff occur when it is supposed to anyway. Eventually I will do something to trick the ECU, but for now I do not care if I have to clear the codes every once and a while.

Nope, no codes from 2 or 6. It's definitely cool that it's pretty much plug 'n'play. The customer is coming back in a week or so, so I can check everything over just to make sure it's all happy, but so far so good. I added about five feet to the length of the AMM wiring probably, so I will watch for any of those faults as well. Perhaps the solder connection to the burnout circuit where you extended the wiring has a small crack or something that intermittently creates too much impedance in the circuit to allow the ecu to think its functioning.

I'm hoping it keeps working flawlessly as I definitely could care less if my car threw a code now and again but on a customer's car it would be nice if it's all perfect, I'm sure you know the feeling Pete.

I also agree it's probably fair to assume that an ECU that was not originally mapped to use a cold start injector will probably just have a slightly more aggressive cold-enrichment routine as driven by the CTS instead, so deleting the cold start injector should not cause any cold start problems when the corresponding ecu is used.

As long as the cold start valve is not connected you will be ok. Both would most likely cause fouling on cold starts.

LH2.4 has no transmission signal, the 940t had an AW71, the 240 had a M47, so I just swapped the m47 stuff over since the flywheel was already setup for the crank sensor. You just make sure the 2 dowels on the back of the flywheel are at 2:00 and 3:30 when you bolt it on with the motor at TDC so that the crank sensor signal is in sync, and you're good to go.

How long did it take me? Total actual labour time including pulling both motors, testing all of the ecus to make sure it'll pass aircare, plus swapping the int shaft, replacing t-belt, waterpump, front seals, rear main, breather box service and o-ring, swapping the trans over, and reinstalling the motor and modifying the harness it was about 12 hours.
I can do a straight motor swap in about 4 hours or so, but the fiddling around making sure evrything was just so ate some time up. now that I know all of the electronics works I could do it in maybe 10 hours.

I think the customer is picking it up either today or saturday, so I'll take note of what the bill ends up being, that will sorta be up to my boss.



Oh, another interesting thing, the little sheetmetal clip that you clip onto the fuel pump relay, and then clip to sheetmetal up inside the dash, clips right onto the ballast resistor so you can grab another one of those clips you can clip it up right beside the fuel pump relay, it looks factory.

awesome thread and write up, I +T my 91 240 just ran orange top high resistance and kept the stock harness, 0 issues pulling up to 14 psi on a ported 13c and open 940 down pipe.

Defiantly agree a catch can setup should be looked into for any of these +T cars if you really want to push em!

was curious of the numbers you charged the customer for the work if you don't mind sharing!

I ran into an issue with the cold start injector on my build too, I just went with the system that the turbo car had so just have a cold start plug dangling and get no codes from it ....cold starts are the way they should be.

The heated nipple thing....tossed.... won't send a code won't make anything run funny.

I put 12k on it since, pulling a trailer often, I run at 12 psi on a stock 13c, M47 that currently had 243K on it.



I have only seen the check engine light once when I first put it together I over torqued the knock sensor and it threw a 143 at me, corrected that and have been trouble free since, not a spit sputter or stumble.

I can see your customer being very happy with a turbo redblock manual. I love mine and am building another but even nicer this next time around.
