spider intake and MPFI
Posted 26 February 2004 - 01:06 AM
because i snagged a spider, non-turbo, intake today at the bone yard for free. if i want i can also go grab the wiring harness and the rest of the system, its off a wrecked 91 XT, 4lug, 5st 4wd car.
i would buy the whole car but the driver fender is pushed up about an inch from the valve cover, and the passenger side is about 2 extra inches away now, so the whole frame is shoved.
or could i pull the ECM, harness, and everything else, its only missing one fuel injector, and plug it into my wagon.
my main question about that is will that ECM plug into the stock system of my wagon, or will i be cutting and splicing?
Thanks for any information.

also, how do i take out the ECM out of a 91 XT4?? i know the wiring harness runs into the car, but where is the ECM, is it behind the center concole?
also how do i get the harness out? i need everything so i can put it in my 86 wagon.
everything is there, i just need to grab it.
but also, what sencors do i need to convert from carb to MPFI? i know:
but what else?

What yard is the XT in? I need some interior parts. Is it a gray interior?
Posted 26 February 2004 - 03:00 AM
are you serious about the ECM, dam that sucks, so i have to pull apart the trunk to get it? and what am i soposted to do about the wiring running to it? just pull it with the ECM?, that means pulling out the whole interior huh?
it sucks because its on the top of a scooby wagon so it isnt the easist to get into, i had to crawl in through the sun roof today to grab some stuff and pop the hood.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 03:14 AM
The parts I need are the dash (not the cluster), the drivers side door panel and maybe the hood. What color is the exterior?
How did you manage to get the intake for free?
You should have got all the stuff with it.
Sorry, should have read it better, you have a carb. You need everything that was on the intake.
And the ECU, and wiring. And fuel pump. I know theres more, but I cant remember this late at night.

he gave it to me after i pulled it and said that, worked out a deal for the parts too, $40 for everything i need.
they are pricks, you step up, they back down, its nice.

Posted 26 February 2004 - 03:23 AM
also do i need anything that plugs intot he harness inside the interior.
what i mean is where the harness enters the interior through the firewall, anythign that plugs into it, do i need that stuff, or can i just plug in my stuff from my 86 carb wagon?
PS, calebz, dont need them, i got my turbo heads sittin in my garage, when i do all this i will also bolt on the turbo. and change over the intake for the turbo settup.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 03:32 AM
Dont forget to get a price on that stuff for me. Thanks in advance.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 03:41 AM
and ya i wont forget, i already made a list of stuff i need and put your parts list on there.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 04:55 AM
You have to change the heads,
yours are single port,
MPFI are twin port.
Might as well grab the cams while you are at it.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 11:13 AM
they are turbo heads, twin port, also i have the turbo cams, turbo piping, turbo, dizzy, etc.
get what im sayin.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 12:46 PM
intake and other parts are up for sale in the marketplace.
Posted 26 February 2004 - 10:24 PM
You got lots of time. You'll be happy with it when you get your drivers license back..
DOnt buckle under the pressure!
Posted 27 February 2004 - 01:11 AM
so ill just wait till later and pick up a GL-10 turbo wagon, and put on the spider intake. rather then try to convert mine.

The wiring for the ECU, runs down the PS of the vehicle, under the carpet. Or atleast it does on an XT-6.
The ECU is mounted under the package shelf near the speaker on the PS.
You probally have to pull the heater system out to get to the connectors inside of the car, but don't quote me on that. I was stripping the XT-6 out, so everything came out anyways.
There's a mess of relays, below the radio, 2 of which are your fuel pump and ignition relays.
Best to get a wiring diagram of the XT's system. It will make life simpler for you.
