Can I simply omit the transmission wiring, or must I source an ECU from a manual equipped car?

That being said you can keep the trans I had a 4 speed when I did my ea81 turbo swap. I never finished it. I gave up after I got it running, and it would keep dying, and not starting, and then would run fine some days, and not even start others. I went back to the ea81 and was much happier with that. Not as much fun, but a heck of a lot more reliability. Now I'm onto an EJ swap... for the fun...

an ea82t wull be easier to find parts for. The engine is reliable with proper maintenance, good hoses, good radiator. the will remain reliable if you do not over boost them. no need to mod or upgrade the engine, as there is no aftermarket, and retrofitting is limited, and 115 hp is still better than 80

if you go ea81 turbo, you are best to entirely gut the car and swap the whole harness.
That's what I did. The harness really wasn't that bad to swap at all. And I agree with MilesFox 115 is better than what the ea81 has, I would probably go ea81t mine was awesome when it ran right.

I don't mean to double post, I started this thread with my engine questions:

EA-81T pistons are dished,IIRC.
ECU needs to match the engine,not trans.
