Happy to join. I took the plunge on a EA -EJ conversion 2 years ago and now having some issues passing emissions. Never had temp gauge and seams to run OK temp. The 2.2 runs great when first started and until first shut off when warm. This is during warm months. Very difficult to start in Winter. In warm months, if shut off warm, care difficult to start again and when started, run high rpm and rich... First year I couldn't pass emissions because of Rich. Don't have engine light hooked up and don't know how to use diagnostic LEDS.
Just replaced the temp sensor and O2 sensor on Cat. Didn't help.
Luv my Loyale conversion
