2.7 Ltr Transplant Q's & Advice

I know enough about electrical to stay away from it. So any helpful hints or the Schematics for the ECM would be very helpful. How to attach it to the wiring harness with minimal knowledge or do I have to change the entire harness ?
Thanks in advance for any comments.

The fuel system uses high pressure (30-45lbs), and will require a different pump. There are many ways to do this, you can install a "lift" pump in the stock location, and then the high pressure one in the engine compartment, or you can just put the high pressure pump in the stock location. There is a feed and return line. I've heard of many useing the stock lines, but in my eye they are way too small for their purpose. What I did was run a new 2/3's steel lines from the tank to the engine compartment for the feed line, and used the stock feed line as the new return line. If ya have any other questions let us know, we'll try to answer best we can. Lotsa luck with that shoehorn!

Some diagrams in that thread, they be huge though. Best to copy them to your system and print them out.
Adams advice is good. I have the harness slung about, out in the garage, hanging from the rafters. I spent quite abit of time going over the diagrams and checking them against the harness, then removed what wasn't needed. Take lots of notes, and put lables on the wires that go to things like dash gauges, power feeds, ect..
One of these days, I'll get back to working on the project. Right now, job and our property needs are taking up most of my time.

Having just measured a Gen1 Brat and an EA82, my question would be, "How do you plan on fitting the engine between the frame rails?"
Worst case is some custom work like Free Range did:

on your ER27 swap definitely use an ER27 wiring harness, splicing into another harness would be horrific, if possible.
if you want power steering you'll need a power steering pump as the ER27 wasn't a belt driven pump.

gettin it runing is the easy part.
when i use xt (4or6) harnesses i just take the part from the engine back to the computer. the part where it branches off to the fusebox can be wired by hand. its only three wires.
i use the vent line as a return line, because the stock return line is about half the size. i also use the stock steel feed lines, with the rubber replaced with efi hoses. and one big pump in the rear.
