As the title states I'm hoping someone on here can answer a few questions about the conversion I'm about to undertake on my BF wagon.
I've already purchased a wrecked BF turbo 6speed manual ute from the auctions to donate engine, diff and other bits and pieces into the goon, note I still want to retain the btr not the manual tranny.
The main problem I've got is what PCM can I use in the goon? I talked to the tuner I'll be taking it to after the conversion is finished and he told me to use the turbo computer as it obviously has the ability to control the wastegate, and I also noticed 2 relays in the fusebox for controlling thermo's rather than the single relay in the goon.
I've emailed someone regarding flashing the ute pcm to hopefully control the btr but apparently can't be done. So I asked if I could use the PCM out of a 6speed auto, which apparently the answer is no as well. Which leads me to thinking I have to use the PCM out of a BA, but from what I understand the BA only uses 1 knock sensor instead of 2 in the BF (possibly other features different as well)
So am I better to use the BA PCM, or use the current NA PCM in the goon with aftermarket boost control or something else?
If the BA PCM is the way to go will it be able to be succesfully coded to the bf bcm/icc?
Hope this all makes sense, just want to get this all sorted before I start pulling the goon apart as its my work car.
