    Pretty sure you have to run the original ecu aswell to run the speedo and use the pick up of the old gearbox rather than off the hub. There is some one on here that has a similar prob i think it was astraboi not sure though do a search for c20xe and you should find it.

    Umm not really that technical minded but have come up against a similar problem when thinking about changing my engine ages ago its not really the gearbox thats the problem its the speed signal that you need from the gearbox to the ecu to run the clocks which the redtop ecu doesnt have thus the two ecu's you could try migweb as alot more people have done the same conversion in vans etc or try a search on here??
