    z20LET into 2.2 Coupe?

    Is it possible to use the existing loom and ecu of a 2.2 coupe for a z20LET conversion. Ive got a feeling that you can't, but just want to confirm. Cheers guys

    nope as sensors etc are differnt and looms may not be in the same areas
    ecu has no way of running a z20let either

    dash has to come out as loom is different, 2.2 to turbo is a bitch on a 2.2 because of the dash loom

    So it's not plug and play then as my mate said. I'm planning the same for my 2.2 as it's in a bad shape. So do you need to change ecu, chips in keys, transponder thing. Engine loom and dash loom??

    Ive seen a few conversions where the standard dash loom was used but ive heard that a dash loom from a 1.8 wouldnt work, so i think some fit and some dont.
    its not that hard to change the dash loom, everything is plug and play, it just takes patience and time.same go's for the engine too.
    Fuel pump, ABS unit and carbon canister solenoid will also need to be changed on a 2.2.
