2.5 KLZE auto?



  • lo lads,

    had a quick search and nothing came up.

    Can I get an engine from a 2.5 KLZE auto to do a conversion? is there a difference on the engine once the auto box is off?

    Presume it would need a different ecu?

    Are there any other manual gboxs that would matt up to the engine?

    cheers



  • You can bolt a K8 gearbox up from your standard 1.8 lump thats what i did.



  • Mine was an auto ZE too. Only think you have to do really is cap an extra coolant line that would go to the autobox (I assume). The block is essentially the same.

    Manual gearbox from mx3, mx6, probe, 626 etc all bolt up no problem.



  • ZE ecu is different. The Auto Ze has a KL31 ecu which will only run on an auto so you will need a KL36 manual ecu if you are going to get the full potential out of it.

    As a last resort you could use a kl-05 ecu and Kl-02 vaf from a uk spec mx6 but the mapping is different so bhp will be down.

    negative.

    you can use either the kl31 or kl36 ecu (will run the same)
