Telling between OBD1 and 2
Hey guys, i know it is possible to tell the type of ECU from the plugs in the back but i don't have access to my car at the moment.
I was wondering of there was any other way to tell. I had my father read out all the numbers on the label on the top if that helps.
Also my engine is sounding pretty fucked at the moment (1.8 v6) so i was thinking about putting in the 2.5 (If i have OBD1 that is).
Was thinking about just putting in the KLDE version to save cash. Does this engine just come from a Ford Probe (if so what years) or MX-6(again, years?).
Any help on any of this would be very much appreciated.
Hmm really that's the best way to tell, take off the wee plastic trim guard and count the plugs like in the HOW TO. Get your dad to send a photo. You know you can put a 2.5 in an OBDII car anyway, the way to make it work is to use your k8 sensors and a probe/mx6 kl02 VAF and a adjustable FPR. This strangely works well. Fine tuning could be acheived later down with megasquirt or another piggyback.
The 2.5 L (2497 cc) KL family uses an 84.5 mm bore and 74.2 mm stroke. It includes the Japan-only KL-ZE, which produced 199 hp (149 kW) and 165 ft·lbf (224 Nm). Another variant, the KL-DE (also known as the KL-03 outside the USA, and fitted to 2.5 litre Ford Probes) was the worldwide version, with 164-170 hp in various applications.

Is Freedoms engine sold? I'd give him a shout just in case.
Cheers bud, i will hopefully get a chance to look myself this week.
Hopefully the swap is as easy as described as i could really do with my car back on the road.
The list of donor cars help too.
