Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

UnoWho... I know that Vince helped Chuck originally, but BNR is a better outfit and has been much more friendly to work with than Trifecta. Standalone tunes take time and Jerry has been very responsive to every lil tweak I needed plus the upgrades done that BNR sells

E39A or you can drop Jerry at BNR a quick email to see if he thinks the E80 is crackable.

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

GM discontinued the standalone ECM and harness for the LTG. I tried to order one a few months ago. It was discontinued in December or last year. You may still see if listed for sale on a few sites but there are none out there. I tried for 3 weeks to find one. Bc no one wants to buy a GMPP 4cyl lol....

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

LNF, LDK, LHU, LTG can all be run off E39A ECM

For lnf, ldk, lhu you want a 2012 Buick regal manual set up for lhu

For ltg you want a 2014 Buick regal manual ecm

If you wanna plug and go get the gmpp kit for ltg with e92 but its $$$... vs e39a and tuning the bs out

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Crack the AN fitting at the HP pump and turn low pressure pump on to make sure you force all air between reg and HP puml out. A drop on the LP side that quick is air or bad pump... Is the LP pump in tank? Or external. Are you sucking through water separator. Another thing to watch is cavitation of t...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

#1... air in the high pressure rail. There should be a needle valve on it to get the air out. #2... the vac port will spit fuel before it sucks air... leave it open or capped doesn't matter #3... return should be submerged dip tube just like supply or foam will quick cross the tank and enter suction...

ECM main ground is in the wiring harness not via the case. Usually one pin in X2 and another via X3 going to a single eye to bolt to the block

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Injector fouling issues are rare as long as you filter pre pump. You can do it post pump but I only know of one fuel/water separator designed for mid-pressure

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

E39, E80, or E92 ECM? There is a clamp style bracket for E80 and E92... the E39 has holes. I've done both unpin and cut seal, but I made sure all the +5v were sealed separately from the low references so you wouldn't have any chance of a false signal (you'll also tune out the CEL codes. You don't ne...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

be cautious about oversizing... keep your runs short as possible... remember the turbo has to compensate for the volume of the piping and intercooler and lag can be exacerbated by an oversized system.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

The only twisted pair you have to worry about is the GMLAN white and blue. You are not running FPCM which is the other twisted shielded and shunted pairs. Solder the joints and shrink tube them and move along. The wiring is not complicated at all... try to keep the amount of solder joints minimum......

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

I have no issues with idle using a short ram intake... but K&N filters suck... dry types are much better for MAF

Exhaust. Flange it to the turbo and hard pipe it all the way with a single flex joint close to the motor. Weld it out

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

I use summit to find the parts I need and then Amazon to order them with prime account. usually get a better price, but summit beats jegs by a mile when finding things.

I run CXRacing stuff on my Ecotec. No issue really... cheap but works.
