Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Just going to express my opinion... take caution when dealing with AFI... they burned a few of us airboaters in the past.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

If you have any issues with Swaptime, let me know. I have the wiring books for the 2.0 LTG. Its pretty much the same wiring as my LUV except with the addition of the direct injection components. Ill be on the water again mid-May. Taking care of my other hobbies and getting some things I wanted done ...

You go it going right... you dont need the front mounts I have... I bought them just for pattern purposes on building the mounts you already have built. Good luck to you.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

Ballistic is the only option for LTG unless you build adapters. LTG bellhousing pattern is different from other Ecotecs. Need to get a sealed gauge panel box such as a nema enclosure and run a Banks 1.8 IDash off the OBDII

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

You can remove the FPCM from the tune all together, just make sure the fuel pressure sensor is wired to the ECM correctly and in the regulated supply line to the High Pressure Cam Driven Pump. LHU fuel systems are direct injected so there are some extra steps that need to be made to assure there is ...

No issues with fuel heating at all... been running a Bosch 044 @ 58psi and Aeromotive return regulator. Regulator is on the return side and the fuel rail is a flow thru not a dead end. There is enough volume in the tank to keep it cool most of the time, also running E85 so fuel system run cooler. Re...

Re: 3.6 twin turbo engine

AFI has probably done enough bad business with the airboat world that enough word has spread. If you want Turbo Ecotec then DIY or maybe CBM if you can convince them to let you or someone else tune it vs their stock tunes. If you want NA then TKE make a good 2.4L package.

I put mine inside of a Nema enclosure type console and have a tight rubber grommet around the wire entry. Never have a issue with condensation. Key is keeping moisture out and best way is to keep a good seal on top of gauges

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

Gmlan is GM proprietery high speed Canbus language.

The only way to go straight marine analog on an ecotec boat is add sensors you need and you can splice into the crank wiring.

There are no marine gauges that will work with GMLAN.

Option 2: Call marinemods.us and get a can 2 can gateway that will run Marine gauges GMLAN to NEMA2k

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

What OneBFC said... I refrained from responding about AFI bc I would blow up with negativity.

Enjoy your LTG! I am still in debate over LHU or LTG... LHU seems the simplest and easiest to modify at this time with aftermarket parts as I am after 500HP+ on E85.

I have been told there is only a few tuners than can handle the E39A also... so I wont disagree if you can wire it for the standard E39.
