LOL! I mean an e3 & an e5.

I know the ECUS are completely different....I'm not bothered about the software, just the pinouts (and whether the connectors are the same).

Cheers guys!

irrespective of the software....the ECU's are not compatible
i.e. connectors, pin-outs etc...

might help to know what you're trying to achieve....
for anyone to advise accordingly

the pin outs are very similar and the evo 3 plugs would plug straight into the 4-5 ecu as far as i know the 4th plug on the 4-6 ecu isnt needed

so im thinking maybe the power fc off the 4 would fit with a bit of a rewire

think its the fan wiring that needs swapping and maybe another couple


if u do a search ive put a link on here to the whole evo range pin outs that came from the NZ site

Sorry, to clarify I have been offered a certain aftermarket ECU (begins with M :) ) for very silly money, but the adaptor is for an e5, but want to put it in an e3. So was wondering if it'd be quicker and easier to butcher the existing adaptor, or simply to start from scratch.

Appreciate all the help guys (esp the interesting comment about PFC! USEful!)

get the proper adaptor for an e3
or get one made

send a pm to 'grants' on here
he's an electronics wizz and should be able to sort it out
without you having to butcher anything to make it fit
