have started fitting motor into my w210 merc and have a few questions

1, im using the rb auto (will do manual later on when i can afford it) when i stripped the motor from the car i didnt see a auto computer does it have one or is it in the engine one?
2 anyone know if theres a way of hooking up the speedo sensor into the merc dash as its digital ie does someone do a converter box or some such?

The cars ECU is either manual or auto!
What does the merc weight just outta curiosity?
Best thing you can do to a merc, make it reliable AND sound good :D

so does the ecu control the auto? i e do i have to connect all the wires from the trans to ecu etc,

weighs in at a slime 2 ton, im planning on getting a bigger turbo down the track to help it out (are the autos able to handle extra power?)
yeah hopefully more reliable and a whole lot less wiring to go wrong, car was making a wierd noise one day traced it to a little fan (run a bearing i think) that blows over a hot wire to demist the review mirror!! why one earth you need that i dunno?

i got told that there is an auto ecu under the drivers side carpert of the car. depending on what it was. this was in a cefiro. haven't really had a look for myself so not sure on the reliability of that info. wow that is an intresting conversion. hows it going? I would love to see this car.

thats the auto computer from a vl commy. found it in my dash - thought mine was a factory manual but nope. I have no idea about r33 though but more than likely the same. If I was you I would go manual first off - save the pissing around

EDIT: if you stripped the car and didnt see another ecu and BADHABIT says it runs through the engine ecu then..... sorry to confuse you more but someone will come along with a concrete answer

Where does your ecu come from? In some Nissans the auto ecu is inside the main ecu in others it is in a seperate box. if you don't know where the ecu comes from post up the part number and someone will be able to work it out (there is a list of ecus in this site somewhere).

cars still getting there (4 month old babys are somewhat demanding on time) motor and box mounted, radiator fits, just got a vr4 intercooler (biggest that would fit without cutting-wont give me a cert if it interfers with frontal impact /airbags etc)
going by the r33 wiring diagram it has 4 wires going to auto and pretty sure thats all the wires coming out of it so think it should be sweet

would love a manual if someone was to give me one or 1500 to buy one!

Okay In my Cefiro its behind the kick panel just beside your right foot at the bottem of the dash. Im pretty sure its the same on R33s. But i remember in my series one R33 something about a computer being in the boot where the battery is. Not %100 on this. But there is a couple at pickapart at the moment and im planning on going there this week/weekend so ill have a hunt in one and let you know where i find an auto computer if someone doesnt post a deffiante answer before me.

:dude
Jangles.

Its so sad driving sideways is a crime

HICAS computer should be mounted under parcel tray in boot on drivers side. On 4wd car, there should be another ECU on opposite side to HICAS ECU. I think on some cars, it's ABS + 4wd in one ECU.

Autotrans ECU should be behind drivers side kickpanel (same place as engine ECU, but on drivers side of car), as mentioned in post above.
