MS1 1.6 to BP-Z3
Hi, I have a MS1 PCB3.0 assembled for a 1.6 (1990) standalone.
I did the next modification to it:
-Spark out inverted circuit
-fast idle mod
I know Iím asking alot of technical questions about the swap, but I though the MS section was appropriate for my questions, since I have a MS tuned for a early 1.6 and want to swap to a later 1.8.
I blew my B6 lately to what I think is a bad oil pump.
I found a 2002 NB BP-Z3 and I am looking forward to swap it in my 1990
I am planning on doing what I think is right:
-B6 fuel pressure regulator
-All pigtails, sensors, Ö. From the B6
I donít know if I can use the hall effect sensors from the cam sprocket and from the crank pulley instead of having to fit the B6 CAS.
I also heard the alternator was different, or something needed to be done to the MS circuit (from what Abe was quoted somewhere in this section), do I need to do something or can I use my B6 alternator and make the NB pulley fit on it?
Here comes my big concern, I would like to know if I can run the engine like a B6 without controlling the VTCS and the SV-T from the ECU or if one of those things is controlled by the oil pressure? I guess the intake can be left with only one plenum, but I donít know for the valves.
Thank you alot, Iím waiting for your precious suggestions!
