wiring loom is completely seperated now Im hoping, fingers crossed the EPS is ok, I think all I got left to do is drop lump in, wire it up and get the pipes on, then plug in dash, get cat n key with chip off the lad, and see if it goes!!! on the plus side, Ive put in the loom ready for foglites, and Ive got some calibra heated seat elements(BTW PEEPS BLACK LEATHER INTERIOR IN CALIBRA AT TRAYNORS OF GRANTHAM-SEARCH WWW.YELL.CO.UK FOR FONE NUMBER!!!)
Just need some elements to get the seats wired up

You'll get away with the EPS.. Ive stil got mine with 2.0l 16v. And the best place to put the ECU is to cable tie it under the dash.. coz you wont fit it behind the kick panel coz of the EPS control unit:thumbs:

If you can get away with using your EPS just remove the powersteering pump from the engine and get a shorter ancillary drive belt.Get a piece of string.Wrap it round all the pulley except the power steering one. Then with a tape measure see how long a belt you need the go to a motor factors and tell them you need a ? groove alternator belt ? cm long.:thumbs: Try allwoods or part co.
