Hi Big Wasa,
I'm in the process of wiring up my st170 engine. I've basically cut all of the required connectors off the loom and I'm connecting them all back up individually. I have all ecu connections wired up and am waiting for delivery of my relays / fuse box to crack on with that.
I'm not sure if the oil temp/pressure sensor is required to run the engine. This only has 1 wire and I can't see that it connects to the ecu. Any advice on this is appreciated!

There are no sensors. The oil pod is driven by the ecu and is just a gimmick.

If you use the dash in your build the pod has an illuminesant back light driver in it.

Great thanks. I'm not using the focus dash so I can just forget about it.

Just to confirm, this is the plug next to the oil filter that I am referring to. So I don't need to connect this up to anything???
Thanks.

That's you're low oil pressure warning light.
Standard ford .
It does not sense pressure or temperature for the st oil pod. That connects to what ever dash or warning lights that your using and warns you of low oil pressure but if it comes on while driving its probably to late any way.

Big Wasa, are you aware of any programs that will enable me to go into the standard st170 ecu that will enable me to change the crankshaft sensors angle? I donít want to disassemble the engine box setup fitted to the car. Itís in an MGB GT and space is VERY tight. Has an RX8 box. I cannot just drop the box from the engine due to MGB engineeringís cross braces. Thanks mate.

As per your other post, I donít think it can be done. Up until not long ago you couldnít do anything diy to these ecuís. You can look at a project called Forscan. There was other projects in America where these are used much more than here but you will need good computer programmer and microelectronic knowledge. I tried but itís way way over my head.

A stock flywheel can not be out, so how have you set up the trigger ?

Cheers
