Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

I see my options as 

1,  bike throttle bodies' aftermarket ecu - expensive

 2, keep the Jag in take and use X Type wiring loom and ecu, think this is related to the Ford EEC V ecu - cheap solution but the ugly intake might have to poke out of the bonnet

3,  Fit an ST 24 intake, cable throttle body and aftermarket ecu.  

You thoughts as to the best solution please

How about three Weber 40 IDFs with the trumpets poking through the bonnet like a hot rod!

If the Jag ECU is similar to the Ford EEC-V then can you programme it to work with the ST24 intake?

Does your engine have variable valve timing? If so then you might need to keep the Jag ECU. Omex do an ECU that includes valve timing control but the basic ECU is just over £1000 before you add in the loom etc and it might not be suitable for the Jag variable valve system.

On the Ford Zetec I think that you need the Ford ignition lock and key for the ECU to work. That may be the same for the Jag, so if you don't have that then you might need to go for an aftermarket route ... or the Webers!

Down to budget and personal choice Dave, Throttle bodies and Omex ECU is my preference.
