Ordered a Megajolt/E today with the MAP and cable option from Autolabs.
Probably wont be here for a couple of weeks.
This is for my Vitesse 6 still with the original rebuilt 1600.
I will need a trigger wheel, sensor, edis 6 and edis control box.
I have searched the web and for some reason seem unable to come up with a definitive list of cars that ran edis 6.
As I am in NZ I am searching for OZ/NZ/UK cars.
We have 2.5 V6 Mondeos in scrap yards here so can I get parts from those, also plenty of Falcons but I gather they hid the control box in the car computer. No worries about ordering off shore either but sometimes it is just nice to be able to go and buy stuff and walk out with in your hand.
I see most people buy from trigger-wheels.com, any options or are these the ones to get?
As I am slowly rebuilding the car I thought why not get it fitted now

EDIS-6 is relatively hard to find in UK at least as it wasn't fitted to many UK market cars and not for very long.

Mondeo V6 auto was one (manual had the EDIS incorporated into the ECU) and the Scorpio 24v was another.  Both have pretty much disappeared from scrapyards now and were never common.

US market had many more.  Oz & NZ I suspect more also but I don't know what. 90's 6 cylinder Fords.....

Interesting to see I can get a coil pack, crank sensor and leads brand new delivered from Rockauto.com cheaper than a used set from the local wreckers.

After going to Pick a Part and searching their Ford Falcons and Mondeos with no luck then going to the local Ford wrecker who looked at me blankly  I bit the bullet and ordered it all from Trigger Wheels.
Also got a 6.5 inch wheel to fit to the back of my crank pulley.

My questions on this post are
What do people do for ignition leads? Do you just use Ford 6 cylinder leads, if so what car are they from.
And does anyone have any MJ maps for a Vitesse 6 (1600)

Thanks
Adrian

Hi Adrian,
Aussie Fords do not have the EDIS module.
I have used their coil pack and the matching leads. Try and get the suppressing capacitor when you get the coil pack off a car. "THEY" say you should install one but I couldn't notice the difference so I left it in anyway. There are 2 types of lead connectors and they are not interchangeable. Make sure you use resistor type spark plugs.
When you come to hooking the leads to the coil, triple check you have them in the correct "firing order" to suit the coil pack you have. The first coil pack I got was wired differently to every other one on the net!

You have come to the right place for help... Nick and many others have been enormously helpful to me and all the other forum users

Cheers,
Doug

The earlier Ford coil packs have a troublesome special HT connector which makes finding leads more awkward.  Mk3 /4 Fiesta HCS engine leads work for those though mine are actually cut down Mondeo ones.  I bought a set of plug caps and connectors lopped the moulded plug-ends off and fitted them to the Ford leads.  Was intended as a cheapo temporary measure in 2005 but they're still going strong today.

The later Ford coil packs or GM ones use more normal ends and greatly increase the lead choices, so I recommend going for those.

Doug makes a good point about lead order.  No Ford engine has the same firing order as a Triumph 6 so if you plug in according to the numbers sometimes shown on the packs - it WILL be wrong and you will be getting some significant popping and banging and firing your air filter across the workshop.....  Guess how I know this.....  The order that you connect the LT wires also has an effect and you can really confuse yourself like this.....  

I can tell you that the leads need to be paired 1/6, 2/5, 3/4 (which you'd probably figured out for yourself), but as to what order you want the pairs in.....

May the force be with you!
