    L8 ecu on a big escort turbo loom.

    Hello, my first post here, can some one help?
    I am building up an Escort Cosworth motorsport shell. The engine is a home built 2.4cc unit that runs 405 BHP /440 ft lbs @ 5700 rpm on greys and a t 34 at 23 psi. It was mapped by power engineering a long time ago when I had it in my 4x4 sierra on an L8 ECU.
    The motorsport shell has a big turbo Escort loom but will it support the the L8 ECU with the 2.4 cc map. There is no lambda sensor on my turbo either so does this effect the wiring at the ECU plug etc.
    I would like to use the L8 if poss as it works so well rather than going for p8 and a remap, any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.
    Regards Paul
