IGNITION ECU for 1989 2.8 18v 430/228

looking for a used ignition ECU for 2.8L 18v. It cannot come from a 2.5. The car will run very lean at high RPMs and will develop unwanted problems.

I was told you can move the EPROM from your damaged ECU box to an ECU from any fuel injected Biturbo with a distributor. In other words, the boxes are the same what makes them unique is the EPROM, which is a plug in module.

Try this place, they have everything. Communication is lacking but maybe you'll have a better experience than i did. KJBparts.com
Also, what make you think the condition is caused by the ECU? Could this be a symptom caused by a different component, MAP sensor, Fuel pressure regulator, TPS? If I were you, I would get a second opinion.

1979 Merak SS (Isabella) - sold
1987 Biturbo Si (Francesca)
2003 4200 Coupe Gt (Grey Mare)
2005 CLK 320
2007 E350
2008 C300
(Yes, I name my cars, but only if they have personalities)

I would avoid using KJBparts, there are many horror stories posted both on Facebook and in other forums.

Lots of people have lost their money because of this guy.

I only managed to get my money back after I took legal action against him.
