    Plumb, here is a diagram of the workings of the EWS system . Notice there is also a transmitter in between the key and EWS module that you should remove. EWS 3 won't have this with it's rolling code feature.

    Ive been sctratching my head over this all week.....
    PM me Steve and I will tell you the solution

    I've removed the parts shown in your diagram Neal, I've cut the wires with about 500mm left on them from the units, the DME is just unplugged from the engine loom.
    I haven't found an ecu or haven't reconised an ecu yet (apart from the DME, which looks like an ecu to me) and I've got the loom out of the car in bits now.
    Any box which was in the loom has been kept with it's connectors and a good length of wire on the end, apart from the ABS ecu and the airbag ecu as I know I dont need these.
    Is the DME the ecu
    Is the current E30 (the donar car shell) ecu also connected to the engine loom
    How hard is the wiring going to be to get the EWS working in an E30, there is a lot of wires involved.

    The DME is the ECU....

    I would also have a browse on the forum on the link i posted above. There seems to be a lot of info for your conversion on there. From what I can make out, they seem to join the E30 loom to the E36 loom...

    Cheers Steve, I've been on E30 24v for 18 months, it's a good site but not used much so a little slow but you always get an answer.
    The worst bit I can see is the EWS and other parts that need wiring back in

    Yeah I know what you mean. Thats what put me off in the end.

    It will be worth the effort in yours, E30's with that engine are supposed to be awsome machines.....

    The effort will be well worth while when it's up and running
    Do go hiding I may be calling on you for help in the next couple of months when I'm stuck.
    You dont know of any E34 525 24v motors that I can rob the sump and inlet manifold from, theres a motor on the bay at the mo for £225, but I've seen a complete car for £150 but it's quite a long way from here, need to find someone who's breaking one or one in the scrappies, I've been to Brill, Bicester, Bloxham and Claridges in Carterton but they are all out of the parts I'm after.

    Ah PC Auto's in Oakley, that's the one I call Brill coz I cant remember where it's near, I was down there 2 weeks ago and he didn't have a E34 but had 2 E30s.
    They change the stock quite often up there, and Bloxham change their stock quickly too, they had 7 E30s an 1 E36 the other day, they also had 1 E34 and a E32 V12
