R50 swap over. zd30 out qd32 in

Postby Bompie » Sat Aug 12, 2017 7:21 pm

Hi
i picked up a tidy R50 with buggered zd30 4 $1500. well i guess it was last owner said it needed replacing. as i have a complete qd32 in another r50 that had rusted out. so far ive pulled both engines out. next part of changeover will be subframes then bolt the qd up. i pulled both engine ecu's and looms. does any1 want to share the info on wiring where theres 1 differant plug going to body loom? also i believe theres a little wiring change on the afm. any helpful info would be appreciated. cheers guys

Pretty sure it was explained as I supplied a bit of info to get it running. Will look through my PMS for any extra info.

On the R50 the AFM and coolant temp wires are taped in with the main passenger side body loom and come out around the same place as the alternator and ac clutch wires. Starter, temp gauge, oil switch are in the drivers side body loom. Everything else is in the center loom that goes straight to the ECU thru the firewall next to where the clutch master would be. Looking at the loom on the floor the engine end has the 3 pump control plugs, crank sensor, and no1 injector lift sensor. So temp and AFM must be again in the passenger side body loom, just a matter of changing the plugs to the correct ones at the engine end and matching them to the correct pins at the ECU end.
As long as it utilises the same method of talking to the trans ECU everything should be OK as the facelift R50 uses a stronger trans, and the 'atessa' full electronic transfer I'd rather leave that in there if I can.


as you say almost everything else plugs straight in as the engine control loom is fairly much separate to everything else probably the same as an R20. Oil switches are all the same, might just have to extend temp gauge sensor as its on the opposite side of the head and maybe switch the sensors if it doesn't read right. The only separate ones on my ZD loom are AFM and coolant temp (ECU), which are in the passenger side body loom. I'm picking AFM could be the separate 4pin connector at the ECU end, temp I havnt located yet but probably the same sensor and plug as the ZD one anyway.


If you do have concerns about the plugs dont be, there is plenty of info on the net and knowledge here that can get it sorted.
