Thanks a bunch, those images will come in really handy.

Great News, the sparky fixed the problem, only took 6 hours and AUD$440.00 to fix...

Cars ready to pickup once I return back to Australia from my trip to Thailand... should be in the new year when I can drive her again... this time with Turbo.

While I am in Thailand, I bought a turbo boost gauge from Depo, a Japanese company manufacturing in Taiwan for only $30.00 new... and a knockoff WRC deep corn 2 silver spoke steering wheel for about $50.00... I'll update with some pics when I get back from the pool... it's a nice 30 deg C here and it's Winter... lol.

So Angel what ended uo being the problem?  Also I just talked to Russ apparently only 26 black xr2s were made out off the 26 I know 2 one near me and then you. Kinda intresting beinf as theyre so rare.  That being said keep that car safe and be careful with the extra power.

Glad to hear they were able to get it running.

The Capriís electrical system can be confusing at first until you realize the BF chassis itís built off of was originally designed electrically for a carbureted engine.  Overall the wiring isnít too hard, thereís only 6 wires under the dash and 2 at the fender wall to make the engine run.
My BP swap initially didnít have spark due to the ignition coil power actually comes from the fender wall and not from under the dash.

I know I'm bringing up a dead thread but was the issue due to the differences in years? I'll be doing the swap but both of mine are '92s.

Always tricky when transplanting engines.....I would like to do the same with my N/A but I would like to go down the electric route at some stage when batteries bet better for DIY conversions.

See the link for a capri converted in Adelaide to electric - interesting stuff....

Great writeup.  I agree.  I think the Capri would be an excellent vehicle to convert to electric.

Yes, the engine harness was different for the 91 and the 94...

The issue was also the ECU connections... the sparky put a new harness into the ECU... Some of the sensors had to get wired in I think.

If I was doing a electric conversion to a Capri, I would leave the original fwd drivetrain in place.

I would go the hybrid route and use a GTX rear setup. Modify it so the differential input faces the rear  and install a right angle gearbox to it so the motor would stick up vertically in the center of the trunk. Then remove the backseat and use that space for the battery pack/freq drive to operate the motor.

IMHO... this would be the ultimate AWD setup.
