Look what I have got!

#1 Post by JEASPEKE » Fri Oct 16, 2020 10:37 pm

I have been after a spare ECU for my Rover 216GTi for several years now. The car is a very early model 1990, manual, non-cat and these ECUs are now quite rare. The ECU code is 83720 PP5 E01. :D :D :D
(If the ECU fails then there is no way to drive the car.)

It looks identical to my original ECU, has the same plugs and potentiometer too. It came out of a Honda Concerto 1.6, I will swap it in tomorrow to check that it works.

Thanks Richard.
Swapped the new ECU in today, it works perfectly and took it for a long drive.
Drove it hard, acceleration was good and Concerto mapping seems identical to Rover.
Have left the replacement in and plan to drive on it for a few months to gain confidence in its reliability.
