    crap , never noticed that. Just read it..

    I don't understand one thing.

    Can i use a obd1 dash and engine loom ? Then i won't have to chage the ignition? correct???

    If i use obd2 engine and dash loom i need a new ignition and transponder box etc etc.

    what loom is originally on the ek3?

    obd1 loom won't work, don't need to change any dash loom, just get hold of an obd2 ek4 engine loom

    think you can adapt your old loom to fit but i couldn't find a solid answer what needed to be modified so i bought a loom instead

    p.s good luck finding one, as they are like goldust and not cheap

    also the transponder box sits behind the lower dash (under your steering wheel) where the coin pocket sits
