Z12/14xep conversion issue
Hi folks I will probably get slated for this but I don't care. I am planning on a z12/14xep conversion into a mini. Why? Many reasons main one being it's what I want to do lol. I have covered all aspects of how it will be done as I am planning on using everything from the donner as the car may be coming for free. My only issue is if I am using the standered ecu and bcm and clocks etc etc from the donner, the only problem I have came across is how do deliver the signal to the speedo. The pick up for this is taken of the front wheels abs ring on the CV but like most conversions I am using mini outer cvs and there is no room for an abs ring on there and fab up a mount for the sensor unfortunately. There is a port in the gearbox for a mechanical to electric pick up but how I install that is beyond me. Any one have any ideas on how this can be done as it's the only issue holding me back

why not have inner cv machines and fit the abs ring to the that.

Could be a shout but don't know if there is enough meat on them for it or space between the hub and where the CV boot attaches

inner cv joint there is plenty

Plenty what?? The absolute rings inner diameter is smaller that the inner CV outer diameter so not possible

it was an idea for you to have the inner cv joint machined down if possible then have the abs ring sweated on. should this not be possible you could always strip the gearbox down have the diff machines and try and mount the pick up where the original vauxhall Speedo sensor went.
these are purely ideas that I'm throwing to try to help you. as if it was me I would just buy an dta ecu or such like and do it properly. all I was doin was tryin to offer ideas.
