Was wondering what the thing was on what looks to be the Throttle Body saying ECCS on it. I have seen it on picures of various Nissan motors was wondering what it is becuase its not on mine. My Ka24e is in a non turbo p/u and has a normal intake set up and injection set up like I have seen in most domestic rigs.

Heres a link to a page that shows it well

Engine Computer Control System... or something like that, I THINK it's Nissan's system solely tho.

Electronic Computer Controll System makes cents but the air passes throught it as well. I was wondering because isee it in pictures of my engine in 240sx's but in my p/u flavor of the ka its not there.

The letters ECCS indicate that the car is computer controlled. Now, if you're talking about something where air passes through, do you mean the intake plenum? Do you know what an intake plenum is?

Yeah, only Nissan calls their ecu ECCS. The reason why I keep mentioning the intake plenum is because ECCS is stamped on the plenum, and dude says air passes through whatever he's talking about, so I thought he meant the intake plenum.

Not sure about most of the nissan engines, but only the 91-94 ga16de had it stamped on the plenum. Newer ones don't mention it, but I don't know why.

Yah im not asking what ECCS mean im asking what its on and the picture just in case you didnt read the rest of the page it is on a ka24e from a 240sx. hmm so if thats the plenum then does that mean my truck doesnt have a plenum. I will have to look in my book for my p/u after im done moving. Just mentioned the engine type because you were saying only the ga16de has eccs writen on it and the engine in the pic isnt the GA flavour its the KA.

I didn't mean that only the ga16de had ECCS, what I meant was that, of the ga16de engines, only the '91-94 models had it stamped on the plenum. I'm sure other nissan engines had it stamped too(like the KA you mention), I just don't know which years they had it on there. Didn't mean to confuse you:)

Ahh I see. Didnt confuse me, what is confusing me is why my engine doesnt have the plenum. If it did I would buy the CAI for the 240sx and make it work. Thats why I noticed the plenum and was wondering what it was. I started by finding other rigs with the same engine noticed the make it for 240's and not for p/u, so I looked for pictures of the engine bay to see what the differences were to see if I couldnt make one work. So now I guess that I have found my answer. My next quest is to see if I cant get a plenum off the 240sx to fit my intake set up. Or just make something with a coffy can and some tack welding.:eek:
