To maintain the fuel injection system on the TR8 21 years after production ceased is now getting difficult as many parts are no longer available; this section attempts to show the more common parts that are likely to need replacing along with alternative sources of parts where possible. If you buy an Efi TR8 with an uncertain service history I would recommend replacing as many of the parts shown below as you can particularly the sensors as this will save you a lot of heart ache later.

EAC1385 - both of the sensors below will do the job perfectly - however note the response time of 0 280 130 214 is quicker - in my own car I believe it has improved things but can not prove it.
