I don't think this is possible since the 215 doesn't have a distributor. I thought most people were using the stock st215 ecu.

Wondering how the 205 swap compares to 215? Which one you think is more reasonable to do in to st-185? I understand that 215 ECU is a must, the stock 165/185 harness can be rewired by someone named "Doug" :D for around $450. What do you get in the end? The stock 215 engine is rated at around 260 hp, right? What else is there to watch out for with this swap? Assuming you doing just the engine and no trans... Do Caldinas come only with AT? or MT also can be sourced? Are those ECU hard to come by?

From what I understand, the 205 has more upgrade options then the 215. I imagine that will change as more people try and use the 215.

The 215 has a higher base HP, but from what I have read, the rods are a little weaker, so you can't push as much HP on the stock internals. I dont know what the estimated cap is, but for me I will be happy with 260 to start lol.

From what I can tell, the manual ECU's are hard to come by, but it seems people use the auto ECU's with no problems, so not alot of need to get one.
