so, i got the new(er) engine today. Any ideas why the RC ecu would not fire up when I plug it in to the USDM harness? no spark, no fuel, no engine light at start up. EDIT: I did some reading and the ECU needs its harness and AFM.

Ok, so a couple of updates. I got the RC engine and transmission in the car and everything is running smooth. I will note for the sake of discussion here that the throttle bodies on both engines were the same part number and look identical in size. The rubber adapter looks to be the same for both as well.

The engine was a ilttle difficult to get in with 2 floor jacks as I do not have a cherry picker and could not rent one.

Got it running with a jump from its big brother.

I also got it tinted and the HKS muffler and exhaust done this week. I will say there must have been something wrong with the old system, because this feels like a new car now.

Would you be willing to part with the WTA intercooler and the parts for it from your old motor? Pm me.

I'm impressed that you got the engine out and in with just floor jacks. I have a few questions if you don't mind!

1) Where did you get the 3SGTE RC motor?

2) Did you do any maintenance before installing? Clutch, timing belt, seals, etc?

3) More pics!
