EJ Swap almost complete...

I think I've got that handled, too. At least hooking up the EJ harness. What I want to know is (for those of you who've installed into a carburated car) what wiring can be removed from the EA? Can I just cut off the old connector that went to the 1.8L and tape those wires off? How about the two smaller wires that went to the alternator (not the big white one, but smaller two - I think one is black/white and the other is white/red)?

Sometimes I get power, sometimes not. The chime that says the key is in in ignition chimes (mostly), but I don't always get my dash lights coming on or anything happening at the starter. Right now, I have the wire from the EA harness going to my starter, as I didn't seem to have power to the red/yellow wire from the ECU that plugs onto the back of the starter. Both ignition and fuel pump relays click over when the key is in the ON position, and I can hear my fuel pump kick on at this time too.
I don't think I have any loose wires, as I crimped and soldered everything I spliced into, and all my fuses and fusible links are in good shape. Any ideas?
Also, still wondering what I can eliminate from the EA harness. Thanks!

The EA82 headlights' harness and engine harness sprout off from each other right there inside the driver's side fender.. some of those wires run all the way back to where the stock ECU is/was. It would be nice to completely remove all the old wiring from the car but it would add more work than I feel it's worth unless you are perhaps doing this to a long-term project car.
As far as your problem goes, I'd double check all of the power and ground splices in your harness as well as check all of the relays you're using. Others will chime in with other ideas I'm sure. Good luck

Well, I feel silly...apparently, when I put in the electric fuel pump, I forgot to take the clamp off the feed line from the tank I used to keep fuel from pouring all over me. That's why it kept sounding like it wanted to fire but wouldn't. In any case...it's alive! :banana::banana:
Congrats! You'll love having that engine!
