    ok i am new to this site but not new to the build/tuner world.
    i am having problems with a motor that was just built and i cant find out what is going on..

    1998 B18b1 bottom end, ls rods, b16a2 pistons, (high compression,tall dome)
    b16 head b16 head gasket. gsr dizzy, i also have a p28 running a b series base map, tune for high compression ls/vtec now the vtech slynode broke so i put a sohc one on. the car has little to no miles, but no vtec... i know it should crack hard. the block has a golden eagle conversion. but just put the head back on. timing is right. vss is now working. i even wired vtec to the ecu and still no change? ive changed the harness twice.

    its also in a del sol.

    ok i have no idea how to work this web site... I have a crx 1990 with a ls swap that has eagle rods with b 20 cams. I bought this car haveing a problem with wireing. The car would run really great when it is cold but when it warmed up it would die..... the whole car is out... wait a few minutes and the car eventually starts back up. A buddy of mine pulled out the wireing harness and tryed to fix it but who ever had it be4 had the wires all messed up. Once we put it back in it would run only below 3500 rpms (in safe mode?) so i tryed to look what sensor we forgot but there was no sensor on the motor but there was a sensor thats just hanging in the engine by it self. JUST CANT FIGURE IT OUT????? So i buy a used wireing harness from the wrecking yard and install it. every thing matches up excepted the two wires for the starter.. and and a few other connectors on the driver side.the ls wireharness dosnt match up with the crxs main wires that go to the ecu. should i get all the wires that go to the LS MOTOR and ecu??? I try putting the black/red with the black/red wire n the black to black. but then when i go to start it. When u first turn over a key it should just turn on the radio and power but the car will be already turning over and if i reverse that it will turn over the normal way.. And im not getting spark PLEASE HELP ME THIS IS MY ONLY RIDE TO SCHOOL. this is very important. HELP!!!!

    sometimes it helps to go back to the beginning to find what went wrong:ph34r: that doesn,t mean rip your motor apart just take good look from beginning to end of your build.
