still nothing with the new ECU. What the **** guys. I have been without my car for almost 5 months now and I need to get this solved. We are thinking it is the EWS2 but why would that cause a problem if the EWS wire is cut and the motor doesn't even have EWS.... I am thinking the EWS is cutting fuel and spark but no one has had this problem I have been searching everywhere...

Alec...I've done several ti swaps. Even swapped ATX to MTX. There really isn't a lot of info as you've found out. As far as this "green" wire to cut for EWS. Mine was actually purple. Best advice I can give you is to get real friendly with the electrical schematics. The EWS looks for a few "Yes's" which is 12v before it allows fuel and spark. Even if you jump the fuel pump straight to 12v it still wont start because the EWS has not been satisfied and wont allow the coils to fire. So with that being said...you can jump 12v to the output side of the EWS to satisfy the states and allow whatever is down the line to activate.

Good Luck and remember if it was easy everyone would be doing it
