Do you have the correct computer to go with the engine?

So you installed a variable valve engine? But yours was not? No i do not believe the sensors are interchangeable. When you set up the timing belt which vehicle engine illustration did you use?

What year is the car the engine is now in and what year is the engine?

I too think you'd better match the ECM to the motor!

There is NO DOUBT in my mind that you will require the ECM to match the engine and there is a good chance you will also need to match the wiring harness. Best of luck, just be glad it's not a Ford Focus the key also has to match the ECM!

Yeah...the harness too! Good pickup, AA.
