I had to do an engine swap in my supra. As some of you may know my other engine, the headgasket went, caused hydrolicing hammering out the #1 cylender bearing, causing it to spin. Poor oil delivery caused the cams to eat up the head...

Anyways, I picked up an engine from the autowreckers, and its from an 87 Auto, while mine is 87 5-speed. My wiring harness was kinda fucked up so we decided to splice the two... not an easy task, but first I let the engine turn over for a while before hooking up ignition leads. Once I did, I barely touched the key and she came to life. I don't have an afm for it right now, so it idled pretty high, but I'm putting one on it today.

Congradulations, lucky bastard. J/K. I just finished a rebuild and I can't get her to start. I think the CPS is out of whack, needs to be re-aligned or some crap. I'm tryin to figure it out. The timing is dead on, but it jus cranks over and backfires through the intake. I'm gonna mess with the CPS today, hopefully I can get it. Maybe I'll feel good like you do, right now I'm bout to kill someone.

BUT CONGRADULATIONS MANE. :D

You don't want my luck... got canned today, finished splicing the harness, the car would barely start, then when testing connections I forgot the ignition was on... crossed a wire... zap, and now no tach, no check engine light... I'm thinking the tccs is fried...
