that's the whole reason why i posted this in more than just one place on more than just one forum. i wanna do my best to get this info out in the open so that its not thought of as a $7k swap like tech2 and myjzswap.com make it out to be. i built my own mounts (engine and transmission) didn't have to cut anything and now that my spare motor is running independent of a car i can concentrate on wiring up the motor that's installed in my coupe. its not a pity party, nor am i mad that i had no help. one guy gave me more the info and i applied it and POOF, it runs.
the main thing i'm trying to get across by this rant is the fact that there's little to no info on this swap and i wanted to contribute
i still can not find the supposed ik1/ij1 plug ANYWHERE on my aristo harness, do i even need it? The toyota FSM says the plug is supposed to be in the lower passenger side kick panel, but wouldnt that be a BODY harmess?
You can't find it on the aristo harness because it most likely didn't come with the harness(it's part of the body harness) so you will have to depin from the big weird plug(which is what ij1 connects to) to wire it up. Its been a while since i saw an aristo harness but it should be something like this...Follow your wiring harness to the end where the ecu plugs are. I think there should be 2 plugs only and the ecu plug will have a bolt, the other might have a bolt too, I can't remember. Plug the ecu plug into the ecu, the other one that doesn't plug up is the weird plug I'm talking about, not sure what it's called but this is the plug where ij1 and ik1 plug into. Also, the other 40 pin ecu plug, does not come with the harness, if the place you bought your engine from from didn't supply it with your ecu you will have to source that plug out.
