2002 WRX Won't Start
Working on a friends car, new to Subaru. She popped the timing belt, decided to do a JDM motor replacment , 2001 2.0l EJ20. Used intake from car. all sensors from original car. All kinds of mods, lightened flywheel APC pop off, Front OXY delete (resistor),Perin etc.. Motor will not run, occasional backfire, I have tried the key on/off three times. Traced all wiring to verify no pinched wires. Tried to start without MAF hooked up. Have fuel, spark, air, compression. Any ideas, I am leaning towards ECM failure. One ground wire broke that bolts to firewall, unknown where it is supposed to connect.
