Mine was dead last year.Everything i did before his death was disconnecting the EGT sensor and connecting it again (was checking for wire connection),when i wanted to start the car,there was no rpm signal....the friend who does electronic repairs replaced it and never had problem again....

Fried mine setting up my fuel pump relay and in a moment of stupidity put 12v on ground. ECU worked fine but no crank signal.

Sent it off to Rob to fix but as soon as it got to his it worked fine, he sent it back and it worked fine for 10,000 miles before i blew the engine up with someting compeltely unrelated :D

This is still an issue, even with the universal harness and provided relays.

Just a heads-up. Sad situation, has caused me many support head aches.
