    You need a professional tune.. but to run any turbo other than the stock turbo you will need larger injectors and a better flowing oil pump as well as the tune.


    If you put the stock td04 back on then you will just need a stage two tune. Even your exhaust mods need to be tuned for, but at least with that you can get away with using an off the shelf map, either from Cobb or a reputable OpenSource tuner.




    So neither the rings or the oil pump were replaced? I suppose you could get away with that as long as there was no damage to the old bearings that were taken out. If the old bearings were damaged then the rings, oil pump, and oil cooler would need to be replaced. If you failed to replace those the engine would just go again because there will be little bits of metal in there that will clog oil passages and ruin your new motor.

    Just curious about the whole ring thing, how do you know if one is damaged? I know the ej's making a lot of ticking noise so I'm just curious if it just ticks a lot more or what?

    A cracked ringland will cause loss of power, smoke, low compression, and eventually.. death.

    Sorry to hear about your car.

    To start with get a code reader that will actually read the code.

    You didn't actually reset the ECU by just disconnecting it - you have to disconnect it and step on the brakes to draw the last power out. Do that too.

    See if it starts then.

    It does sound like a possible ECU or more likely electrical issue, or very good chance it is toast.
