Yep, E would be my choice. The poor IAT and TPS took a beating in shipping!! I wonder if your compression is higher than a USDM d15z1?

Yup.

Vacuum is vacuum.

So whether you take it straight off the intake from a nipple or install a T and share the vacuum with another source it should all be the same.

I would just use a cheap vacuum T if I were you. WAY easier than tapping a new port.

Nice TPS and IAT sensors by the way Where'd you buy that engine from?

You mean once your engine is back in your might just have to pull it out again? :P

I'll see if I have enough vacuum hose here to finish this today. I still need to get my injectors figured out. After that it's just a matter of connecting the AC, PS, shift linkage, and axles and I'm good to go

Eh, broken sensors are an expected casualty of imported engines. I obtained replacements from the junkyard for free.

I got the motor from Nippon-Motors in Southern California. Shipping was ridiculous, but it was worth it. I think I've sunk over $1000 into this swap when you count the engine, the tranny, the ECU, the conversion harness, the engine hoist/balancer, and other various tools I've picked up along the way.

Well worth it though IMHO.

Definately. ESPECIALLY the investment in tools. I love buying tools, even ones that rarely get used...they're great to pull off the shelf when you need them.

As for pulling my engine again...I'd almost be willing to wager large sums of money that it will be out at least one time within the next 365.25 days for SOMETHING. I always find some reason to tinker hard enough to pull the motor.

vacuum hoses all wired up. The area near my fuel filters is a mess of wires and hoses. I hope it's all plugged in correctly.

I'm having the most difficult time getting the plugs off of the injectors. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

Yea, they can be a pain... the way I do it is by using a small flat screwdriver and pulling over one side of the metal "ring" and then kinda lifting up on that side of the plug so that even if the "ring" does fall back into place, it doesn't lock the plug down. Then pop up the other side and you're done!

I use the exact same method, except I use a pocket knife. Once you've done it about 40 times, you get the hang of it.

I usually use my finger nails, but then again, I don't think most people grow their finger nails out as long as I do (so lazy...)
