    You shouldnt. You might have to change the gauges not sure on that. Check to see that you have fuel and spark. Then you can track your problem.

    You sure they are the same? the v6 cars go to 120, V8's to 155mph...

    The reason I say check the clusters is they might have different senders.

    First thing to check is the coil and see if it is getting power.If that is good I would look at the control module and then the optispark. When you changed the engine did you spill any coolant on the opti?

    Black and white are probably O2 sensor wires. Should still start without them just run really bad. I just remembered the vats system. Is the security light on when you turn the ignition? Do you have a service manual? It will give schematics for all the wiring.

    Did you get all the sensors in? Do you have voltage at the coil?

    no not all and yes there is power to the coil just not firing what do i need to do about the security system? a machenic told me 200 to 300 to get it running is it simpler than that

    Then you have to check to see if the opti is the problem or control module. Could also be the pcm possibly. The security system could be preventing the ignition from firing. I am not positive if the chip in the key is programmed to the pcm.
