It will be the crankshaft sensor. What was the year of the donor car? Did you use the ecu from your car or the donor car?

if the wires are nicely cooked, the jiggin around of engine fitment might have finished them off.

Elite now gone.  Bought an X-Type 4x4.  If there had been an Omega 4x4 I would have bought that instead.  We really liked the Omega, but I wanted 4x4.

The codes are easier to understand if you watch the video clip that accompanies the instructions.   :y

Have the plug leads been taken off during engine swap? or maybe the flow and return fuel lines are mixed up?
