Re: Rev limit and engine management problem

igniters and coil packs tend to crack after a few years. this lets in the wet and causes misfires and general ignition issue.
you've changed everything apart from igniter (and ECU) so I am guessing with code 14 igniter is your problem.

Re: Can I turbo my na Mr2 it's an sw20

Ofcourse it is possible the issues are some thoe. You would want a new ECU to tune the engine Knock the 3sge have high compression so you will need to deal with this while charging. Best way convert to e85 im thinking about going for something like this instead on my https://arcsuperchargers.com/fa...

Re: Car not starting, Possible Fuel ECU fault.

68000 miles on mine (109000km) was still spinning but only at 9psi ---- so not enough fuel rail pressure to deliver fuel through injectors at right ratio and rate to burn.
5000 miles after V6 swap so pump had to work harder.

Re: Car not starting, Possible Fuel ECU fault.

sounds like no fuel.

as suggested bridge b+ and FP to give perm batt to fuel pump.
had similar on mine when pump croaked, got fuel flow but not enough to vaporise through injectors, would sometimes pop and bang.
