Hi,
Sorry to drag up an old topic, but I am struggling to find what I need to know. I have a 1993 mh barina which had and accident. I ended up getting gti bumpers and seats and spoiler in the repair process, so the car looked better. My g13ba engine was smoky so I bought a g13b and ecu harness. I also fitted a rear sway bar and have rear disc brake setup ready to go. I have replaced all seals, gaskets etc and painted the g13b, and installed it. Here's where it got messy. My engine harness wasn't compatible to barina body harness. I bought a gti front body harness(slightly tampered with but seems to be all there), FI relay, walbro fuel pump, ignitor and cluster etc. All has gone into car ok but I have no spark, my check engine light and fuel pump only kick in when I bridge 2 wires at the FI relay plug, and my engine cranks over but no signal on the tacho. My ecu and harness are ratty looking and suspicious, but could be fine as there are lots of little issues that could be the cause too. I think my donor engine and ecu harness are mk2 or 3. I think my donor body harness is off a 94gti, but I didn't pay enough attention because I only saw that it had the large square plugs that matched my ecu harness at both fuseboxes. If anyone can offer direction or advice I can be much more specific with my questions. Apologies for my "noobness"!.

Hi Mate,
I am going to have a crack at it myself, but have no idea how far I will get so if I could get some details of the mobile suzuki guy I would greatly appreciate that. This wiring bit is getting tricky, with my tampered, dodgy harnesses and all. I have found I have no signal to trigger my coil and not sure where to go next. Thanks heaps for replying, and when convenient can you let me know this guy's details or how to get in contact,
Regards, Mac

The ecu voltage supply was dropping to 1.8 volt when the ignition was turned on. Tracked it down to the power supply for the main relay some wires had been reversed in the socket.

Hi all,
Finally after all manner of tests, leaks, you name it, it all went wrong, I mean every little thing!.
It is fixed and working like a charm. A huge thanks to Dr Suzuki for pointing me in the right direction every time. I recommend to anyone having issues to call him, everything he said and did was right on the money. My car is so good now, I just have to get that roof spoiler to fit and it is finished. I will get my pictures together and put them up soon.

Sorry, I exaggerated. Brakes are not complete gti yet. I still have to purchase rotors. I hear the handbrake cable can be re-routed and it will work, but after all the trouble I had and money issues, I am having a short break before getting to the brake job.

Need advice, feel free to ask. Done it before.
Cheers.

Mac i was happy to help you out by giving you advice and not doing the complete job myself and charging you. I realised you were mechanically minded but just didnt have the diagnostic skills that i have come to acquire over many years of doing this.

That and you are genuinely a nice and polite guy you were a pleasure to do business with even with your scary dreadlocks , lol.

Some pictures of the car as it is now, more paintwork to be done when I can afford it. I just bought an RB25det conversion kit for my old hr31 skyline so that is going to eat my money for a while, but I will get back to improving the barina after that.

Very nice, I quite like the hatch spoiler, but where is it in the second pic?
Also, how'd you go with the brakes?

2nd picture was taken before the spoiler was on. I have the hubs, callipers and suspension bits but still have to buy rotors and front hubs/driveshafts. I just spent my budget on an engine/box conversion for my old import skyline, and a full rebuild on my dirt bike engine so brakes are still on hold, but I will get there eventually.
