4port with 6port ecu.

4port engine instal due to a 6port engine failure, the oem 4port engine ecu shows obd2 code u0101 and car wont start.
Any idea of what can i do?
Engine is currently runing with the 6port ecu but showing codes for manifold runer and random misfire on cylinder 2, not able to pass NY Inspection.

If the 4 port ECU is out of an automatic (if it's from North America, it definitely is), then it won't work with a manual trans... the code you have is it crying about missing a transmission. Among other things.

A 6 port ECU won't work with a 4-port engine, the things it's complaining about are missing 6-port parts: the intake runner valves and 2 extra fuel injectors. Not to mention it's mapped for 6 ports, not.. 4. It will never run right.

You're going to need a 6-port to make this all work.

i guess itís what can happen when someone who doesnít have all the knowledge try for first time and then try to search for answers, after a while people comes with good vibes and experience and help. Or like you that only comment trying to make more obvious the fact that someone made a mistake and is looking for help. Thanks for helping, the car community needs more awesome people like you 👍🏽

From what I have briefly read, isn't that form over function?

Not that I am considering it, but what does it exactly do? Just the sound?
