These marks are just assembly lube? They all wiped off, leaving a sweet, freshly honed surface finish?No rust on the cylinder walls. It is all goobed up lube. I cleaned it all up and unfortunately didn't take any additional pictures after I cleaned it. As for the shine on the walls it could be the lighting. I can see the honing pattern on the walls if that means anything...
No idea what all the differences are. You'll need to pull out the wiring and diagnostics manual and do some studying.On a side note...I need an engine wiring harness because the guy ran off with mine. Does anyone know what the actual differences are between the automatic and manual engine wire harnesses? They have different part numbers. BTW my car is an original manual.
I'm not the authority on the Link ecu, you may want to contact Xcessive.Does the link ECU allow you to still have immobilizer function?
There is also about a $600 difference between the 1050x and the 1300x. That is almost double the cost.
