    So you've change the ECU, yes ?
    You've changed the EWS box behind the glovebox (yellow connector), yes ?

    Alright mate. Well i had the original ews in at the time so it turned over. Would that be the reason why no spark?
    And yes to all..

    yes, if you have the 318 EWS and chip.
    Take them out, and throw them in a canal as you will never need them.

    You need the 328 chip, the 328 EWS and 328 ECU.

    Getting fuel in there too ? You should know that, as when you're cranking, you'll see a fine mist coming out of the cylinder with that spark plug missing, and it'll stink !

    Check that you've connected the cam and crank sensors up properly underneath the inlet manifold.

    You can get to the connectors without removing the manifold, just.

    Find the cam sensor, and follow the cable back - You'll come across the connectors easily that way.

    Sort of in the middle of the engine block, below the inlet manifold.

    You don't need a pic - Get the cam sensor, and follow the cable back - You will come across the connectors this way.

    I have only got slow internet and would take me an age to download the image, edit it then re-upload it, so i'll try and describe as best I can.

    Look at the top picture, look at the coolant pipe that comes out of the head, then goes right abit, then goes down.... To the left of that bend, is 2 connectors (You can see abit of red on the left connector), thats the 2 I meant - But looking at your photo, they're already plugged in.

    Make sure they are in securely. I don't think you can get them the wrong way around either, but just have a look.
