Exclamation K20a engine in 02 Acura Rsx Starting problems

I have a 02 Rsx type s blew the motor at the track and came up with a good deal on a k20a type r motor--- bought it came with everything ecu harness and motor no tranny tho (DARN) put it all in switched the type s harness to the motor and type s vtec solenoid.... reason for solenoid switch is type s harness has two conectors type r one conector........... PROBLEM... runs fine with the Type s ecu i put the type r ecu in it starts bogs and dies---???? very irritating that i bought a type r engine just to run like a type s with cams!!! Heard something about ecu pinout being different the type s ecu is e1 for the fuel pump and the type r ecu is e 10 for the fuel pump if so how do i fix this have never tried messing with wires before on ECUs !!!! HELP PLEASE

if you keep trying to start it with the PRC multiple times , will it still start and die , or not start at all? try grounding the fuel pump wire , im almost sure it has to be done to use it in usdm cars.

thats what it is than no fuel. if you listen good , when you first turn the key to on , youl hear the fuel pump come on for 3 seconds and prime. you wont , lol.

the answer is already posted. unplug the E plug from the ecu , furthest one right with clips UP. looking at back of plug where wires enter it. counting left to right top to bottom. the very first wire top left is E1. unpin that from the plug by pulling the white bar on the underside of the plug down , only comes out very little. and place it in the E10 spot and snap the white piece in tight again.

PS. you need Kpro , lol.
