No clue, I sent some things back to Jon for evaluation. Honestly don't know if there is even anything wrong with them. I have checked and rechecked everything to the point I need the peace of mind that the TIPM, jeep ECU, and canbus box from Jon are operating properly. I don't like the thought of chasing an issue I cant find. When it comes to those components I don't have the ability to plug into them and see whats going on. All we can do on our end as consumers is just plug everything in correctly and hope for the best.

Understand. I am just thinking of the easy things first, usually that is what bites you when working on this stuff. Good luck, hope it is something simple. I know Jon will figure it out and get you going.

I know about the hooking things up, I got Hptuners so I could adjust things as need, heck I still cant figure the tuning out. One table after another to adjust this and that,

On a more positive note, this sure is sexy considering what I sent them.

It's amazing how much they can charge for a sticker.


I like the extra touch with the safety wired bolts. It shows the mindset that Howe has. They work at a different level than most.

Interested to hear what Jon comes up with.

This isn't exactly normal territory with everything I'm doing, there's just as much chance that I've fucked something up as anything. I just want him to look over the meat and potatoes of the electronic shit to be triple sure it's in order.

Oh, I hear ya. Hopefully your build will help me avoid "some" of the fuck ups I'm sure I'll do.

How difficult was it to do the swap without lifting off the body? I thought you had to do this in order to complete the swap. I have a '14 4dr jku that I want to do the swap. 5.3 or 6.2 6-10x pulling the 2000# trailer in the mountains of WA state.

Quoted from an earlier post of mine.

"I really didn't have the facilities available to me to remove the body. I did learn a couple of tricks along the way but all in all I have not run into one issue where I thought "man I really wish I could have removed the body" in some instances I was glad it was on to work around fitment issues WITH the body."

I agree with Dkjeep. Doing it with the body on really isn't a problem and if you haven't done a swap before it lets you know where the "gotcha" clearances are. The only time I wished I had access from the top of the frame was installing the transmission because the tranny jack decided to try and kill me.

Well, Jon tested all of my components on another vehicle and there were zero issues. They are on the way back now, He called me again when I got home and we walked around all of the connections again and I may have possibly found out that the big connector right between the battery and the TIPM wasn't plugged in all the way...... I don't remember unhooking that connection but it sure wasn't connected properly.

We will find out tomorrow for sure when my stuff gets back to me. I will feel like a dumbass if that was it, a relieved dumbass but still a dumbass.

Fingers crossed!

I know I had mine disconnected when I swapped out the battery tray.

It happens. I disconnected the driver side ABS sensor wire during the swap for some reason. Only found it out while trying to solve my BRAKE code issue and couldn't remember doing so.

Hopefully that connector does the trick. Better to feel like a dumbass, than at a total loss of what a problem could be.

My dad always said, "everyone has 15 seconds of dumb-shit each day. Some save it up; others it's just painful." I have those moments where one mistake takes me three days to find it and fix.

At that rate I've spent just under 3.5 solid days being a dumb shit. Don't know if I should feel good about that or not. I'd think the true number would be in years though.

Ok so...................... apparently I am a dumbass. Once the large lever lock connector that is between the battery and the TIPM was connected PROPERLY.......... everything works! This is what happened, Once the TIPM and the battery are in place there is literally just enough room for that connector to nestle down between the two and rest on the bottom of the battery tray. I eyeballed it at least a dozen times while I was problem hunting and it honestly looked fine but I couldn't pull it up to check it due to not enough slack in the harness, tight space, etc.... well when I got the TIPM out to send to Jon for testing I went ahead and pulled the battery to put on the charger and there was plenty of access to that connector. When Jon called and was walking me around the jeep after he checked all of my components out and found no issues he mentioned that connector and for the first time since I put all of that in I could actually get my hands on it. When I flipped it over I immediately saw that the cam lock lever was "off track" and wasn't pulling the 2 ends of the harness together at all. The other side looked fine and that was the side that I was visually checking all of those times.

So, it works now and I have primed the engine oil. I am off to get gas and it will be started! Video to come asap.

Glad you got it sorted. That's the kind of shit that makes grey hair.

Are you running that tune you sent me?

Not gonna lie, I kind of have a semi to hear that thing run.

lol, its loud AF, like the neighbors all came outside and were lookin around. I cant in good conscience start it again right now at this hour. I didn't video the first time because I wanted to be paying attention to things. I will get a video up tomorrow afternoon for sure.

I am running that tune, I sent it to Jon and he made some slight adjustments to it before he installed it on the e38. Not sure what all exactly to be honest. I know he had to do something to let the convertor live and I had him alter the idle speed to 900rpm as that's around where this cam likes to idle. It sounds really tough, those mufflers add quite a bit of deep tone to it.
