Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

You now need to have the engine reprogrammed to the ECM as the engine is with a different fuel pump . not having the pump programmed to the ECU the immobilizer will stop you from starting the engine .(Code P1608)

If you can not program, you will have to refit your old pump from the old engine to the new engine ..
