wiring problem

Ok here's the deal. I have a 78' 280z when I got it it had a drawthrew turbo weber setup. I'm currently trying to put the fuel injection back in. I have a motor from a 82 280zx turbo and the efi harness. There's power at the computer but I can't get the rest of the efi system to work. I've had a few ppl take a look at it and no one can get the coil to work at all. does anyone know what I should do? Or have any knowledgable information? Do they make a after market efi harness that's easier to use?

I don't have the wires going to the coil. I need to re run the wiring for it.

I think that's why the coil won't work then!

Well obviously. I'm trying to find a way to run the wiring but I can't seem to find a detailed diagram of the efi wiring. Do u know where I can find one? Or the easyiest way to run the efi?

Buy a Haynes or Chilton repair manual & trace the wires. Repair books are wonderful!

$150? somebody is trying to rape you.... also, good luck w/ spicing together a turbo & n/a harness... (the turbo & n/a ECU's are very different)
