Default STI DBW Problems during swap HELP

I am currently getting a swap done at east coast swappers and they are having a problem getting the throttle to work. They say it will start and idle but when you give it the gas nothing happens. They swapped the the pedal out already and nothing changed and they swapped the ecu and nothing changed. It is an 04 sti harness with an 05 sti motor and they checked all the wiring and said it was good along with the voltages. Is the last thing to do is change out the throttle body or can it be something else. This is the first time they have had this problem but I was hoping someone else had this problem.

i thought the throttle was mechanical and not electrical.( i may be wrong i havnt actually started my swap yet so i have no experience yet.) so if its mechanical wouldnt you just adjust the cable?

Negative, The throttle on all usdm sti's are drive by wire, which means that it is all done electronically instead of with a throttle cable like the older subaru's.

ive had problems with the pins in the connector. taking them on and off will loosen up the pins and you wont have good connections. i usually pull the pins out 1 at a time and bend the tabs back into possition. i have done this several times on stock sti's and it has fixed the problem. same thing with the pins at the ecm.

Sounds like a good idea but he did say that ecs was getting voltages no?
