Default Weird Problem on Swap, Won't Start

I have a weird issue on a 2000 RS with a 02 WRX Swap. When I turn the ignition to on position coolant gauge maxes out, fuel gauge drops to zero and fuel pump doesnt cycle. The car was working fine and it just happened. The wiring was done few years ago.

Also sometimes it does start and both gauges work normally, but when I drive it and it hits boost it starts misfiring bad and ends up dying. Right now I can't even start it.

I am thinking it's a grounding issue, question which ground?

How did you find it? Mulitmeter? Or did you just go through and tighten everything?

I'm guessing he went through and tightened everything one last time just to be sure, and he found the problem.

I started inspecting all the ground points and saw that one was loose.
