After 3 months of the car sitting because it would not run and having gone over my wiring to make sure it was correct multiple times someone suggested I change it to the "old" trigger configuration since I was using the manual BE trigger info. Switched one setting and it fired right up. You can see the differences if you look at the exploded engine view it should show two crank sprockets, or under the fuel injection section it will show the waveform of the crank and cam and has both I believe.

There is no grounding pin for the BE unfortunately so that will not work, or at least I am 99% sure it won't as I looked for it a while ago as well and it doesn't exist on the wiring diagrams. Your only real option may be open source tuning if anyone has done a BE and you can flash the different ROMs but your easiest and certain solution is to swap the trigger wheels and run the 5mt ECU.

Hope that helps.

Sub'd so I can no longer give false info for others doing M/T swaps on 3rd gen's......
