has anyone other than thunderstorm successfully completed this on a lowport? i tried this weekend and my car wont start and it has also blown a couple ignition fuses (small fuse box between battery and fender). just curious if someone can snap a picture of what wire color goes to which pin exactly. cause i went over everything a few times and i cant figure out where i went wrong.

*edit* when i said lowport, i meant lowport chassis, ie: 94-96 p10

1. where exactly is the resistor located at (99 p11)?

2. 99de dizzy has 2 plugs, does this mean; all wires from this 2 plugs merges to the ve dizzy plug?


no more needing to modify the distributor when swapping in a ve! just use this pin guide and you will be using the VE distributor on the DE harness!!

MAJOR NOTE!!: the vvl distributor has the resistor built into the distributor where as the p10 and p11 have it in the harness. if you have already wired it up and have issues with a check engine code (p1320), cut the resistor out and connect the green and yellow wires coming out of it so the resistor is removed. (sorry i forgot all about that part initially)

VVL-------P10(highport)------------------P10(lowport)------p11
pin1-------(black) cmps------------------pin6--------------pin1 CMPS ground
pin2-------(orange) cmps-----------------pin5--------------pin2 CMPS +12v (small red-n-white wire)
pin3-------(blue) cmps-----------------pin3--------------pin4 CMPS Reference
pin4-------(yellow) cmps-------------------pin4--------------pin3 CMPS Position
pin5-------(yellow/red) resistor*----------pin8--------------pin7 Ignition check (coil -)
pin6-------(black/red) coil-----------------pin7--------------pin8 Coil +12v (large red-n-white wire)
pin7-------(black) transistor---------------pin2--------------pin5 Ground
pin8-------(white) transistor--------------pin1--------------pin6 Ignition signal


*because of how the distributor is designed (see major note) the resistor will need to be bypassed. connect the yellow/red wire for the stock resistor (from the harness side) to pin 5 on the vvl distributor.


^^look ma, VE distributor!!

EDIT!!: changed the highport, camshaft reference and position wires around. got myself a highport distributor and realized i had the wrong wires on the list.

1: The resistor on the 99 and VE are both located internally within the Dizzy

2: Yes


a 99 and a 94-96 share the same distributor so i'd guess it has a resistor on the harness

Ok so couldn't find my old VE plug but here's a pic of one I found in the thread. I've added the Pin #s to help identify the wires. So basically, if you are wiring a VE dizzy to a high port wiring harness here's what you need to do:

VVL------------------------Highport
Pin1 (black)----------------Black (CMPS ground)
Pin2 (small white/red)-------Orange (CMPS +12v)
Pin3 (black/white)-----------Blue (CMPS reference)
Pin4 (blue)------------------Yellow (CMPS position)

Pin5 (green)-----------------Yellow/red (resistor)
Pin6 (large white/red)--------Black/red (coil)
Pin7 (black/white)------------Black (transistor ground)
Pin8 (orange)----------------White (transistor Ignition signal)



So basically example, you would solder/connect the large white/red wire on the VE plug to the black/red coil wire on the highport harness.

Hopefully Monday I'll be able to get over to my car to verify the wire colors for you. Hope this helps some.

correct termination on a 99 p11

VVL-----------------------------p11

pin1-----------------------------pin1 CMPS ground
pin2-----------------------------pin2 CMPS +12v (small red-n-white wire)
pin3-----------------------------pin3 CMPS position
pin4-----------------------------pin4 CMPS reference
pin5-----------------------------pin7 Ignition check (coil -)
pin6-----------------------------pin8 Coil +12v (large red-n-white wire)
pin7-----------------------------pin5 Ground
pin8-----------------------------pin6 Ignition signal

the lowport wiring described in this thread didn't work for. i followed this diagrom i found on sr20forum:

Here is a pinout that was kindly done for us by one of the NZPCC members when he was doing his swap. Easy trick for the JDM SR20DE to SR20VE conversion is that the wires are all the same colour so you just match them up without having to get too technical about it. Hopefully it will be the same for SR18DE conversion too.

VVL------------------------Lowport
Pin1 (black)----------------Pin 6 Black (CMPS ground)
Pin2 (small white/red)-------Pin 5 Orange (CMPS +12v)
Pin3 (black/white)-----------Pin 3 Blue (CMPS reference)
Pin4 (blue)------------------Pin 4 Yellow (CMPS position)

Pin5 (green)-----------------Pin 8 Green/yellow (resistor)
Pin6 (large white/red)--------Pin7 Black/red (coil)
Pin7 (black/white)------------Pin 2 Black (transistor ground)
Pin8 (orange)----------------Pin 1 White (transistor Ignition signal)

Edited above for what worked for me for the Lowport wiring.

another thing i wanted to mention was that i had a hard time getting a good tach signal from the ve distributor. i had what seemed to be a good signal, until i revved the throttle, and then the signal would go to zero for a second before it returned to normal.

this is due to the resistor removal from the harness. i reused the resistor inline with the tach signal wire to the msd8969 and it fixed everything. so do yourself a favor and leave some wire on the resistor when you cut it out. mine was clipped so short that i ended up stealing one from an old b13 harness i had laying around.

sounds like the resistor in your ve dizzy was bad. good call out tho, also helps if you ever switch back to a de type dizzy, will need that resistor, at first I had to simply solder up some 1/4 watt resistors to match the resistance listed in the FSM until I could pull one from a junk yard harness

yes i think its 2.2k ohm. however, i dont think my ve resistor is bad, rather where you are getting you tach signal from.

with the stock distributor and wiring with the 8969 if you get the signal before the resistor (ie. at the ecu), you run into the same problem. now if you grab the signal from after the resistor (right at the distributor) the tach signal is fine. i found this out when i tried to move my 8969 from the engine bay to the interior in my other car.

since the resistor is inside the distributor now, its difficult to get a signal from after the resistor. thats why i decided to add it inline and it works great now.

I am in the process of wiring up my VE dizzy use the highport (93.5 motor) harness using the one posted on the first page in the first post.

However, I am seeing I should have a yellow wire but i do not have one in my harness.. i am getting no spark and no injector pulse. i think i may have switch wires so going to try to reverse tomorrow at work. I am getting my dad to do this while i work in parts all day. I was looking for a VE wiring diagram but all I can find are ECU pin out diagrams which are no use to me at the moment.

Many people have said the colors don't match their harness, I would highly suggest going by the pin # instead of the color. If in doubt, just use a length of wire to test conductivity between the Dizzy pin in question, and your ECU connector, then refer to the Pin Out diagram to make sure you have the right wire. If you mis-wire it, you can burn it out.

IT LIVES!!!! yup, two wires which we thought we mixed up and well they were and it spat and sputtered and i shut it off as i didnt have the filter or MAF hooked up.. that is next, to hook up the N60/2 maf and then run the wide band lines then bolt everything back up.

This is what worked for me.

.....VE PLUG SIDE..........Highport 93.5 DE harness side
Pin 1- Black.................................Black
Pin 2- White/Red........................Orange
Pin 3- Black/White......................Blue
Pin 4- Blue...................................Blue/White
Pin 5- Green................................Green/Yellow
Pin 6- White/Red........................Black/Red
Pin 7- Black/White......................Black
Pin 8- Brown/White.....................White

I this is how I got mine to work and only took one failed attempt
I know I used color of wires and they may be different on another vehicle but this is all i had to go by and i had a 1993 wiring diagram.

^ you and me both.

now i cant go over 2k with out it sound like it is having a fuel cut.
