Parts you will need to complete this job:
- Digital Volt Meter
- E10 Plug from GS300, SC300
- automotive grade 12 gauge wire for power
- 4 standard automotive relays
In relation to the E10 connector plug, you will only be connecting the following for now :
The F1 Dash Plug
- E3 – – Cut and connect to Pin 24 on E10 for idle voltage on EFI sensors
- F6 — Igniter power – Switched to 12v via Relay
- F11 – Chassis Ground
Your Ignitor power wire, the F6 pin must be wired to a switched 12v via your Nissan 240SX relays. The rest of the power and grounds can be sourced from one of two locations.
The main body plug for your S13 Nissan 240SX is shown above, and there’s three wires you will want. There is one switched power source, one permanent 12v power and of course the AC relay.
Power your sensors and ECU from these power wires, make sure to avoid teeing into relay wires so that ignition noise does not interfere with your ECU’s operation.
Next is the EFI fuel pump relay and it’s unique in that Nissan wants a ground signal to this switched relay so that it will power your fuel pump. You can bypass this step altogether if you decide to simply rewire your fuel pump directly.
For a complete wiring guide on how to wire a S13 2JZ swap, here is the complete 2JZGTE ECU pinout and every wire you will need for a running 2JZ engine swap.
2JZGTE ECU PINOUT
- Terminal E10 – pin 1 – IGSW – Ignition Switch
- Terminal E10 – pin 6 – MIL – Malfunction Indicator Lamp
- Terminal E10 – pin 16 – Tach – Tachometer
- Terminal E10 – pin 24 – EFIR – EFI Relay
- Terminal E10 – pin 31 – EFI +B – EFI Relay
- Terminal E10 – pin 32 – EFI +B1 – EFI Relay
- Terminal E9 – pin 4 – ECU Ground
- E9 – Pin 4 – Chassis Ground
- Pin 28 – For USDM ECUs only
- Pin 66 – MAF – For USDM ECU’s only
- Pin 65, 69, 79 and 80 – Chassis Ground
You must now connect your starter wires by extending them to the other side of the vehicle where it will connect to your starter and ground straps.
After connecting your F1 body plug so that your gauges and dash will work, you are almost done with our how to wire a S13 2JZ swap.
The Steering Column
There can be many reasons for you to open up your S13 steering column to access the ignition switch. To power your accessories, your gauges or a remote starter, there’s more than a handful of applications you can use for this ignition switch pinout.
Our Nissan S13 has the following ignition switch pinout colors and values for anything you need in our how to wire a S13 2JZ swap guide.
- ignition 2 – black/yellow
- accessory – white/blue or blue
- +12v constant – white
- Ignition Power, Ignition – black/red
- starter wire +12v – black/white
What are the differences between the VVT-i engine and the non-VVT-i 2JZGTE engine?
- Intake Cam and Gear – The variable timing cam and cam gear are not interchangeable with the non-VVT-i version of the 2JZGTE.
- Upgraded camshafts will be expensive if you do not swap cylinder heads.
The exhaust cam and cam gear are the same as any non-VVTi 2JZGTE and thus accept the wide range of aftermarket cams.
What are the differences between the USDM and JDM 2JZGTE?
- – Camshafts – USDM is a slightly better cam profile
- – Larger injectors (550 cc/min slow impedance, requires resistor pack for USDM model vs 440 cc/min high impedance for JDM models )
- – The USDM 2JZ has a EGR and the JDM version does not.
You will need to take this time to wire up the digital translator ( Dakota Digital or something similar ) for the tachometer and vehicle speed sensor wires that must lead to the dash.
