I have a 98 zx9r the engine went in it so I brought a used one. It turn out to be a 2000 engine. The 2000 engine does not have a Cam Position Sensor. How can I make the 2000 engine work? Do I have to change the computer(ECI) and wire harness? Can anybody help?:banghead

Yes you need everything and also the exhaust header is different so you need that to.

Thanks Droz32, Looks like its back to the drawing board for me. It will probably be cheaper for me to find the right motor than to change everything over.

I had the 2000 engine installed with the 1998 exhaust, they mounted with no problem.

yeah the headers fit, but they do not fit right. The 98-99 has a smaller collar on the headers. I bought a hidle exhaust on ebay. The guy claimed it woulf fit 99 but it would not. I took the headers to a mchine shop and had them take the collars down to the right size. I may still have some adapters in my garage from when I bought my micron system...ill look and you can have them for the shipping cost(if I didn't can them)

Thanks Highjacker, If you have them I will take them. Just let me know, I will send you the shipping cost. So far I brought a set of Dyna coils and ignition. It is almost finished being installed. Will keep you posted.

Didn't work

OK..I changed the engine, and the wire harness along with the CDI box and I am still not getting any fire to the plugs. I am banging my head against the wall. What am I missing?

You are not missing a thing IT JUST DOES NOT WORK. I have been working on the same thing for two months. I gave up and I am going to sell the 2000 motor and find a 98-99 motor. It sucks I know. Good luck with yours.
