PM6 is an OBD0 ECU

Code 6 is "ECT Sensor (Engine Coolant Temperature)
defective circuit or unplugged / defective sensor"

Code 10 is "IAT Sensor (Intake Air Temperature)
defective circuit or unplugged / defective sensor"

These are from http://www.hybridgarage.com/tech/codes.html and shouldnt render your car unstartable.

I think it's time you start colour matching.

get a wiring diagram for the y8, and for your car.

find the sensor on the y8, find the plug on your harness that matches that sensor.

since you're still using your pm6 (huge huge mistake btw) you CANNOT use your obd2 distributor

you need to throw an obd0 distributor on there and set the timing.

I think he's right with the timing. My friend had a 2000 GSR motor that was never messed with. He put it in his CRX and the same thing happened. We checked EVERYTHING, then we checked the timing and it was off a grip! Mysterious since that belt was never touched, and it was stock as ----!
