Hi guys I could really use some help. I have decided to transplant a mivec 1.6 into my road rally Satria. I have fitted the entire loom from the donor car, engine ancillaries. The engine is now in the car. The best way to describe my problem is that I believe the engine is immobilised. When trying to start the engine I can hear the relays clicking in the fuse box but the engine won't turn over. If I feed the starter wire with power the engine will start and run, but then I have a red squiggly line on the dashboard & the rev counter is not working. I am not too worried about this at the moment but I would like to cure the immobilser. Can anyone offer any help or advice on how to remove the immobiliser?

I don't think any Gen1 or Gen2 Mivecs have an ECU based immobiliser. Something else must be wrong...

Yes I think you are right - I must have something wrong. It might be due to donor car being an auto box brelated car .. might think its in gear somehow.
