2006 3V into a 1998 with 2V PCM

I had added this to another thread, referenced below, but thought I would start a new thread. It seems exciting and I hope it can help others contemplating this task.

I have put a 3V V10 into a 2V chassis {motorhome}.

Engine runs for about 3 or 4 seconds, purrs like a kitten, then dies. Restart, same thing. After a few consecutive restarts {5 seconds or less in between} it won't start at all, turns over but won't ignite. Let sit for 10 or 15 seconds, then it would start again running for only 3 or 4 seconds.

No "Check Engine" codes coming up. Maybe not running long enough??

Any help would be appreciated.

A similar post that has been helpful and encouraging:

You would get a LOT more response posting this dilemna in the V10 section... This is for duratec v6 dohc engines of various displacements, and most don't know beans about a v10.
That said, I'd put a fuel gauge on the injector system and watch pressure. You may have something telling the system to shut down the fuel pump {pressure regulator gone bananas} or a filter plugging problem or ???

Oops...

Thanks for responding, I am new, I did not realize until reading your post and loooking up and seekin that this was in the wrong area of the Forum I thought I had selected V10 but must have clicked away on the wrong one in the end.

The problem was a vacuum leak on my throttle body.
