Motor is IN, Throwing Error Codes... Need some help

Hey Guys,
Finally motor is in....

Ive got 3 problems

Problem 1 :

Error code: 22 then became 21 ( i had a 22 error code which was Vtec wasn't hooked up or not working) I switched my Old Vtec Solenoid off my other ITR to the new One and it threw an Error code 21 which is Vtec Valve

I heard speed sensor if its not working properly my vtec wont engage but everything seems to be ok

Problem 2

Also my cars giving me an Error code 36...traction control on JDM ECU how do i get that to turn off :|

Lastly, theres a hose thats on the Intake manifold at the very right bottom i don't know where that hose conects to on the firewall?

Cars idling a little funny cause the dumbasses at the other place didn't give me the right computer thankfully i have my oldcomputer Nick chipped for me...

Any idea if nick could rechip / retune it? and how much just for the ecu to adjust the fuel etc and the idle cause the idle is going up and down ever so often....

We also broke the TPS plug ( the one that plugs into the TPS)
but it seems to be ok cause the prongs were there and everything just the covering sanpped off and we just rewired it.
If anybody could help out
Give me a shout

check the wiring of the vtec solenoid to the ecu.

The code 36 is a BS code and will not cause the CEL to come on, but will show up when checking the codes. Every single ecu i have ever used the JDM b16 program on does its not a problem and won't cause the car to run funny or anything.

The car is probably idling funny b/c you have a vacuum line that isn't hooked up to anything. Either hook it up to something or plug it. I don't know what engine you put into what car b/c you didn't mention it, so i can't even begin to guess what you left unhooked.

I can burn you a new chip for your ecu (PM me for more info) with the right program on it, for the new engine you put into your car.
