    Hmm.. not sure how much assistance I can give with that description. Did you use the 03 or 02 wiring harness?

    It sounds like the wires for the starter are either swapped around, or shorted to B+. That is much more likely than the ignition switch being stuck or shorted in the START position.

    What parts were swapped over from the donor car to this one? Was this just a long block swap?
