What am I missing here? I swapped a JDM EJ253 in my 2008 OB LTD.

There isn't a pcv sensor plug on the new wiring harness!

Code is p1491. Starts up and sounds good but I have to get this figured out.

The ps hose connect was on a different angle/bend so I put my old one on. I used my old ac. Had to get a few hoses and swapped motor mounts. I think this engine came from an Impreza. Do Japanese engines not use a sensor for the pcv?

JDM has different emission requirements. It might not have one for the PCV. I know they don't have TGV assemblies. JDM does not require the same cold start-to warm regs, so the JDM turbo cars don't have them. There are (4) plugs associated with the TGV motors.

The four codes for TGV removal are P2008, P2011, P2016, P2021.

You might have to get a tune to turn off specific codes.

Thanks, guys. I contacted the vendor. He said I should swap intake and wiring harness . . . Yaaaaaayyyy . . . at least I won't have trouble deciding how to spend my evening. It could be WAY worse. :)

You will get the opportunity to see the condition of all the things you can't get to while the intake is off.
