Yeah, from unplugging a few fuses. It was for my EGR and Idle valve, because the fuse to run them was still out. It's been reset with my odbII scanner and all seems well.

yeah, well I've never done that before. I tried it before I swapped and it didn't work, sparked like hell (battery + to the starter switch terminal) and didn't turn the motor.

I dunno if it's just because I have a new starter, but the thing sounds odd during cranking. But as long as it continues to start...whatever.

Maybe the starter is newer/stronger so you get higher cranking RPM?

yeah my exhaust rattles a bit when cranking it seems. i also had one of the bolts not quite to torque so it might have been play on the gears. all is well now though.
