Hey guys im posting this for my brother that’s doing the swap.

Hey people im looking for some help, Iv put a known running 3.6 10h9h engine from 1/07 4wd auto, into a 9/07 2wd manual, that originally had a 10h9e in it, and it wont run.
I can crank it over and over without generating any error codes, if i disconnect the cam sensor it will start, rev to 4 grand and shut down, and generate a code for cam sensor fault, plug it back up and wont start......
i was told to swap the cam reluctors of the original motor onto this one, read they should prise off the gear, but i cant get them off, I have belted the **** out of them but no luck. Is my only option to remove the gears and swap them over. Anyone have any ideas, cheers......

Just swap the cam sensors themselves. You may also have to swap the crank angle sensor too.
