Quote from Casey from the FJ thread. Great news!

The PATS is working fine and hasn't caused any problems for us (yet).

There are various other issues that need to be taken care of before the car is actually running, and my guess is we may still run into another wiring obstacle or two, but so far progress is good considering this is a never-attempted (that I've seen) automatic swap into an SVT.
