Default JDM replacement engine

I recently purchased a jdm motor for my 03 pathfinder. My mechanic moved basically everthing from old engine over to replacement. Basically just used the long block and heads. Everything moved over without incident but cam position sensor. My mechanic had to mill out the spot on the new engine to mount the sensor. We used the old flywheel. The issue is that it will crank but not fire and throws cam pos code. In talking to the company that sold me the engine they suggested bypassing the sensor. My question is how can you safely bypass the sensor? He said to cross the wires on the harness on the ecm end and "trick" the ecm to fire the coils. What do you think? I can't continue to throw money at this engine swap, but I really need it to work...
