Hey guys posted the same thing in my build thread but really need a response.
I finally got the car to start after the manual conversion, turned over and is idling like s**t.
Blowing excessive amounts of black smoke, would stall when let off the gas aswell. Has been running like this with both the auto and manual ecus i have, just wanted to rule out that those weren't faulty.
Had a look in the haynes manual, can't be a possibility of water in the fuel? I just can't tihnk of what it would be, as I've never had this issue before.

Here's a video of the car as it is now, stalls at the end when I try and let it idle by itself.
