my ea doesnt have the pink wire its just got the tfi wires it had my loom i put in for the injection has the pink wire do you think this should be jumped with the tfi somehow



try this,

get a piece of insulated wire strip both ends. Connect one end to the pink wire on the mpi loom you just installed and then jam the other one up the back of the tfi module plug. Push it up into the 2nd wire from the bottom of the plug. should be pink, sometimes pink/blue, pink/white.

now see if it starts!


Have you got a multimeter, you need to check for continuity between pin 2 tfi module and the negative side of the coil plug.

if it's backfiring, maybe you have it out of timing, or even a couple of leads around the wrong way
