Maybe cam timing unlikely though...
Is it a Log style manifold????

Ahhhh have you plummed the BBM correctly??? If the Manifold is on HIGH rpm mode it will be a bloody pig off the mark. and normal up high.

you need to run wires to the ECU to setup the manifold switching...

you will need the solenoid from an EL its behind the wiper washer bottle and you need all the piping to go with.
