Well the car runs.... Yay... Only it's not running right,. actually its running quite rought, and stuff if I know why
So far I've check the cam timing, all seems right here.
Checked ignition timing, is close enough, but I had to change the firing order to get it running....
Checked air fuel ratio's, they are close enough to be right.

I've added and removed fuel with no positive effect, the same with ignition timing, any change causes the car to run far worse.

Its almost like it missing, but there is no evident that that’s the problem.
Its quite hard to get it revving, but once it over 1800 rpm it a lot better

I'm not sure what to do next, but to start changing things back until it starts running right, the only problem is quite a list of changes now, and I've sold off a lot of my old stuff :(

I think I'll start with replacing;
Ignition leads
MSD igniters
injectors
Cam
Fuel Reg,

Anyone other there with any bright ideas??

physical size is pretty much the same.. flow is different. plugs not 100 percent but they might be different as well.

But generally fix ignition issues first...

Not a lot to report, I've been that busy with work I haven't had a chance to look at the car let alone work on it.

I have however fixed the miss. It turned out to be a dip switch wrong on the MSD unit.

I've finished making up the intake pipe and am just polishing it when I have a spare few moments.

I've just found out I'm heading up to Mt Isa in the next few weeks(2500k drive), so that’s going to put project behind again.
When I get back its going to be full steam ahead. And down to the tune…

The only real thing I need to sort out is the idle controller (Its not working) and make a few heat shields up as the old ones no longer fit, they were ugly anyway..

The turbo spools up nice a quickly, and it spins for about 5 times longer then the old one when you turn off the car… I’m very happy with it..
