So ryan (gdnimrod) came over to help me out this morning. We did a vac leak test and found a small leak on the blow off valve flange. Problem is still there. The motor holds compression just fine also so no issues there either.

Right now its comming down to two issues: ECU related or Wiring of which nothing has changed from before when the car was running properly.

I FOUND THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!

For anyone wanting to swap out your solid lifters for Hydraulic lifters, you need to use the NA cam shafts. Im using hydrualics with my MSM cams and its not working out right at all.

Taking the head off and getting back to eh builder to have it done right.

The sad part is that is so true. Within 10 minutes of driving out of the dealership, i smacked a road cone that was just sitting in the middle of the turnpike at 11:45pm and smashed my oem msm lip.
