I call dibs on the whole car when you forget to tighten a bolt and it makes noise and decide to part it.

Putzki, the issue was over tightened bolts and not at my doing at that. Either way, I will be buying another NA and breaking it as well

First move is fire bombing this piece of horse ****.

Already ******* problems. The coil pack that came with the car was on its way out after checking it. Car sputtered a bit when driving, the tach was erratic and the damn thing barely started without flooring it. I got a new coil pack, installed it correctly, put new plugs in, changed the plug wires and installed a new fuel pump.

Same damn problem and these coil packs are brand new OEM units that I tested again and they are perfect. I checked the wiring to the coil packs to the tach - no issues found. The car is a 94 so the tach signal is shared with the coil packs. The wiring on the car looks like its never been tampered with ASIDE from the horrendous fecal job the previous refugee owner attempted at the MAF.

I re-did the wiring properly and still the issue persists. I disconnected the MAF and the car still runs like sputtering anus. I checked the Intake Manifold for Vac leaks and nothing.

So as of right now, the new NA has me really accepting the fact that I am indeed the definition of insane.

but seriously man, **** all that bullshit.
if there's anything you learned from the previous car is that you shouldn't do random spontaneous ****.

take your time, make this thing right, don't rush **** (which you tend to do like crazy) and it will be a beast yet
