First off, why did you take out the S-AFC? It was probably adding fuel. So now that is done, let's go over a few things:

1. When setting your timing, did you jumper the diagnostic box to set the car in timing mode?
2. It sounds like you are not reading your timing light correctly or are looking at the wrong marks. Regardless, with a greddy turbo kit in stock form, you should be at 6 degrees of timing.

You got a warning for being ******* retarded and typing like a child. Learn to type like an adult or find another forum. Well, preferably "find another forum".

I took off the S-AFC because it didnt have no tune and as soon as i took it off it ran better then before.
I did hook up the jumper cable and i bought the manual for it and saw wat marks to look at and to which ones to line up..

I have no doubt you're looking for guys packing huge dicks.

In other news, I'm totally capable of capitalization and punctuation when posting from my phone. I suggest you learn to do it or I will taunt you a second time.

Why the **** did you remove the air/fuel controller? That was retard dumb move number 1.
Put that **** back and set your timing to stock. If you are daily driving the car, make it as simple as possible for your "new to the turbo world" experience.

It sounds like you want us to help figure out what you broke from the start; you are going to blow up that engine or warp the head if you keep ******* with the timing violently like that.

Sorry, but on this forum we respect the language and communicate like adults. Please, write like an adult or I'll be forced to ban you. I get that you're destined to be a Wal Mart greeter, but please consider that most of us aren't and hold ourselves to a higher regard when communicating.

Its a matter of common courtesy, you're coming here asking for help and you can't be bothered to answer questions or take the time to speak English that we can understand? Just keep doing WOT pulls until the problem fixes itself.

Also, how the **** are you adjusting the timing, exactly? You do know there is a "diagnostic" mode, right?

Dear mystery156,

If you do not reason with our requirements we will not help you. If someone was on your door step calling you a dickless ******* but wants to use your phone, do you let him? Probably not.

However, if you do not agree with our methods of communication and reliable running miatas of enjoyment, there is a site full of people that would happily take in your frantic rants of disregard and belligerent broken english over at www.clubroadster.net; and a cat name Hyper will surly show you the way.
