like i said in the FS thread, it's barely out. We can almost get a feeler under the straight edge, between 2 and 3.

Did you miss a ground at the back of the engine? Everything plugged in, and no missin parts?

EDIT:

Have you checked the timing marks for the belt? Maybe the cams are off a tooth?
Compression test?

Dave,
5k mile engine, i didn't pull the valve cover or the front cover, so i hope the timing is not off..

haven't done a compression or leak down, hopefully that's not the problem, because even though the engine has a warranty, my time doesn't.

Coil wire came unplugged under the dash from previous emanage install.

Car is running well, just gotta get it to idle below 2000rpm.. and do a little wastegate PID tuning, since I recirculated it, and it's spiking a little..
