Default Trying to get started with MS3x

Need a little help...

91
Stock everything
Brain built ms3x


Ok here's a little background from Weds to this morning..

Weds - Installed TPS, installed MS, got everything set-up per brains gravy train manual. Car fired up and ran beautifully.... Until I went full retard. I didn't have a timing light at my house, and got impatient. Decided to drive it around the block with VE analyze on, and my USB cable went to **** and lost connection mid-drive. Still seemed to drive ok after cable went and I made it the rest of the way around the block to my house. Tried to re-connect, but cable wasn't cooperating. Decided to attempt driving it as-is 5 miles to the store to grab a cable. Broke down a mile down the road. Thankfully I still had the stock ecu and TPS, so I swapped them back in and went on my way to get the cable. Decided to wait till tomorrow to dig into it again.

Thursday - Tinkered around with it in the garage... Re-installed TPS and MS. Nothing groundbreaking... Still no start.

Today - Found out how to restore to original tune via back-up files... Flashed 1st back-up file and started from the beginning. Re-calibrated everything and set it all up per brains instructions again. Still crank no start situation. With a little throttle I can get it to run but it mis-fires and runs like ****.

Sooo where do I go from here? Will getting a log help or anything? I'm not even sure I know how yet cause I haven't gotten that far but im sure I could figure it out.

Just checked... Didn't seem to be but I cut another piece of vacuum line and ran it through the window and tried again. Still nothing.

Weren't you having issues with TPS wiring/calibration? You're sure that's all resolved?
