Default Help me get my car running! (MSPNP2)

So just finished setting up and installing my MSPNP2 per instructions found online. Car is a 1993 1.6 stock except for exhaust. Now I haven't done the timing yet as I don't have access to a timing light right now. I want to try and get it running to take it to my brother tomorrow who has the timing light. The thing is, I cant get it to idle consistently and its always wanting to die. Opened up the base map in the mspnp2 file and it fired up after a little cranking but just isn't running right, is this just a timing issue or am I missing something?

**Please note I am new to tuning so try to keep it noob friendly!!**

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: also added quick datalog below

It would be better to have your brother bring the timing light to you. If a newly installed MSPNP isn't running well, and you haven't set the timing, that is the first thing I'd suspect.

BAHAHA so it turns out it was my cruise control vac line.. opened the hood up in the morning and just looked at the cruise control and saw the vac line disconnected! A vacuum leak like that would explain why it was running so bad, I literally started laughing.. Popped the hose back in and she fired right up!! Running great now
