Default Turbo kit help

I Just installed my turbo kit. Car runs drives etc... my issue is reverse and turning, when I engage the clutch in reverse or turn the wheel right or hit a big bump the rpms drop and car dies

I'm using voodoo box and msd timing box

Any help would be great guys

Sounds like your wiring is fucked up. Check the steering linkage, then the suspension on the right side, and finally at full steering lock to see if any wiring is connected/moves with the steering. If none of that is identifiable as the problem, suspect a faulty ignition switch or wiring at the steering column. How many pounds of keychain do you have hanging from your ignition key?

When I was installing my kit the wheel was turned to the right and locked but I unlocked it and moved the wheel freely as needed... I didn't think it would kill my car when I would be driving after the install, im at work now so I can check after

I'm guessing you wired up the wires bad. And something is shorting, or coming loose when you hit bumps. Double check the hacking you did to wire up the doodoo. How did you tap the wires for the doodoo anyways?

Looks like I'm not the only one that finds irony in the fact that the ONE thing we told you not to use/go with ended up to be the one thing that's not working right and causing you trouble

I am going to I was on m.net snd someone else had the same issue with the ground on the cas I had to hack up for the msd

With the doodoo I used 2 connectors supplied and I didnt wanna keep cutting wires so I would strip two points snd cut the rubber insulation leaving exposed copper but the wires is still connected then wrap poodoo stripped wores around the exposed copper, its taped for now while I tune but I plan on soldering and sealing the connections I might have to do thst sooner thsn I expected though

No you won't.

You're going to continue with this piece of ****, continue to get ridiculed, and eventually fade away from this site in shame while your wiring constantly shorts from the tears you shed upon it.
