What do you mean trying to take timing out?

That's pretty much what I'm doing, the only thing I can think of is that a sensor is bad and giving false readings, other than that there's the ecu it self.

so far ignition is good, mechanical timing has been set and reset, cat was bad but I deleted it, and fuel pump and filter are new, also plugs read a bit rich but 2 and I believe 4 were lean, I put in some new ones a couple weeks ago after I replaced the coil and I'm going to check again, compression is also good but I'm going to recheck that as well. Also the o2 sensor after the cat was damaged by the clogged cat so that was just replaced

The differing plug conditions can be caused by the coil, which was bad, so its misleading but ill know more on that today.

Anyone have any input on sensors or was to test the individual sensors?
