sailor No RPM connector.

Silly question, got spark?

Didn't read back to see how far it was down, recheck timing & compression after it was all together?

SVTFocus noob When trying to crank I notice I don't have a RPM gauge reading but on the datalog I do. Could this plug be for rpm? If so where does RPM connector plug up at??

SVTFocus noob Well guys it's all back in the car been trying to start it since yesterday still no luck. when I pull plugs they are wet and top of cylinders are looking wet too. Still working with tom on if it's a tune issue or something else. Hopefully it'll be running soon enough. I do have some questions tho on the following pics.
Where does this connector plug into?

And this, does it need to have a vac line ran to it with Tom's tune or no?

And here's cyl 1's wet spark plug

SVTFocus noob Just kidding found it all the guys that helped me suck at labeling can't trust anyone my A/C bracket bolts were labeled lower intake manifold..... If all goes right should be installing this weekend I'll upload the pics after it all. Hope to hear from Tom soon with a base tune for initial start up.

SPIinDisguise Ahh, I have done that many times. Just interior stuff. Thinking I will always remember. An hour later turns into a day or two, and the bolts start to look funny...

SVTFocus noob Just putting all the small stuff together on SVT engine and forgetting what bolts go where any1 got an idea where a great source for engine rebuild pics are? I'm pretty good at figuring it out from pics, I'm afraid I was too cocky and forgot to label some of my nuts and bolts so can't remember it all now.
