Why do you feel bad? And if you get them pull the tires off and have me paint the rims. Or get them without tires preferably.

They are coming without tires and they are stripped to the bare metal already, think the guy was going to paint them. Because I feel bad when someone else is doing the work! You did paint the last ones so well tho.

No CEL lights. I'm about 99% sure it's the timing. It's gotta be only off by a tooth or so, because it doesn't start too terribly hard, and it doesn't backfire or pop while running..just doesn't run good. All vac lines are plugged in, and re-flashing my ECU didn't help.

When we did Tashas swap it ran awful like timing was screwed up or had a massive vac leak and it turned out that the coulpack was bad. Just remember to check all the small stuff you can before testing into it

Im assuming you used a timing set? If not I have the bar n shit from massive to do our engines.

Side note, so I fixed the laser...kinda. I think I had my battery in backwards... I also feel like a super idiot.

Anyways, I put the new starter in and got her to fire up, but she still aint working right. When I braked hard she died, pooped the hood and the wing nut on the postitive terminal was glowing, and my ground line that I had taped melted my tape :(. Gonna replace that ground line since about 80% of the wire is broke off of the end itself. Im thinking that is why that melted but the positive terminal has me perplexed.

Weird thing, non of my auto seatbelt worked and no cdplayer. Also ran kinda weird, gonna have to look at some shits like fuses. I prolly fubard someting up.
