Ihe car has new plugs & wires, new fuel filter, new cap, new rotor. The car can hardly get out of it's own way. It almost feels like it's not getting enough fuel. I also installed a 255lph fuel pump...
Thanks!

We need WAY more info!!!!!!! What diagnostics have you already done? Is the CEL on? HAve you checked fuel pressure under load? Have you checked ignition timing (and cam timing as noted above)? Does it idle well? WHat pressure does it boost to and at what RPM?

Any tears or lose hose clamps on the vam to turbo inlet hose? tears or loose clamps on the compressor outlet to IC? the ic to throttle body? Might you have switched a couple plug wires?

The only code it had in it was a 42. The fuel pressure at idle is 39psi and at 18lbs of boost the pressure is 65 to 67psi. Ignition timing is 10 degrees with the spout connector removed. I have checked everything that I know of except the timing belt....

I forgot to say that I am running NGK TR6 spark plugs gapped @ .035. What do you think?

Just checking, did you put the spout back in? Is the spout making good contact?

Spout is connected, there was a bit of build up inside the spout terminals. I checked to see if the timing was advancing by putting the light on it when I connected the spout, all looks well in that area. Someone said something about having a couple of plug wires crossed, would the car have a dead misfire if this was true? The firing order is 1,3,4,2 right? # 1 is at the front of the car right? I am going to check the timing belt today to see if it's lined up right.

1-3-4-2, correct. 1 in front, also correct.

Have you checked for a plugged cat?
