Well, I got done with my bird after 3 weeks of downtime. Put a new K&N filter on, and a new ported out n/a head, and a ranger roller cam. Got it running, set the timing(spark). Seemed to have a little bit of ticking. Wasn't too concerned as it was just freshly installed. Drove it a bit, parked it and let it idle...then out of nowhere it seems like it is missing a cylinder (tack goes down to 500 or so and jumps around...engine almost dies). Then flattens out and idles smooth at about 1000 rpm. Then I hear a sharp click, and the engine starts ticking louder. I am pretty sure it is something with the new cam, I don't think I missed anything...but I am not sure what the deal is. Going to look into it more tommmorow...

Carefully check all vac hoses, turbo, TB, IC hoses for leaks, cracks, etc. SOunds like you could have a vac leak.
