the leading plugs are wired together, so if one is fouled, neither one will fire

right.. leading plugs are together i have old & new plugs. So i've been rotating those around and cleaning them often due to the fact i'm getting gas into the combustion chamber.



I now know my trailing isn't firing either.. which is just another great thing to find out..



so if my ecu is sizzled.. am i going to have to break the damn bank AGAIN and go stand alone.. like say vosko's PFC he has for sale. or maybe haltech hehe.. argh more money to invest .. damn joo turbo ii!

if one trailing plug is fouled to the point that it wont fire, the other will not fire either. it breaks the circuit.

i'm an idiot.. it's my CAS.



I removed the CAS.. set a plug on the strut bar turned the key to ign spun it and i got spark...

place it back in.. no dice... no spark.. wth!?!? I'm lining up the yellow mark on the main pulley.. then i'm lining up the two lines on the CAS.. sliding it in.. making sure it doesn't turn through the peep hole.. no luck though no matter what it won't produce a spark once it's in...

how do you know its not sparking when your cranking it over? also, lining up the marks and sliding the CAS usually puts it about 18 degrees off. So make sure to adust it with the timing light when you get it started.
