Joe I had gone over everything and check every clip and ground and sensor I could think of in the car and engine bay, even the fuse and relay boxes thanks to yíallís tips! I basically tore the car apart and cleaned everything up. I had the MAF off when I started it to see if maybe it was a bad MAF, it ran and I shut it off 5 seconds later. I cleaned the MAF for good measure, installed it and same outcome. Ran and idled fine. Everything is hooked up and I suppose Iím leaning towards that plug being chipped.. weird to think maybe it was cracked and then somehow got worse.. Sheíll be heading to the shop once I finish my suspension, for a professional inspection.

I canít thank yíall enough!

In my heart Of hearts I canít shake the feeling you have some sort of a timing issue. Pulled the grenade pin on the tensioner?
Seems silly just the way everything played out smells like timing. But hey, what do I know. If itís starting and idling fine than maybe a chipped plug was enough. I also echo what others have said about putting it on a nice scanner and trying to watch the data pids.

I have had this happen when I put Amazon Plugs (fakes) in my F150 turbo engine. Trashed one in a week and the truck wouldn't run. That was when I stopped buying **** on Amazon. If it runs good, you are OK, but you could have had it running a week earlier if you'd just taken back to the shop that put it together.

I hear what everyone is saying and Iím not running it until I can get more information on everything from a good reader, issue being the shop built the engine, I installed it. They put ngk iridium plugs in it, one was chipped, ive replaced it. Iíve done many things since it stalled and hearing it run was great and I am progressing forward with the build. Itís funny you mentioned the tensioner pin.. I was seriously thinking the same thing. What if. Lol

Itís going back to the shop after I finish up the suspension and I can guarantee all this will be relayed to them and Iíll have them do a full inspection on everything, mainly the engine.
