So i took off the exhaust manifold and looked down into the turbo. Bone dry. Took off the j pipe. its clean. Took off the intake, dry. Hmm.... so i did some investigating and decided to just take the head off it and inspect the valves and guides... yea.. Took the head to Lorenzo Fast Flow Cylinder Heads in pendal, PA. pretty much every exhaust valve had play which was causing the seals to leak, along with possible poorer compression and crappy leakdown results. You could visually look in the exhaust ports and see the oil in them lol. Had the head cut for straightness, complete valve job and bronze valve guides put in it along with hot tanked. Picked up a new fel pro head gasket using the head studs already on the engine, torqued 30-60-90 in the appropriate procedure.
Get it all back together, start it up, and it INSTANTLY shuts off. Timing is dead on. The car will keep starting over and over but just keeps instantly shutting off. I have a p1300 code. Pulled a plug, they are soaked. Im assuming something is cutting spark. i know i have CAS installed properly (its ON the intake cam). Im leaning towards the ecu just taking a crap on me or a bad CAS. Really hoping cas.
Sorry for wall of text, What you all think!?
