Got the car about 3 weeks ago.was talking with the owners for about 3 months. I was gonna purchase the car with a cracked cylinder head on a "fresh short block rebuild" but had to back out at that time. A few weeks ago I hit them back up to see if it's still available and they put a spare head on that got a "rebuild" and wired in a 2g maf(with all the wires open and laying on eachother) and hardwired a maft and shorted it. they couldn't figure out why the car would start, rev to 5k and die. Soldered back in the 91 maf pigtail, and bought a maft translator for a 1g dsm, set the dials. Also found intake manifold not bolted on tight. Replaced intake gasket and car runs at normal idle had to fix alot of bullshit wiring hack job on engine harness which now lead me to buying a full connector kit and building a new harness. 20g turbo has more play then 2 maxed out strippers on cocaine. Gonna have to go through this thing top to bottom, bolt to nut to make sure this kid isn't setting me up for failure with his hoshposhed work.
