    the car is a 97 EK JDM SiR (b16a)

    Iv just got my car running after a rebuild but the idle is all over the place, iv reconnected everything as far as im aware. there was a sensor in the intake that a wire had broken but i reconnected it temporarily, the 02 sensor is not connected either but i have run the car with the 02 in the past and the idle is fine.

    please help!

    Vacuum leak? Which sensor had the wire broken? It could be the iacv or fitv. I'm pretty sure that only obd1 motors had the fitv tho.

    It was a major vacuum leak, i just threw the engine itake back on half arsed to see if it would run so i just used the easy to get too bolts at the top, but obviously there was a gap at the bottom, its fine now
