Ok, my setup... B18a1 block p30 pistons Comp stage 2 cams P/P head shaved 12 thou B16 oil and water pumps Stock cam gears 12:1 C/R And my problem. I fired the engine up, set my ignition timing to stock. I know my head has been shaved so my cam timing is 1 degree retarded. The engine will idle kinda low, and a little rough, but i figured the roughness was the cams, thats what it sounds like. It will free rev just fine. very responsive. I take it out on the road today, and it stalls pulling it out of the driveway. I fire it back up, get it on the street, and has no power, wants to die. To me that was a cam timing issue but i could be wrong. the ecu i was trying to break the engine in on is a Pr4 stock LS ecu. i was gona play it safe for right now and not engage vtec. Could those symptoms be an ECU related problem? Also will only one degree of cam timing cause the problems i have? If both awnsers are no, what should i check? My b16 ran just fine in it, with the same setup.
