    I'd say check your wiring, if you didn't get the right wire to the right injector that could be screwing you up. or if your plug wires are going to the wrong plug

    those would be my best guesses
    good luck

    make sure that the swap has spark plugs in it. Does it sound like that motor has compression in it? or does it just almost whistle like? and make sure that you let the fuel pump get the gas to the motor. turn the car to the on position without starting it (30 sec.) and let the fuel pump get some gas into the lines.

    Also check the distributor, it doesn't hurt to redo it. Can't remeber the name of the part put theres something to turn in the right direction, clockwise or counter. A manual would also help.

    ok you dont pull the wire from the cap you pull it off the plug and use and old plug with the end touching a ground and then check for a spark

    what ecu are you using?
    what obd distributor are you using?
    what b16 motor is this on?
    what car is this in?

    it helps if you give us all the info.

    The lag at the low end sounds like a fuel problem to me... Sound right to everyone else?
