    ok, I have a slight problem with my car. Its a 1995 Honda Civic DX coupe. I have a GSR swap and a turbonetics turbo kit on it. For a fuel system I have a Walbro 255, OBX Fuel Filter, RC injectors, Vortech FMU, and an AEM fuel pressure regulator. Now, the car is very hard to get started. its like its not getting fuel or maybe spark. I can hear the fuel pump whining so I know its running. But when I do get it started it runs with a "putt" and if I give it throttle then it bogs down and usually shuts off unless i tap the gas just right.
    http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2490536 heres a link to some pics to show you what I have if I forgot something important. could it be that I need a big upgraded ignition system? The only upgrade Ive done are new wires, NGK plugs and an accel high output coil. PLEASE HELP!
