Hard start

So I just get my rebuilt motor put in. I was Able,
to Add about 100hp through it. Catch is my car doesn't like to start reliably. I've checked Nd replaced the fuel pump. Replaced the cam and crank sensor. I bought the TMS chip for 3.5 hme and 24# injectors.. Still nothing even tried differant computer and nothing... I tried my computer in Nother m3 and started right up.. Now the guy is think the wiring harness.i haven't been able to find a 95 harness. But I've been told I could use a 94-95 harness but would have to manually disable/by pass the EWS. Am I on the right track??

Just curious, how did you add 100hp to your engine? Also, who is Able, and when did you stop being him?

Otherwise, you already have a thread regarding your wiring harness. Please refrain from creating multiple threads about the same thing.

Your other thread is about wiring harnesses, and this thread is about wiring harnesses & EWS. What am I missing?

In the other thread I was directly asking if a particular harness would work. The second thread is implying for opinions and advice against the hard start issue. Forgive if its I te wrong spot I haven't been on the forum much

Okay, it is somewhat hard to understand what you're writing. So you have the TMS chip for a 3.5 MAF and 24lb injectors. Do you actually have a 3.5" MAF and 24lb injectors? Also, check for vacuum leaks, and verify that your fuel pump is working correctly, and confirm your fuel pressure at the rail.

I'm also still curious to learn how you got 100hp over stock without a turbo or supercharger.

Duh.

Any errors in this post are purely Swype's fault, not mine.
