run a few resistance tests on the coil. do you have a haynes manual?
with a cam! you will need to adjust the idle speed! try turning the set screw 1/8th turn at a time. i've adjust mine several times. i do it by ear, but a tech will tell you theres a special number in the pcm that your looking for. "iac counts" thats the term. BA! if i change the pcv- i adjust the throttle stops. if i change the air filter- i adjust the stops. yup! i just spent $1k on the exhaust- i adjusted the throttle stops. let me know how it goes from there.

My throttle stop screw hole has a metal plug in it? Do you just pop that out or something? Damn thing is in there good.
