power ram is on a distinguished road
Default Truck wont run rite, need help..

ok i got an 88 ram with a 318 "first year injection". i cant get it to run worth a dam, the engine was redone by the previus owner its a stock rebuild.. however the truck has had the cat removed, all the emissions looks to be removed and it has a cheap chrome air cleaner setup on it rather than the stock one.. it looks to me that there should be a sencer in the factory intake tube that is not hooked up or something along them lines. the truck runs but has "NO POWER AT ALL" and runs real lean also it spits and sputers sometrimes and wants to shut off... any idea how i can get it to run rite guys, this is my first time messing with a throttle body injected dodge truck.. thanks

Not sure where to start . Hard to diagnose something like this over the net . Don't really know whats been disconnected and what may be hooked up incorrectly .
