Thanks....Its not really that bad if you think about it.....You only need 1 gallon of the red and then mix it with distilled water...

The premixed stuff is $20 a gallon and you would need 2 of them

I would pull out one spark plug and while still connected to the coil crank it to see if you have spark.. If you do smell inside cylinder with plug out to see if you smell fuel if you smell fuel and see spark than it's something else.

^^^ +1

Catmand3w - sorry missed your call..been busy , had to bring my son in law to the hospital for an emergency and am still waiting here. As 97-sc300 had said, check if you smell fuel or have spark first . If you have both then it's something else.

Video sounds like you either have no fuel being injected or no spark ...

Checked plugs.....I am not getting any spark....I turned key to on position and checked Coil #1 and I am not getting any reading on multimeter.....Also I cannot smell fuel when I remove the spark plug...

Not getting any spark or fuel into cylinders.....

Also I wanted to indicate that my intake manifold is powdercoated could there be a grounding issue?

Looking for some advice on where to start troubleshooting...

Are you using the gte ecu or a standalone right now? If you have the grounds connected to the intake manifold they should be connected to bare metal parts, they will not generally ground through a powder coat, so it depends where you bolted those couple grounds to.

Thanks....I have double checked the grounds and they are good....I also checked continuity between t all 6 injectors to the 80 pin and they are all good. Checked cam and crank sensors for continuity..they are good...I know my wiring is good....

Sending my ECU off to Gerrb so he can check it in one of his cars....

Yep...I think I figured out the problem but for safe measure sending it off to have another set of eyes take a look at the harness for me...

Got the lip mounted and sanded....Just need to add some paint to it...I kinda like the look of the bolt heads on the lip gives it a nascar look lol...







I am going to finish the lip with roll on bed liner that I have leftover from my truck....It goes on thick and has a textured finish so the lip doesn't have to be perfectly smooth...
