Question 1965 cobra with 302 racing engine

im in the process of purchasing a 1965 cobra with a 302 h.o. 5l racing engine with a trick flow upper intake, msd ignition, which is also fuel injected. i test drove the vehicle but it seems to bog in second and third and it takes about 6 - 7 tries of turning the ignition to get it started. it also has to warm up before u can drive. now i guess my question is could it be the timing is off because he has an msd distributor cap and it looks turned to much to the left. any help would be much appreciated, thanx

Welcome to the site. It may have a bad plug or a bad wire.Even if the wires are new I've had a bad one out of the box before.I'd check with the simple things first.
