Re: Ignition Timing 4.0 EL
Just another thought, I once saw a mpi engine that had a cpi inlet gasket fitted, the cpi gasket doesn't have the grooves cut out where the injectors spray the fuel out, this caused the car to idle fine, but it had no go. I have seen one head gasket set with the wrong intake gasket and I nearly fitted it, you don't really take notice cause you normally presume everything is correct in the set..
I might be on the completely wrong track, but I think it sounds mechanical more than anything else...
