last night i threw my turbo kit on, and well it idled well and work pretty good tell igot about 1/3 of the way home (2 miles or so) and my car died. the tach just dropped to zero. this has happened at one instance a few days prior to going turbo. that day i was climing a slushy hill, and had al 4 spinning. at that moment eh car would die. now when it dies, if i get kick it forward to start it the starter will engage and spin. but nothign will happen (ie starter going nuts, and no starting) if i returnt eh key to the very first position and try starting it, it wil start, but then it will die just like before. if i wait long enough, when i try and start it, it will run.
this problem only seems to occur at low speeds, it happened 2x at a stop, and 1x going 20 mph.
any ideas? advice tips? the car does have a CEL on, but it normally does. tomorow i am gonna scan it for further clues, since its 545 am. a few things that i think may be wrong with it:
Wiring fault on Piggyback (especially ignition part)
poor airflow to intake sensors
rear o2 sensor (plug maybe connected wrong)
got some new info! CEL is for the crankshaft positioning sensor, circuit malfuntion. there was also a code for the front 02 sensor which is the one i replaced with the wideband, but i did not correctly calibrate the sensor so i think that will fix that problem.
so i am wondering what up with the Crank sensor. did my sensor just take a flop? a loose conection? or perhaps something is the issue with the wiring i did to control timing with the PP6, since i needed to route the crank sensor signal through it inorder to alter the timing.
