    Good info, thanks. I'm pretty sure I know that tapped up wire is the lone pigtail (shieled ground) off the crank sensor.

    Are you familiar with EMI?

    I'm thinking a fresher unmolested front harness is in your future.

    Curious

    Not sure if you have the time or will but if you do I'd like to speak with you on the phone because I feel much more could be understood in a shorter amount of time so if you are willing my number is 8033614503 my name is Chris. If not it's more than understandable

    Chris - happy to discuss over the phone, I'm on the West Coast/Oregon, and won't have time until Friday or Sat. evening, say 7 pm my time, or Sunday after 10 am. Let me know what works for you.

    Sunday would probably be the best considering the time zones if that is OK with you?

    So took the car out again to grab some chicken wings 2.1 miles from home ran normal on the way there on the way back I gassed it a bit to see how it was running took off great let off the gas came to a stop made a left and it started severely bucking hard while using about 1500 rpm of throttle pulled into a parking lot as to not let it continue to buck noticed I had no tach whatsoever shut the car off waited about 1 or 2 minutes tried starting the car got a very awkward lobe with no start almost like a bad battery/starter when it tries to fire got a pop back through the exhaust not really a backfire but certainly an audible sound and no start let it sit 10 more minutes and it started no tach and was able to get it home half way home tach started working... Any clues or suggestions?

    Normally means cam sensor and/or harness/wiring/connector issues.

    Have you tried starting and driving around with the cam sensor unplugged?

    Any codes right after?
