After removing the nut I removed the engine smoothly but repositioning the new was a pita at that point that after lot of try I decided to remove the transmission and bolt them together on the ground , was way more easy but still wasn't really quick

Put the engine and transmission back in place and it went super great , 30 minute and engine was at is place bolted to every support .

After plugging everything I tried and everything worked perfectly
Yay

Gota put drive shaft back tomorrow and hit the road to see how it handle

Well i drive really well exept at idle, it run rough and shake and there a lot of popping in exhaust , sometime get misfire on cylinder
As soon as I give it some gas everything go well and misfire disappear , and as soon as I get to a red light misfire will come back after around 10-15 second
Could be firing timing ?
Spark plug was switched from cylinder and work well , coil is fine
I will probably get it to a mechanic to see what they find

yep, stuff doesnt like to sit. the icm and coil terminals are likely corroded, plug wires break down over time, plugs. you will have to start there, let us know what happens

Compression is fine i got 150 on every cylinder
Plug, wire , coil are fine ..
Maybe the injector ?
I only worked on carb motor ( my bikes ) so I don't really know how this thing works
