its a different engine. what did you get it from? what of the new engine did you swap over? you know if the fuel specs are the same? you know your fuel pump is good?

So the car will sit and idle but if you press the throttle it just stumbles? dies? trys to die? Justin may be onto something cause if you used a newer engine harness th pins may not all line up with the "cars" harness in the proper order..have you tested the fuel pressure on the car and verified it to match your engine..also may want to look into ingintion system..but it all depends on what the car actually does
