Default Ok....what's next?!

Ok guys,
So I finally took out the turbo setup and, "I think", blocked off everything that needed to block off but, my car is not starting.
I would turn her over but she wouldn't start. Seems as though there is a fuel delivery problem now.
I checked to make sure that the fuel pump was working and it is, sooooooo,
what can possibly be the matter?
I took out the FMU and connected the fuel line to the OEM Pressure regulator and i hooked the little vacuum hose from the OEM PR to the IM.
Steer me in the right direction OH WISE ONES

OH and the engine tilt is gone. I put in the new transmission bracket in and also I found out that a lower mount also needs to change.
Next on the agenda is the CV Joint boots.
I already bought those so I just have to install em.

Update 06-02-2009

what's the matter....i guess there are no wise ones here then?!

Okay, found that it is the fuel pump giving the problem.
Where I removed the turbo setup, the fuel pump, which is a walbro 255 lhp, must be giving to much fuel and causing the car to not start. Must be flooding it, IDK.
So I'm getting a stock pump to see how that goes.

Also I had to take out the starter to have that rebuilt.

Update 06-05-2009

Okay, guys and gals, here's where I'm at now.
Installed the new fuel pump and starter.
Started her up and she was bogging when I hit the gas.
Did some searching and stumbled upon the IAC Valve.
Took that off and cleaned it up with some carb spray.
After the cleanup, I started her up but below 2000 rpm she stalls out.
I did a few donuts in my backyard.......was the first time i really got to feel it out since I got the car a month ago......
Dayam for a lil buggy that sucker has some power and the exhaust sounds like sex nice deep tone.
I can't wait to get this thing figured out.
So I am making some headway.
I am going to pull down the Throttle Body tomorrow and clean that up and check for any air leaks from vacuum hoses.
I gatta get a new air filter and fuel filter too.
If anyone has any input as to anything I may need to check while I'm at it.....pleeeeeeeeeaaaaaasssseeeeee tell me.
I really don't wanna get a new IACV cuz them dam things sooooo expensive. By the time I get it landed here it would run about $400.00
Help me out please.

Sorry, no idea. Hope its not something as bad as a bent valve. Did you check your injectors?

Okay question, would the iacv cause the car to run bad or not start?
Yesterday, I got my battery charged and went at it again. First go, she started, ran for about 1/2 a minute and then died. started her again and she ran for about a minute, I started to rev her and she felt like she was going to cut out so I let up of the rev. When I went to rev again she shut off. Okay, third times a charm. Started her, let her run. She ran and then she started surging up, down, up. down. Took of the sensor from the IACV and she leveled off. I revved her up and she kept up her idle. I jumped in and drove her around the yard for a few minutes......yeah my yard is that big. She didn't shut off. I jumped out and as soon as I plugged the sensor in......she started surging and then she shut off. So for right now the likely culprit is the IACV.

Good job narrowing it down. Hope you can replace it cheap!

i was thinking while i'm at it I would change the TPS and MAP sensor.
While researching MAP sensor I realized that I have a "Valve Check Link" in between the MAP sensor and TB. Could this also be causing a problem since I have taken out the Turbo setup?

Are you talking about the missing link? You have any pics by chance?

Yeah, actually, I am talkin bout the missing link.
In taking out the turbo setup, as I was going over the IM I looked at it and said......hmmm I never saw one of these under a MAP sensor. I thought about removing it but I said what the hell....it shouldn't cause that big of a deal. So I left it in.

I wouldn't mess with the TPS as it needs to be aligned by a machine (However, I am not sure exactly how this is done). For the missing link under the MAP sensor, you should be able to just remove it and be fine. If anyone else has a comment on this, post it up!
