Default problems with turbo/engine/anything else

last night i got my car from the paint shop, then drove it home. went into town and got gas and then went 2 miles to wal mart. went to wal mart and then when i came out my car wouldnt start. we changed the plugs out cause those looked fried and then it started and choked itself out. we unhooked the clips from the injectors and it would start up fine and then die out (there was so much gas in there that it started without the injectors). well then we put the clips back on and then it turned over and there was this ticking sound from the top of the car. not from the engine. so we undid the clips and then we started it up, there was no tick after this. put the clips back on, then ticking came back. i tried to drive it but couldnt get over 20 mph, so i called my step dad and he trailered me back. anyone know what could cause this?

it doesnt sound like a knocking, its a ticking. also when i take the clips off of the injectors and start up the car it starts up and there is no ticking. it sounds like the injectors are opening all the way up and are ticking like hell. i am also throwing a solid cel, we tried a known good ecu and it still threw the cel code.

Well if it is comming from the injectors then maybe it is just a bad injector? did you buy them new or used?

when i turbo'd my si.. i had a dead injector... and i did some research on what it would sounds like..

and it would either not open at all or flood the cylinders. the same kinda thing that would happen if you needed a resistor box

He's running DSM 450's and a resistor box. I've already sent Tyler one of my 450's, as one of his was dead. It wouldn't suprise me if the box is ****ed too
