The problem I have is it won't start when cold. You have to crank it about 15-20 times to get it to fire. The first 1-10 times it will just crank after that it tries to fire but sounds like its flooded,sputters and dies. Once it starts its fine, you can shut it off and it starts right back up and idles fine. It will sit and idle fine but once it gets to opperating temp and the thermostat opens it wont idle or run. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks for the help

Well, that's not it (which you've figured out).

Perhaps the fuel pump is losing prime.

After you've cranked it 4 or 5 times (without it starting) are the plugs wet or smell like gas?

If so I suspect the TFI module. Is it the donor one?

I'm sorry i should have given more info. The engine ran fine in the donor car, did my own wire diet, i'm thinking it is some where in the wiring.
