Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

It depends on the situation causing the flooding. Check spark and timing (yes I see you have already checked timing), check compression, check injector leak down (via a leak down test), I see pressure is 35 but you also want to make sure that holds with key off and or pump not running. You would want to check injector spray patterns as well.

Thank you!
- Joe
