Hello, and have you verified ignition wire routing and order at the coil? Not a set of crossed wires? Since it uses two ignition coils with the dual spark plug system I have seen this cause it to hiccup but start too. does the vehicle run at all? All other grounds are good since its a new engine,hooked up properly?
