all wire are hooked up and no start sound like late timming on the valves or something as it sounds like it is going by the exhaust valves so i will check the cam timing by putting one of the cam locks on and see if it is on tdc like it should be but that wont be for a few day so i am done for now

Oh yeah, I didn't miss that.

Mark, I get a kick out of how you pronounce "door". It somehow develops a second syllable, something like "dough-ah". Is this a Boston accent?

I find the swaps intriguing. I'm a stock guy myself since I got my first Fiero (new in May '84 - SE 4 speed still in daily use), but I did one exotic swap.
Took the rattling 2.5L out of my '86 and swapped in.... wait for it.... an '87 2.5L
I've always thought that if I ever had a 'hot rod', I'd like the wheelie bars to engage the pavement when I put the hammer down.
Congrats on clearing the latest big hurdle; I wish you success completing the project!
