it starts fine. then after about 20 seconds as it idles down It starts to sound as if its running out of gas. if I shut it off and restart it's fine from there on out. at first I thought fuel pump. but i thoroughly cleaned the tank with new pump and sender unit as well as fuel filter when I completed the swap job a year and a half ago . everything is bone stock including the exhaust mans. it's connected to a getrag 5spd. other than that seems to run good although it idle is somewhat unsteady. it changes 50 rpm and has a slight "thawking: sound when it warms up. I guess a miss. nothing shows up when I do a scan. excuse me in advance if I don't reply right away, with work and all. tom
