As long as you got the engine you strait. That looked like no more than $1000 if you don’t do the installs yourself

Any time I spin an engine to check for spark or compression or something else when I know it won't start or don't want it to start, its best to remove all the spark plugs. Its a lot easier on the starter and the battery and it'll make the compression test a bit quicker because the engine will spin faster. Even more so in diesel engines with ~ double the compression of gas engines, I remove all the glow plugs.

With the rb25s, timing can also be a tricky thing. They jump time when you're doing them up if you're not careful.

One thing I learned from Chrisfix is that you need timeing. If the spark tries to ignite while its exhaust for example it wont start. So check if the timing of everything as well

You talk too much and do a lot of beating around the bush for no reason. Fuel was #2 but you said it was last then you check everything on the fuel but the fuel pump or filter. Like that’s not the most obvious thing im jus saying makes me feel like you knew exactly what was wrong with this car.

You left out exhaust. Air, fuel, spark, compression, exhaust. If your exhaust is blocked it won’t start. I remember my friend told me a story about how he stuffed a tennis ball into his dads exhaust when he was little and his dad took it to the shop and they cut the exhaust open and found the tennis ball wedged in.

Car: "Won't start" Me: "Takes it to a mechanic" The mechanic: "Oh easy all you have is a blow head gasket, everything leak, bad spark plugs, bad fuel injectors, fuel tank is melted, fuel pump broke, and . . . . . " Me:--_-- -The mechanic still talking about what "Wrong".

8 out of 10 times for me with a car that wont start its a fuel problem. Best way to test for me is to dump a little start fluid on the throttle or intake and if it starts then dies out. I knw its not getting fuel.

Ok so someone help me out here. Everybody says you need to touch the plugs to metal(ground) when testing if they have spark. Plugs are designed to arc by themselves. I've watched my dirt bike's plug spark by itself without touching metal, so I think this is something people have been told for so long they just accept it

If you did a new fuel system, why did end up having to fix the fuel system, and it looked pretty old? Not trying to bust your balls too much. Don’t bullshit a bullshitter.
