Welcome mate. Sounds like you're well on your way to getting on the road. There's not much that these guys don't know and should get you closer to finishing your project.

Mik.

Hi Burt
I live in Donny, but work in Barnsley. I can give you advice on BOA wiring if you get stuck, as i wired the BOA into our Cobra replica.
Where abouts in Barnsley are you?
Cheers
Kevin

Hi Kevin, At the moment i'm living with a mate in elsecar but otherwise i live in maltby.
     I have tried wiring it up twice, the first time i could get a spark but no fuel from the injectors and the second time it reversed its self, i could get fuel but no spark.
     I have got most things wired up and ready, its just the spark and fuel problem i need to sort out

Hi Burt
The Power Splice is the battery +ve that that is distributed to all the high power circuits in the engine bay. The power splice is not live all the time and only becomes live when the ECU tells relays 10 and 12 to 'turn on'. When the car is 'ready to run' all the power slices should be 12v (effectively connected to each other then to the battery via the relays).
I would start checking your earths to make sure you have enough of them and they are all joined together. Sounds like an intermittant problem you have there.
Cheers
Kevin
