Start at the MAF and work your way in. Any leak after the MAF is going to screw up it runs. When I plugged the intake resonator (giant circular hole in the rubber intake hose), it got loose and cause it to run like crap until I tightened the hose clamp. Check the nipples going to the rubber intake as well. They should all go somewhere. Also that black plastic rectangular cover has a rubber gasket under that looks pretty hammered, unless that's actually sealant around it. My homemade EGR blockoffs should be on the back of the intake manifold. Make sure they're tight and maybe add a gasket to them.

We were recently talking about B-Body wagons in another thread, which made me think about your ride.  Did you ever get it dialed in and running right?

I actually had to sell it, I joined the marine corps and couldn’t store it. It went for sale again for $2800. Not sure if they fixed that or not.

I've decided this is a cursed project car. Probably has something to do with the hearse engine I put in it. Maybe some tormented ghouls went along with the swap?

If you do find it, dump the optispark disaster and LS it and be done ;-)

Update, I cannot for the life of me find this car, and that has me draw two terrible conclusions. The car is sitting in a scrap yard or it's crushed.
