So the latest is..all the basics check out...compression..crank/cam sync...timing..spark..fuel. but I cant get the car to run, it has run for a few seconds a few times. fuel pressure is good, now what is weird is the last time I tried it ( yesterday )...I turned it over 4 or 5 times and it acted like it wanted to start..but didn't. then I stopped for 3 or 4 minutes...Looking at the fuel enrichment in the tune, then tried it..it fires up and ran for 5 seconds,,,ran good, then died. I am running a Holley EFI stand alone.It almost sound like my fuel delivery is off somewhere...but I am guessing...any Ideas or thoughts are appreciated. thanks.

Sounds like the “performance” shop is maaaayyyyybeeee no to good?
Its a holley, every LS shop on the planet should be able to sort that out.

Hold the pedal to the floor while you crank a few times, then let off while still cranking. See what it does.

If timing was off, it shouldnt be starting.

So ...the no start issue was the fuel pump was priming and showed good pressure on the gauge, but was not powered after cranking. corrected that and she is running. just sorting out a few small things , I will let everyone know once I put some miles on her ...then dyno.
