Recently I have swapped a newer rb26 from an r33 gtr into my r32 gtr after my last motor scorched the cylinder walls tremendously. I have done countless hours of research at work and at home trying to resolve the reason for why my motor doesn't want to stay at idle. It feels like it is trying to "suffocate" itself from air. It is getting desired fuel pressure, and it is getting spark, timing is in specification, and all of my electrical connections are good.
What I have done so far:
Performed countless smoke tests resolving vacuum issues which led me to the following-
Nitto Intake gasket set from the head to the manifold
Replaced misc vacuum lines that were leaking
Resolved my wastegates being stuck closed
But for now, the car sounds like it just is not getting any air at all! I have been chasing down this issue for about 2 months now and I have retraced all of my steps while reading this forum and sau. Has anyone had a similar issue, or can give me any ideas of what could possibly be causing this problem?
Thanks in advance!
