First time ever cam'ing a car. Was a good learning experience.
Gotta thank Runtz for all the help.

Cam is a custom grind from FMS, still needs a tune big time. Car won't idle at all. Needs a big foot on the gas around 1200rpm to keep it going.
Runs well though, just need to put some miles on the new converter it and take it to FAST for some tuning

Didn't watch the vid yet, but you'll need to open your TB a bit to get it to idle well. Do you have a scanner? If so, find a torx or hex bit that'll fit the throttle stop screw on the TB. Key on the car, but do not start it. Open your scanner and watch TPS values. Turn the set screw until the TPS reads 2%. Key off. Unplug BOTH the TPS and the IAC. Key on for a few seconds, then key off again. Plug in both the sensors. Start the car, see if it idles OK. If not, repeat. I had to do this 2x to get mine to idle with the new cam.

Good luck!

Going to watch your video now. :D

I don't have a scanner. Just a little handheld. Any idea about how far of a turn 2% is? If I have an idea I can just keep doing it a bit at a time even if it takes more time.
