Hey guys I have a little problem here. My stang is bone stock, and it always has been hard to start after it is warm. But now its almost impossible to start warm. What I had to do before was floor it and then it would start. Now I floor it, it starts then dies or bogs and blows white and black smoke. It now takes about 5 minutes of the flooding, reving the sh*t out of it, and dropping the clutch to get it moving. If the car is cold, no problem, starts right up.

A strong smell of fuel is present and the wierd thing is after about 10 miles it just vanishes and drives normal. I have noticed on the last couple of runs it now it either hesitates and then goes, or burps and sputters if I try to accel on the road. That too goes away after time.

Since its intermediate, meaning it stops after a while, I am thinking its something like a sensor that is getting dirty or what not. I already cleaned the MAF and AIT sensors. Anyone got anything? At all?

What is a tfi? What is its job? Where could I get one? I ordered new wires, cap and rotor and plugs, and I am still waiting on them to arrive from brothers performance.

Also wyominghotwheel, where did you get the kit from on your twin turbo 92'? Or did you piece it together?
