Be nice! He's obviously frustrated!
Blair - do all 6 injectors at once so you don't dump raw fuel into the other cylinders. Search "corona" and you'll read how to do the injector spray test. It's...
The engine is more volvo than anything else.
that sounds exactly like your spark plug leads are incorrect. If, for example lead 5 and 6 are backwards it will fart and choke like that. So i'd also double check the leads right from...
