    The car should run fine without a tune. Are all your plugs and wires properly installed?

    I agree. Check all the spark plugs and wires first, do a good job on checking those. Every connection.

    all connections are good. found 2 things though. the dipstick tube is touching the metal part of the boot and the EGR line that goes into the intake just behind the TB (on top) sounds like it is leaking. the gasket on that line seems to go in fine but then i let it run a couple of minutes and it start leaking again. plus the dipstick tube keeps popping out!!!!
    all these small problems are adding up to a big headache!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
