at least once in their life! This I have done. I thought I had messed up my car, and instead, I learned somthing new. Did ya'll know that a VAM car will run without the VAM hooked up, it just runs like it's on it's last leg?? I didn't know this, I didn't think the motor would run if it didn't know how much air was getting to it. I my putting the motor back in my 84, the one thing that I forgot to do was hook up the air meter. It ran, but ran like a pile of crap. I was going through everything today, to see if there was something, just something that I might have messed up, or missed. Low and behold, laying there, under the aircleaner housing, is this black cable, with a wide plug on it, huh, wonder what that goes to, wait a tick, Holy Crap. Plugged it in, and wahlah, it runs like a freakin scalded dog! Still smokes like my grandmother on bingo night, but at least She's running like her old self again. Now if I can figure out this dern smoking problem. I'm beginning to wonder if it is still the turbo. Cause I killed each cylinder for a few minutes, and it was still blowing mad amounts of smoke, also the plugs are all clean and pretty, no signs of oil in the cylinders. Could be the exhaust side seal. Hmmm.

Have you tried removing the Turbo all together???

It would run like crap, but see if its smoking without the turbo connected.
