still having the non starting up problem. just wondering. could the vacuum line be the problem for the car not starting. I had to make 2 new tees in it. maybe the line isn't tight enough around the tee and causing the car to not start??? I checked the wires and they all seem ok. battery is fine. the only explanation I can think of is the vacuum line.

I'm not 100% sure. I was about to suggest one way, but I wouldn't do it...could damage the car, and/or cause a fire... Anyone?

Is this a Hot starting problem or a Cold starting problem?

check for spark by pulling your spark plugs and grounding them while cranking the car....

me and my friend installed a drag turbo on his prelude.that was a custom job....so i know what im talking about when it comes to turbo install...did u check your fuel system...is it upgraded?stock?are you getting proper fuel delivery?if your car is not receiiving fuel it will not start up.take off your distributor cap and test to make sure your firing with all 4 plugs.

Check your emanage wiring. Make sure something has not come loose, it happens! Double check all your hoses clamps and vaccume lines.
