OK last nite coming home around the M25 J10 accelerated away in 5th on low boost (10psi) at around 6000rpm it seemed to rev then backfired and will not start.
After investigation this morning, NO fluid leaks, turns over and no noises from engine on turning, compression on all 4 the same, spark on all plugs (changed 3 weeks ago) No pipes blown off.
It run on Seans Turbo Day at 18psi to 10000 with no probs.

Any ideas guys without stripping engine?

Will double check fueling map this afternoon with the laptop!

All the basics seem to be there but it just does not fire, fuel spark compression, I have taken off the inlet pipe so the plenum is open to atmosphere so it should at least cough or something.

Alright,the next things would check, would be the nuetral safety switch and the tilt switch at the back of the tank.

Right checked every plug i can see and tried her but no joy.

Tried starting her with wide open throttle and she fires but only reaches 1000rpm or about the dies will only do this on WOT whilst starting, Me thinks the cam timing has slipped has it has a manual tensioner on her. as It has 8:1 JE pistons i think there is enough room for her to rotate with out hitting the valves. also inlet cam wheel does not exactly line up with the head but it has Holeshot adjustable wheels on her so I will have to wait until I speak to Jack on Tuesday,
