Check your timing and firing order. ( basic, I know, but it doesn't hurt to recheck, even if you think its right)

I feel like a jacka$$ I had the distributor on the wrong way. It was 180 out. Fliped it around and it fired right up, sounds nice and loud without the exhaust system on. Thanks for though advice. ::
