    04 WRX wont start after a perrin pulley install

    The engine turns over but wont crank up,I think its not sparking but everything seems to be in order.Checked the coilpacks and they all returned positive results,alternator good,brand new battery good,starter good, sensors and ecu good,fuel pump kicks on so WTF am i missing,the car ran when i parked it and after the install will not start up.....Is it a possibility the injectors are clogged? There is a little backfire when trying to crank it up every now and then nothing big though.Any help out there so i can get our vehicle back up? Would the crank pulley be possibly too light causing the rotational mass to throw off the crankshaft sensor?I could be way out there but we trouble shot just about everything and im going nuts cause its my only vehicle to get to work and its been down for about a week because of this.

    Did you try putting the stock crank pulley back on and see if it starts then?
    If so, then there is
    a: either a problem with the Perrin LW crank pulley
    b: a problem with your installation

    If the car does not start with the stock crank pulley back on, then clearly you can eliminate the Perrin crank pulley as the problem.
    Are you getting any CEL's or anything?

    Me thinks the pulley is an unrelated issue, unless you really bungled something during the install.

    it is possible the new pulley is either to light for the engine or is not correctly balanced but goin out on a limb here ill say to light so try putting the old one back on

    The crank pully is not known to cause misfire issues like a lightweight flywheel can.

    It sounds like you unplugged or damaged a plug/sensor during the install. Check your crank sensor.
