    starting issues with my bugeye! cranks over then die's i need help

    ok heres whats up. i bought a 2002 wrx that was wrecked. I fixed the damage, and now it will not start. it has fuel+spark. but when you try to start it. all it does is crank then die. what is the problem?

    it leaks fuel a little just squirts out on top of the injectors. but had a utec i was told to remove. so i did and plugged the stock ecu in normal.

    well let me know im not a suby guy at all

    So you checked 2 possibilities, check some more. How about timing and compression?

    well i havent checked timing, compression. the car was the kid's daily driver he wrecked it racing so it ran. so would timing jump like that? and compression it just wouldnt start right? and have you seen where the spark plugs are in these cars lol.

    Yes.

    I'm not there, you are.

    There was enough damage to cause fuel to leak out of the injector rail? Gotta start with the basics. Sudden stops can cause timing jumps, i've seen it. Are you sure fuel pressure is at spec?
