For those of you that have been keeping up with my car troubles, I finally solved my problem. I feel so dumb, but here goes. The O-ring on fuel injector 4 was not fitted properly. You can see in the pic how it was all crooked. I guess after I had put it in, I was paying all my attention to the adjacent injector that I missed it when it moved around.

The O-ring was blocking the injector from spraying properly. If my finger is the injector, the O-ring was sitting on it as in the pic below.

So after I fixed that, my car was still knocking. I switched out my intake for the stock air box and it's working perfectly now :)

So, does this mean that I can still use my Blitz SUS if I get my car tuned to the amount of air it draws in? I would imagine I could. Anyways, thanks for everyone's help in my time of despare. You guys are the best :)

Yeah, I still wanna get the Turbo XS FMIC, but I've been spending way too much money on going out/birthdays/and fun stuff. I always have a hard time saving money around this time of year. There's just so much going on :D

So I probably won't get it until end of December or maybe January. Eh, I'm happy with my car for now.

Good to see you got it sorted out. Bad to see you can't install injectors:p

J/k bro. Look forward to riding with you this week.

I could have sworn the problem with your car was the nut behind the wheel. :-/
Hahaha...indeed it was :D I was really frustrated when I found out it was my error that caused my problems. I'm generally meticulous about all my work, and this experience was a little disheartening. Oh well, you live and you learn :)

Actually, this sort of thing can happen real easily. The part is so small and in such a tight spot that you wouldn't notice it.
