Did the flow test and there was nothing coming from one of the openings (just disconnected the lines on top of the head), and very limited flow from a second one. We tried out a used fuel distributor from a local dismantler and it had the same issue, albeit on different openings. System and control pressures have checked out perfectly (fresh BL WUR so they should!).

I still find it very strange that it seemed mostly fine a few weeks ago when it went in, and somehow completely crapped out while the other work was going on but I guess that's better than having a problem on a trip or at the track. Hopefully this was the cause of the occasional warm start issue I was having, and may also explain the leanness I saw when on the dyno a month or so ago. If it was the cause of these two issues, I guess I should just be happy I didn't hole a piston at some point.

So, thanks to Brian I should have a rebuilt fuel distributor in a few days and be back on the road next week. Then I'll be posting about my driving impressions with the new exhaust.
