Nice Find -

It looks like you have landed a great 928 project as a good starting point. Your purchasing persistence definitely paid off. Initially - just determine whether you are looking at an injector or spark problem before buying a bunch of parts. Perhaps someone could even swap out a few known good components with you for troubleshooting. It is easy to start second guessing yourself on a twin distributor car. I realize you mentioned that you've looked at the cam timing marks but I'd check the compression just to definitely eliminate a potential borderline issue. Don't forget to check all the simple (but time consuming) stuff - like all the computers control signal ground points on the engine and above the fuse panel, verify the flywheel signal, voltage dropping resistors on the inner fender beside the distributors, temp II sensor, power relays to computers, etc.... There are always lots of experienced owner/operators here willing to help.

Keep us posted, Michael
