So the new engine has been installed in my S and everything is running smoothly, well almost. This problem usually happens when I'm in first gear and hit 4000 rpm. It feels like I'm hitting the rev limiter and the engine cuts out, and is very intermittent in other gears besides first. It happens sometimes in second gear, but not as frequently as in first. I checked the intake hose today and there were no cracks in it. Any ideas as to how I can solve this?

Thanks for any help,
Mike

Thanks for all the replies!

The tach is in sync and works fine. Also I didn't change any of the fuel delivery components during the swap, but I have plenty of other parts to mess around with if neccesary. I might try a new cap as the one on there is in OK condition. Also forgot to mention that the car "sputs" and wants to stall out when second gear in lower rpms. It never used to do this before. Happened to me tonight as I was turning onto my street, but the engine totally shut off. The car still starts, but as soon as I hit the gas pedal, the engine stalls. But its pretty late now and I'm lucky that the car made it home. I will take a look at it in the morning.
