Finally running after 5 months but...
The problem: There is no immediate throttle response but once it gets up to 1500 rpms it revs great. All new plugs, all gapped correctly, all 8 firing, can't see anything not hooked up on the top, but if anyone can think of something that may cause the problem I'd be very grateful. I've been dying to have this thing on the road since November.
Back story: bought my 2000 GT back in late November after it had been sitting for 3 years. Got it running, worked out some kinks right away and found out one cylinder wasn't firing. Pulled the engine and got the piston re-ringed, this process taking longer than it should have due to lack of free time. Anyway, it's running as of today.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY AND ALL HELP!!
