    Get a cheap "$11.99" chilton book on your car and it will give you firing order and timing specks. did you tune up include a new feul filter? disconnect the fuel line coming up from the tank. 5/16" hard line and have someone turn on the key. check if it kicks on to pressure up. if it does great.. if not replace your pump. it is fuel injected so you will not be able to see the gas squirt like a carberated car. at idle it will barley trickle. first check your fuel lines tho this will give you a good place to start.. either way right now its either not getting enough gas or none at all.
    Good Luck.

    It might look like a carb on the engine but it's actually a computer (ecm) controlled fuel injection throttle body.
    Even the longest journey begins with the first step.

    alright thanks next time i go out to my grandparents house ill try the timing and the firing order ;D i hope it works :-D because i really like fieros once i get both of my fieros running right i am going to throw a bigger engine in one of them and i was wondering what would be my best choice and would i need to re enforce every thing in it or what? and what about the wiring to the engine will i just need to start from scrach for all the wiring? or is their special wiring kits i can buy to do that? i was thinking of a 350 chevy but!!!! i live in california and we got those damned smog laws haha or a lil honda engine since the 2.5 engine stock pushs 92 horse and a honda engine is pushing about 150 or better ........what is the best way to go????
