Default Help! Swap problem...motor smoking,etc.

I recently ordered a b16a from HMO and had it put in my cx just a couple days ago. The motor looks very clean and no broken sensors, but all 4 injectors were bad so i'm having to run the stock cx injectors with like 130k miles for a week or so. I'm also waiting on exhaust (just ran the stock cx exhaust to get it home...was choking it to death). It seemed okay on the way home...kinda hard to tell with the exhaust situation though. So its sitting in my garage til like wednesday when the exhaust gets here, but i start it up like once a day just to see how its doing.


The problem: When i drove the car home i noticed that it was just reeking of fuel. Also..when i start the car it bounces from about 2.5k to .3k and then settles around 1.3 or so. And worst of all tonite when i started it and just let it idle it was smoking pretty bad. All white smoke for like a min and then it started shooting out with appeared to be fuel... i'm assuming this because of the smell. Its throwing no codes, so i dont know what the hell is wrong. Any ideas?

cx injectors flow 180 instead of 240 I would take them out before you blow that motor.

But it seems like the car is running rich which is the opposite of what you're saying. Its reeking of fuel and shooting some out of the exhaust. I haven't taken the car over 3k so if the injectors are that serious of a problem then hopefully i didn't mess anything up.

how's the temp reading?

do a compression test.

if you just installed it, i would let it run for awhile. who knows how long that motor has been sitting there.

get those injectors out of there.

open up that p30 and see if it's not chipped. This is strange.
