    Thread: Mk1 ABA Swap, Starts then dies

      Hey! So I've been having some problems with my swap. I'm swapping it into my mk1. Everything is hooked up. I can get it to start for about 5 seconds, revs up to about 500rpm then dies. Even If I keep throttle on it. I've replaced my stock fuel pump. I've done timing multiple times, bypassed the fuse relay. Everything is at TDC. I have no idea what to look at.

      I'am throwing the code p0341.

      I've bought a new distributor and it does not have a mark for the rotor. I've lined up the window to the hall sensor. Could that be the issue?
