Make sure the tdc mark on the pulley is tdc my w10 motor had the seperation it looked good but the tdc mark was like middle of stroke cyl 1 it is very common for our pulleys to shift the timing mark.

well i hate to link to them but this is what i was talking about

my w10 motor had this problem so I reused my JDM de one. Also I had a spare DE one and it had this problem too so 2 out of 3 I had suffered from this. Itll run fine but you cant set ign or mech timing off it obviously

Not for nothing but after seeing this, I would think the motor has had it. Holding Rpms on a motor that has no load is not a good thing. Free revving is one thing.is it the same car?

1) The stock crank pulley is known to seperate (it happened to me - the damn thing flew out from under my 200sx at 60mph!) - therefore that makes it impossible to set the timing or set the motor at TDC unless you eyeball it (general degree of tilt on the distributor, or a screw driver in the spark plug hole to see when its at its highest point)

2) I'm 90 percent sure the DE pulley is the same as the DET

3) You should get a Gspec crank pulley (timing marks are accurate, its 1 piece unlike the stock one, and it frees up a few HP) - either that or pull the valve cover and timing chain tensioner and make sure its at TDC using the screw driver trick and verify cam timing

4) Other than that, with THAT sound, I got nothing
