    stealth wont start after turbo install

    So I finally got my 19t's installed this weekend. Primed the turbos and went to start it after work and it wont roll over, cranks for a second then nothin. It makes a loud clunking sound everytime I go the start it. Sound is coming from the starter area, so I replaced it, still nothing. There is a sensor on the front of the tranny that I broke the clip to but I dont think that is the problem. Battery is fine, has new starter in it, any help would be awesome.

    Are you sure the battery is fine? How are your grounds?

    Yeah it's new. Also I had jumper cables from my other car on it while I was trying to crank it. It started for about 2 seconds earlier then made a wierd grinding sound then died. Now it wont start. I go to start it and it just makes a clicking/clunking sound. I'm completely lost. If I hold the key after the clunk it starts to click like crazy.

    when I crank it, it makes 1 click that's it and the belts dont move at all. safc was reading 12.8 volts when the car was off so the battery is fine.

    The exhaust is off so I'm only running open o2's so the ground strap on the exhaust isn't connected. Could that be the issue? Sounds unlikely.

    13.2 and up is the operating/starting area you want to be when you turn the key. Also, check your ignition.

    Clean the battery terminals and make sure the grounds are on like the one from the plenum to the body.

    Check your connections from your battery to your starter. Check the resistance from the battery terminals, to the terminals on the starter. I had a corroded starter cable (the thick positive cable) and the car wouldn't turn over, and I killed the starter. I could easily bump start the car, but it didn't have enough voltage to turn over by itself.

    Thankfully I was at a 3s meet when it happened, so I got a push start
