Carbureted LSX forum - Signs of a bad 6010?
08-19-2012, 04:05 PM
I have the msd box in my ls swapped fox and when I first got it running it ran perfect then all of a sudden it started popping and back firing through the carb. Now when I try to start it is doing that as well. Ive put new cam and crank sensors in, checked the grounds, have a good pos power right to the box and tried a buddies set of coil packs with no luck. Does this sound like a bad box to you or am I going crazy?

Wonder if the reluctor wheel has messed up somehow. Do you have a callies crank? Did you build the engine with a different crank? Also some boxes had to have wires flipped on the cam sensor, I believe.

My 6012 was doing that. I went through all the trouble shooting stuff, and in the end I took the front cover off and found my cam was 1 tooth advanced. I am 99% positive I installed it correctly...... The engine ran perfect for about 2 months before a hard backfire, afterwards it was hard starting, and prone to backfiring upon startup. I feel stupid if I installed my cam 1 tooth out, but I really think that happened with the hard backfire.....
I put a new cam in the engine and made SURE it was installed at the correct ICL, and so far it starts excellent. - Same MSD box.
Might not be your problem, but worth a look.

Have you checked to see if your getting spark? check for spark and take a look at the plugs. Could possibly fouled your plugs and flooded the engine.

It was the plugs, I put a new set in a few passes ago and I must have had one foul or just be bad, put all new in and it fired right up, pretty bad when the simplest things get you stumped!

Good news, take the easy ones when they come!
