I've got fire at the plugs , fuel is at 38-40 psi, the timing is right, plugs are gapped at .052, and i have 51 psi oil pressure. one weird thing that no one can figur out is one no. 1,2,3 injectors with a noid light as you crank the engine the light starts out bright and gets dimmer as you go until its out completely. did a code search and i have 85,11 thats it .

Definitely sounds like something with the electrical system. I'm assuming nothing else was changed during the engine install. If so then its more than likely a pinched wire or loose plug somewhere.
