helppppppp

guys just finished doing the setup on the wagon and everything checks out fine, my system consists of twin pick ups from the tank, twin lock offs, twin 8mm flexy lines, twin lock offs on the converters, twin b2 converters into a 440gra t/b now my problem is it takes ages to fire up like i can continue cranking for 15-20 secconds befor it fires up...once running it idols around 1000rpm, with the ecu i have it locked at 10deg (haltech) it has a standard vlt ignition tune in it to get it all running and problems sorted....any one with some ideas would be fantastic.......
ive even tried pushing the plungers to put more gas in it when cranking and it still doesnt help.....

any ideas would be good ill try anything

if your line to the throttle body from the converters is too long it can take a while for the vacuum of the engine to draw the gas into the carb. You could get an elec primer on the converter and run a line to the CTI port of the TB.

What if you flick the ignition on and off 4-5 times before cranking... does it start any faster?
