Phunnels are huge - you might need 3 coals. Also, put the coals on and a wind cover (if you have one) - let it sit for a couple minutes before taking a pull. If it's bubbling, air is coming down through the bowl and down (unless you have a MASSIVE leak somewhere). Sounds to me like you just need more heat and a little time for it to start cooking.

Did you poke a bunch of holes in the middle of the phunnel?

no i stayed away from the middle. but i got a tip from someone at a hookah bar that i put one hole in the middle with a paper clip to hold up the foil so that it doesnt stop the air flow. and i saw that dude only using one coal!

You may have also got a chinese phunnel, which sadly does not compare to a legit one. When you look inside of it is there a large amount of extra room in the stem of the bowl or isor is it small?

I agree with the above. Also, you may have a leak where the bottom of the bowl goes on top of the stem? Perhaps you need a bigger grommet if that is the issue. If you don't have an extra one laying around, get a a few pieces of a damp paper towel, wrap it around the top of the hookah stem until it is air tight when you put the bowl on it.
