First drive. Not running correctly. Maybe dirty injectors or something. I should probably hook it up to a computer to do some diagnostic. The other thing that I'm thinking is the fuel pressure regulator does not have a vacuum line to intake manifold pressure. I was under the assumption that this system does not need that? It'll be easy enough for me to run a hose and test.

Everything else is great.

I feel a little early posting completed pictures of the finished car. Once the running board trim, and interior is installed it will look much different. Doug will do that shortly I am sure (he had his kids on spring break all week).

I need to get the tuner software so that I can diagnose and change things. I sent an email to cb performance.

What's it doing?

crap out on top end? Check the gap between the crank trigger and the tooth wheel on the Pully.

Spark and fuel, those you Shouldn't have to adjust much if any.. They work or don't.

All set ups I've done use a fuel pressure vacuum regulator, besides the one on my squareback. It's self regulated at 58 psi.

I think there was a vacumm line that hooked up to the cb box under the rear seat.

Super rich. I remember it being that way when we fired it up before taking it all apart.

I have a vacuum line to the ecu, and fuel pressure regulator. Fuel pressure is set at 45 psi at idle.

Mark lawless from CB is going to sync up to our computer next week to tune/see what's going on with this.

Yeah I remember that Franz. It might need the o2 sensor just calibrated. Wideband calibration. Once it's calibrated, then it will know the air fuel ratio. If it's not calibrated then typically they load up.
