Fuel pressure whether under boost or not will tell you the overall health of you fuel system...

It's always a good idea for a boosted car... If you hammer it and the fuel pressure doesn't stay right at 60 psi, you need to get out of it and determine why...

well you mentioned it still trying to die at idle especially when the cutouts are open. you can check that under the hood & should at least tell you if it's a pressure problem or possibly an A:F thing from the O2s (which from what i understand, the rears only check to make sure the cats work; the fronts control A:F)

I'd be surprised if it were a problem but I'll check. Can't really get any boost unless I have load so I'd have to drive it or dyno it. Might just need to datalog it.

Last time it was a header leak. I'll have to check it out real good.

I'll take iced anything... Knuckleheads down here don't put any drinks in the fridge, and make it dang near impossible to get ice...

They leave the doors to the living quarters open all the time, and so it gets hot and humid inside... so, there is really no where to get away from the heat...

Sorry, just tired... and HOT..

I just mowed my lawn myself for the first time in almost 10 years. Pushed it. I can feel every one of those 10 years right now.

The AC quit so I had to clean the coil inside. Taking forever to cool the house down right now.

Not sure why I just typed all that. I'm glad I'm not where you are I guess. hahaha

Thank You... It allows me to not feel alone in the heat...
