Ouch.. a redneck alignment. You are correct.. you can't get anything done correctly in your area. YOU NEED TO MOVE somewhere else. maybe you can stay in TX with PETE for a while.. LOL

PQ.. hit up Bruce at Raymonds performance to give you a "proper" Pedders alignment while we are at the fest. You need the "holy shit - this thing handles unbelievable!!" alignment done to your car...

First PQ is going to get 'aligned' with his Camaro. Then he is going to get his Camaro aligned...

Hooked the gauge up too.

Just temporary so I can hold it and look at the boost level as I try the pulley. Main reason is to make sure my new pulley and tensioner don't priduce too much boost.

Nope. No help at all.

I think that little thing was simply to read boost and tell the BAP to turn on. So it couldn't really cause stalling. Just low fuel pressure at boost.

I don't know what my stalling is.

I suspect it's O2 related because the stalling is WAY worse with my diverters open and the diverters are right behind the rear O2s

I don't think the hose was kinked enough. I blew into it straight and bent and wasn't really a noticeable diff.

We are so glad you are with Bonnie, 'cause with a statement like that...we'd have to talk.

So is it running any better ?

Not running better. But the boost gauge works.

The airplane connectors go in tomorrow.

have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge just to be sure? there's gotta be a shop close that'll let you slap one on for a minute




just throwing out ideas here

I have a fuel pressure gauge here. But what am I checking for? If it's not under boost the BAP won't be on anyway.

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.
