I don't know any personally.

At one point I disconnected ALL vacuum hoses and ONLY had the intake hooked up. I blocked ALL of them completely off. No brake booster, no EVAP, no PCV, No nothing. Just the intake going into the Maggie and that's it.

Still had the miss.

None that I remember. There is no way the car will notice the brake booster and PCV because there is little to no flow while it sits. PCV is emissions. You can litteraly unhook it and let the crank case vent to the ground if you wanted.

And if the EVAP isn't open for canister release then it wouldn't notice that either because there is no flow then either.

At least all in theory.

Yeah that makes sense, but still seems weird. I've for a feeling that your tune has turned off all sorts of things that should be active.

Got my smoke tester built tonight, but wifey is sick, so I'll post video, build thread tomorrow. And hopefully find my leak.

Luckily I've learned so much about fule trim that I will be able to tell right away if its fixed or not. Maybe I'm not stuck on carbuerators.

then again... for a guy who has to have his car shift for him, 7 forward gears might be a little much to handle - let alone 8!

You got it brother.

Glad to see you two are coming along together.

Tell her to get well. Sounds like a really bad flu. :(

right now, they're saying a bad stomach virus combined with the nauseating & headache-causing effects of an antibiotic for another infection she got, which caused her to get really dehydrated on top of all that.

but thanks to y'all both!

Holy cow! I hope she gets better real soon! I can handle a cold but the flu usually kicks my azz! The nausea and headache are the worst! You better not inhale near her!

Hey PQ,

I didn't do any video of my smoke tester, cause it didn't really work LOL. It could work fine, with some adjustments.

But I did find my leak, hose was forgotten. So blind looking for little leaks, missed the most obvious one!

But the biggest lesson was about fuel trim an how it is affected by vacuum leaks. I am convinced you have one, and should monitor your fuel trim to help diagnose. That's how I was able to narrow mine down.

Time to have my tune adjusted now.

Lemme know if you need any tips. I am going to work on my smoke tester again to see if I can make it work.
