    Lars, yeah went to TAD....not going there again...unless I pick up a set of DR's or slicks....just can't get traction, and it's not worth smoking a set of perfectly good radials.

    Basically, 94-95 spindles, used some washer's for the lower ball joint (to compensate for the cotterpin) picked up a adapter for the passenger side brake line from LRS, brake caliper's from a Mach I (if I remember correctly) you might want to prepare yourself for a garage alignment, in order to get you down to a shop to have a real one done. Other than that, new pads shoes.....bled the brakes....been working great :)

    I kept all the stock stuff (master, booster, etc etc) and yeah it does stop better. going from 4 lug baby stuff, to 10.8 size rotors do help :)

    After the H/C/I my lil coupe is running STUPID rich...If I fire it up in the morning, go get my coffee and come back outside, it's like walking into a wall of fumes. I have an adjustable fuel pressure regulator on order, should be here next week some time. Anyway that won't do me any good if I don't have one of these. As expected 44 psi (vacuum off) So running fat....
    Kit from LRS

    Where it get's installed. This kit doesn't require you to remove the actual schrader valve out of the housing. The blue adapter has a nipple that actuates the schrader valve once you
    screw it on:

    About ready to install. had to put teflon tape on the gauge threads. BTW, in the instructions it tells you at least 3 times not to over-tighten the gauge or the fittings.

    Installed. Sorry crappy camera phone :p

    Hopefully have it dialed in a bit more, get it back down to 39 psi where it supposed to be. Been going through fuel like crazy.

    That's a nifty gauge setup. Wish I knew something like that existed when I had my stock rails.

    Do you have a wideband A/F sensor/gauge? I wouldn't go attempting to lean the car out unless you know for sure what your A/F is.

    No I don't have one. However, I don't think it would hurt to set it to at least the factory 39 psi? I was under the impression, with the installation of the cam = less vacuum, which in turn creates a rich condition?

    The fuel pressure regulator's job is to maintain a constant pressure difference across the injector. If manifold pressure goes up, fuel rail pressure increases to match it. It does this because it is the difference in pressure that determines the fuel flow, and by maintaing a constant gap between manifold pressure and rail pressure, you know that your fuel flow rate is constant. If fuel flow is constant, then all you need to fully control A/F is injector pulse width.

    So what I'm getting at is that your fuel flow rate likely hasn't changed. It is possible that the computer has opened up pulse width to compensate for your mods, and toying with fuel pressure to correct AF at idle may hose you at WOT. So I would recommend a wideband to make sure you know what is going on everywhere.

    Triple post fail AND when I tried to make a post making fun of myself, it wouldn't let me post. So I gave up.
