    39psi is stock FP (vac. line un-hooked at idle). If your running a charger dont you have an FMU or Tune/tuner. The stock FPR will not handle boost by itself unless the eec has been given the correct fuel changes to make up for it, and even then I think you may need a adj. FPR. (I am not a boosted guy so I dont know what is needed but stock stuff prob. is not ideal)

    Not sure what you shouldbe running, but stock fuel pressure is 30psi at idle, and 38-40 under load (or with the vacuum line off). I really can't even guess what fuel pressure you need though. :shrug: I'm not familiar with S/C setups.

    the car has been tuned, by lidio at alternative auto performance up by detroit MI but that was done almost a year ago.....
    i have a A/F ratio gauge and it has NEVER been in the ideal range....ALWAYS lean :shrug: i know its not accurate but you would think the gauge would go in to the ideal range under some load or at least at SOME point....

    If its the autometer A/F guage then its preaty much useless. They are not accurate at all and more of a light show.

    If it hangs lower than the Crossmember, then yes, this is a concern.....

    First I would remove that ratchet from the battery in case it gets moved and grounds itself out. I would dilute some simple green then with a parts brush clean up the grime. *note* if you do hose it down cover the h pipe inlets so h2o doesn't contaminate/ruin the o2 sensors and your msd**

    oh i dont think it would take that incredibly long... in order to hide the wires, is there cutting and splicing involved? or are alot of them long enough to re-route?
