did you check your nuts. (yea, i left that one open).

what are your AFR's at idle and cruise? mine at 2800 or so is upper 15's, like 15.7 or 8. thats why i still think i have an air leak. it was 16.7 before i fixed the major intake leak.
Yeah they are a dark shade of blue.....the one that hangs lowest at least.....ha,ha.

At idle I run 13.0 to 1 and at cruise 14.7 to 1. Anything richer at idle and the car reaks and burns my eyes. My issue has never so much been getting the AF ratio correct its a severe miss and terrible throttle response trying to get the car to climb above 3000rpm. It goes away when the weather is hot and gets worse with cold weather. Once the car is fully warmed up it runs great. thats what drives me crazy.
I am hoping the air flow metering plate realignment will solve this nightmare.
