Sorry guys for the holdup but my daily driven car decided to give me all the problems it could have given me in one week but all well now. Two days ago I was going to check the car and then it didn't start! After several cursing there was 0 psi and ended up being just a relay, so I was now back to start but dies issue. I grabbed an allen wrench and turned the screw on the fuel head and didn't see a change. I was brave enough to keep on turning and about after 4 1/2 clockwise turns it was idling by itself. So it's back up and running.

If your talking about the idle CO screw you need to push it down while turning and it only needs very small increments for big changes so I think you did not push it down enough if you made that big changes?

Actually when I was turning the pin I made sure it was turning the screw. It feels very different when your turning the screw and when you aren't. Now it's just setting the idle but at least it stays on now which is great tahnks to all the people that help me out. I reAlly appreciate it. I haven't driven this car in a year.

4 1/2 turns is a lot. It must have been WAY off.

The dyno run will get it dialed in and it will be interesting to see how it works out.

That is an understatement for sure. 4 1/2 turns is a full bucket of crap load. Man, whoever your AC shop was, they should be shot for messing with stuff they know nothing about. They probably thought that screw was for adjusting the idle. Jeeze!
Let's hope that's all it was. Now, either dyno it or find someone that can test your CO% out the tailpipe to get her dialed in to around 2.5-3%. You're not done yet, but almost there.
