sweet thanks mane...

UPDATE..


Ive checked for the past two days for any vacuum leaks and I cannot find any. Ive been appreciating this 70 degree weather to try and figure this car out.

So i was suspecting tune, and I pulled the diablo chip out... and the car was idling very bad ( i figured) for about 5 minutes running very rich according to my AFR gauge.. and then it just shut off.. it wouldnt turn back on so I put the chip back in and the car started again no problem with a smoother idle at about 1100 rpms...

so i let it sit idling for about 10 minutes and no issues.. so i decided to back it up a bit into the parking spot behind me and as soon as it went into gear that i pressed the gas lightly to move it, the car started bogging down. so i put it in 1st and it started bogging more and more and then it shut off refusing to start.. during this time my AFR is reading LEAN...

so if anyone can think of anything else id love to hear it lol

im planning still to cut my cat off, and doing a compression test hopefully early next week or sunday. depending when i come back from chicago.

You can use a heat gun to test the cat, don't have to hack it up.

No video.. I can make one tho.

And opening the throttle has no effect. It just sputters and dies.

Like if I accelerate while in neutral I can hit 7k no problem

But at temp and when in gear that's when the bogging down happens..

I checked for any leaks with no luck. But i got some advice over on fJ I'm going to pull the line from the booster to the IM and see if I can spot a crack..

so, recreate this problem. let car die, try to restart it ..let it die again. See if you have fuel pressure after that
