As of lately, itll maintain idle even at temperature.. but as soon as i put it under load to drive itll start bogging down.. at start up the afr reads rich.. at temperature it fluctuates a bit.. but when the symptoms kick in.. it leans out... there is a video a page back that shows it at idle.. it kinda sounds like its starved for fuel and then floods for fuel.. weird.. but my gauge reads a constant 40ish psi

Bigger is preferable but I do it with a small 12v emergency compressor.

ok i used a bigger compressor that my coworker let me use it..




and i have no vac leak... tightned all my couplers just in case.. did it again.. and no leaks..


what we did notice.. is there is a hesitation at acceleration.. for example..

im sitting in neutral.. i open up the throttle and it takes a second with a hiccup in order to rev up...

my buddy was under the engine bay at the time and he can see the throttle body open up and a bit later it revs...

idk.. guys... anything else?
