It don't work that way... Get a boost gauge(not factory) and adjust your boost to 14-15 psi. I hope you have a adjustabe fuel regulator. adj it to 43psi(line off) with your fuel pressure gauge you have to buy or borrow. When you get your scan tool hooked up we will guide you from there..

You can make a make shift boost gauge out of any pressure gauge, Just put a barbed fitting on it, wedge it between your dash and windshield and T into your vacuum line somewhere. You could probably get a decent gauge from grainger for under $20.

This is a busy time of the year and I just got my jury duty notice today. If you want after the holiday's I will give you a hand fine tuning your combo. I'm out your way often.

Let him help you set it up if he is close by...I would take the 3.5 turns out of the boost for the moment...you really don't have a clue what the boost is after changing that based upon my experience with adjustable actuators...

I don't wanta come to NY to change headgaskets!
steve beleave me i dont want to do a head gasket job i dont have the money for it.
