:) Thought I'd post this on here to see what kind and how many cars from 89-97 running with bottle. Kinda get a registry type thing going on here. Might be useful as well in getting information for those that may ask for it.

Post year, type car, engine: stock, modified, purpose built etc, mods,and some basic information such as type system: wet/Dry, system using, and best E.T's etc to date.

Be something to look at and compare to, and so on. For general information purposes!!!

Now we're getting somewhere!!!!! Looks like our "Little List" continues to grow.

Badbird 95, sounds to me like you hit it with too large a shot on a stock fuel system, too much timing and that ported MAF may not have kept the Fuel trim at the appropriate level.

Irregardless though, sorry you lost a motor. Hope you are getting the new set-up ironed out.
