1988 Mustang GT Problems
So does anybody have any experience with non mass air 5.0's? Ive got a random slight miss at idle. Also the headlights randomly turn on and off, sometimes when i use the high-beams thy'll come back on.
Checked fuel pressure today and i have 30-31 psi at idle with regulator hooked up. Jumps up to 40-42 psi disconnected. Runs a lot better with it unplugged. What should it be at? Thinking i need a Walbro 255 lph and a adjustable FPR.
My neighbor thinks it might be an injector going bad but i dont want to pull the intake to check. Hoping i can find a easy solution first.
WOT on the highway it feels like there is something randomly causing reduced power intermittent. Pulls hard then kinda lets up, then pulls hard again, randomly cycles like that. Sometimes it wont do it at all and sometimes it stays "reduced" for days then all of a sudden it just clears up.
I've had the car up for sale a couple times and still have it so i might as well enjoy it. Its just so freaking slow. previous owner thought it had a 347 stroker and 450 hp... Its stock..... Some people will believe anything a used car dealer tells them. What a moron....
