    So I got the spi head installed I am having to modify the stock intake manifold to fit the 1.9 fuel rail because I could not find a 97 spi with a fuel rail that had return so that has been a little bit of a pain I am however pretty happy I got a set of 19 lb mustang gt injectors that fit perfect and plug right in.

    Depends on your FMU. Anything over 10psi is dangerous with an FMU.

    so I should probably only run like 8 psi to be safe

    Re-read you have a 12:1 FMU. You can boost alittle more with those(still under 10psi) but I would stay around 5psi for awhile and monitor things. Do you have gauges set up?

    You will make more power with a stock 9:1 1.9 SEFI at 6 psi then you will with a low compression hybrid motor at 8psi.
    You done goofed. Put the stock head back on... or get some real engine management.

    It does not matter in the sense that car will run either way. You want the MAF to be away from the TB but not to far.

    OK so I should just hook them up and see which way the fan spins when it gets up to temp and with a complete connection the temp sensor should work right

    So I have finished my spi head swap I have everything hooked up all vacumn lines but the car seems to idle pretty low between 300 and 500 rpm is this normal for this low compression build your input would be greatly appreciated

    Aright I see your problem. The pcv connector at top of intake manifold has 3 connections the top has vacuum but to two coming out does not have vacuum. Those r for to cool the pcv usually has coolant running thru them. Those vac lines need to go to where u have it plugged at.
