Nah, I bet they'll trade that other car in the background first. But a minivan really isn't too useful unless you have more than one kid, I think. I mean what's the use of all those extra seats if there's nobody to put in them? An Escort can hold a 3 person family just fine. (Heck, my parents got by with a Nova and a Geo Prizm (Both GM versions of the Corolla, LOL) for a LONG time.)

I'd be a little worried about having stock timing with a 75 shot. If you run it nice and rich with at least 93 octane it should be fine, but I started to get a little deto at around 8-9psi with stock timing and 93 octaine.

am not getting my kid to the scort...too early...anyway am running race fuel(3.99 a gal. damn)...and i went ahead and removed the vac line going to the fpr(simiulating wot/atmospheric pressure)..so far no pinging....but am planning on getting a msd-dis-2 for my ignition box and retard...

Pulling the VAC line will only run full WOT fuel pressure all the time, like when ideling. You'll still have the same fuel pressure at WOT with or with out the vac line hooked up on the FPR.

but in a wet kit the fuel solenoid compensates for the fuel when injecting nitrous.....properjetting should be at hand and i had the research for and went down to .22 for n2o and .22 for fuel...it makes the proper approximation for ambient A/F/N ration when spraying....

OK, But pulling off the vac line to the FPR just makes the FPR think your allways at WOT. So there's no differance in fuel pressure at WOT with or with out the vac line hooked up. So really all your doing is wasting gas by having a higher fuel pressure when you dont need it.

With full vac (closed throttle plate) the FPR set's the fuel pressure to 32psi. At WOT or no vaccume the FPR set's it to 40psi.

yup...am just wasting the fuel..thought you were talking bout the added fuel for the n2o...anyway thanks for bringing the topic up.....but am having a good time having a lot of backfire and a little flamer?(i see the rear light up when i downshift for wot and i like the sound of backfire...lolz).....anyway thanks for the concern for it....also nice pony....what did you do anyway in changing your stock timing?...

Thank's. I'm still using stock ignition timing, just colder plug's and 93 gas, with 24# injectors/FMU. I just try to keep the boost below the ping leval.

Some day I'll get a custom chip, and hook up the water injecton.
