Can you please ADD that to your signature?

Your boost control solonoid is also a suspect then. What boost do you read at wide open throttle?

I'd like to say we shouldn't rule out the BCS even if boost seems to be functioning 100% properly. Had that issue and enjoyable code myself. BCS had no symptoms of anything wrong, except setting a code.

If the "fuel'* been in it for a while," I'd sent he meant "3 years."

Drain the tank and refill it with good gas. Sounds like there'* water in it to me.

182 is high
http://intense-racing.com/ has a much better high flow one for $124.99
also check your fuel pressure regulator...its the round thing on the back of the fuel rail....pull the vaccum line off and look for gas or see if it smells like gas if it does its bad and needs replaced
