Yeah. The car doesn't really warm up until you drive it.

So.... The next steps I need to take:

Replace fuel pump with spare.

Get rid of coolant leak, Hopefully by pulling the UIM and plugging the holes....

get CAI built with proper pipe.

Any thoughts?

I have my UIM in my lap. I swear it took ten minutes to pull it. I drilled the coolant passages in the LIM to 1/2" so I can use a 1/2-13 plug. Now I just have to clean the heack out of everything and put up the tools for the night, It'* getting dark.

I couldn't leave the car overnight in peices whe it was soo easy to put it back together. I pulled out my 2K watt nightlight and buttoned her up. Very nice now, No coolant leak.

I still need to look for my spare fuel pump, But I think I know where it is.

I can now have an L27 TB off in like five minutes, It'* extremely simple now that I have soooo much practice. I'ma try to get the pump installed, Get a run with it, Swap out the TB, get another run within a half hour, Then see what you guys can gather from the results.

Ya know, It really didn't look the hard to pop the pump out, But that'* two hours of my life gone. My spare pump is seized, The pump in my car was incorrectly installed. The rubber tube from the pump to the pump assembly was half off, I called AutoZone and they want $100 for a new pump... That'* going to have to wait. I was hoping installing the pump correctly would be enough, But no, I get the same pressure readings as before. On the plus side I only saw 2* of KR once and all my trims run below 110 at idle now. Project delayed further. Yee haw.

And while I had the pump out , I rigged it up to my pressure guage, It makes 85 PSI. Why doesn't it do that in the car? Does that mean maybe my FPR is bad?

28* of KR?? I'd keep my foot out of it till you can get that fixed. There'* been a couple people selling pumps on here for cheaper. I saw one guy not too long ago, still in the box for $60-70 if I remember.

I wouldn't trust the trim TOO much, its comparative. If for a long time it runs at 30psi the computer will learn the trims according to it and 'normal' for 30psi will read 128. If the pump has a good day and reads 32psi the PCM will still be running off its old maps and according to its requested pulse it'll be rich, resulting in 110 and such. So basically it probably just means its running a little better than last time, but not optimal. JMO though

Maybe the fuel filter is clogged, and limiting your PSI? Or a bad regulator?
