lol, i cant believe youd recommend a adjustable fuel pressure regulator over a AFC for adjusting tuning in fuel. have you tried a afc? or are you talking out of your arse? ive done a lot of research as well, and for 96+ l67'* the afc 2.2 (2.0'* were a pain to use) is recommending highly over a adjustable fpr

how much kr does your car have?

perhaps more then you think

Mikey, I don't suggest you follow in Blazin'* footsteps with regards to talking out your arse or accusing me of the same.

I know very well how and why an AFC works because I've looked into it extensively and have the education and experience to back it up. Not only that, but the advice and knowledge I've gained by querying several experts in the field, and watching hundreds of thousands of posts here which include difficulties in dialing them in and outright failures.

I also fully understand the 'laws of tuning'. In the digital age, it'* easy to find a quick solution like a PCM or AFC that solves your problems, but it'* even easier to overlook the fact that you should have solved your problems through mechanical means first, as you don't have the 'mods to support the mods'.

You don't even need to be discussing the pro'* and con'* of an FPR or AFC over a PCM or an EIEIO, simply because your setup is gauranteed to have problems due to the fact that you didn't set it up right mechanically.

Most people with half a brain would understand instantly why you have KR. The WHY is because you haven't allowed your exhaust gasses a good path out. You don't fix that with an AFC calibrator.

You fix that with PEM'* or Headers.

Now get that **** back on topic or don't post. Maybe you need to go back and read the original post in this topic for a refresher.

Want your own topic? Start one. Anyone that cares to post ON TOPIC can go back and read Dubduece'* original question.
