I just looked at the intense PCM thing but it doesn't have options that correspond with different sized pulleys.

understand that they dont have a PCM for a 3.4 pulley and a different one for the 3.3, 3.2, 3.1 etc....

the PCM has different paramaters that will have effect on other mods that you will have...in this case kill your KR

If you want one programmed for a certain pulley you have to order a custom burn PCM.
If you are running a 3.5" or 3.4" pulley the standard PCM is the one for you.
You might also want to consider getting some PEM'*. Your KR could alse be from one of the really poor flowing front cast iron manifolds. May not cure it all, may not cure any, but you will definitely see a gain from them once the KR is killed.

1. Cleaning my TB, I'm sure the K&N filter sends more microscopic crap the TB'* way.
2. Gap my plugs to .53, that might do a little more for KR than #1
3. Check our my O2 sensor(*). On that note, could anyone tell me which sensor to replace becaus I'm pretty sure there are 3 of them(1 behind cat, 1 on each exhaust mani.)
4. Get an new fuel filter. Is there any thing else I could do to check for fuel system blockage?
5. With only 30k miles, I'm pretty sure my wires are good but please correct me if I'm wrong.
1.) I don't believe that a K&N will allow much if anything by compared to a normal paper filter. As long as the filter is oiled properly it should be fine. Beware of over oiling as it will kill your Mass Air Flow sensor in a heart beat. But clean the TB anyway thats good to begin with

2.) Which plugs are you running right now?

3.) There are 2 O2 sensors and only the one that matters is in the down pipe, it aids in engine management. The 2nd O2 after the cat is only there to make sure your cat is working normally.

4.) A new filter would be a easy change but you could check Fuel pressure also. But Fuel pressure at idle isn't to much help you want to get a gauge you can watch while your drive for WOT pressure.

5.) Wires should still be good but if there were bad you'd probably have rough idle or some missing.

McGrath: I have autolite 104'*, so I'll check the O2 sensor in the down-pipe, I'll get a new fuel filter, I don't think I could swing getting any kind of fuel pressure gauge, and I'de is fine so wires will stay. Thanks for the advice.

OLBlueEyesBonne: What does PEM stand for? I don't think I'll get header for a long time. they aren't cheap.

1993 SLE: Is it the Binary file or the other one. The binary file thing looks like the best option for me, other than messing with the timing, I like all the other stuff it does(no governer, shift points, fuel/air tables.) I just don't like the idea of messing with the timing just yet.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned octane. It would seem to me, that the higher the octane in your fuel, the less KR you're gonna have. I notice a big jump in performance between 87 and 91 octane. But I waited until after 3 tankfulls to make that assumption though. I also ran 4 bottles (1 per tankfull) of Techron fuel injector cleaner through it. That really smoothed out the idle.

Ported exaust manifolds. They are cheap alternative to headers. Not as good as headers but can help supprisingly well and net a good gain on topend.

I put BG supercharge II in every 5th tank or so. If its good enough for a Chysler dealer to insist on adding it to the oil change package, it couldn't hurt my car.

I run 93 all the way, I might to a little research on what stations have 94, if I find one then they will have a permenant customer.

Thanks 1993, I'll have to do that whenever I get my hands on an extra PCM.





Sooo, anyways I gapped my plugs and picked up a bosch O2 sensor to put in, tried to put it in after the plugs but it was a bitch to loosen and it was getting dark. I'll get the O2 sensor and a fuel filter in tomorrow and pray all that money does something for KR.
