    put a vac gauge on the line to the EGR and watch what it does. If it doesn't vary, but simply shows vacuum or no vacuum, the regulator isn't working right. I had a sticky one and fixed it with a...

    oh, no variable? hm. Maybe worth checking the ground connection too if you haven't. Rust under the clamp reduces the power.

    even the stock tanks tend to take a good while to rust. The galvanized coating makes them difficult to paint anyway. I'd leave it. If you want to paint something, paint up inside the car where the...

    Turn the amps up more on the welder. Looks like its not actually melting the base metal, only the wire.

    I think thats the same kit I'm using but I found it on ebay for closer to $20. Look around, you may find it from other vendors cheaper. Works fine on the Continental and it gave me a little more...

    Looks like cracks in the conformal coating to me. If there were going to be cracks, it would be in the board itself, not just the copper. Honestly the copper is usually forgiving enough that the...

    to stock E7, no. They suck too honestly. Slightly better at higher rpm, but only marginally so. You might get another 500 rpm of useful power with the HO cam but thats about it, and thats even...

    Put a timing light on it and see if it holds stable. One of the symptoms of the sloppy chain is surging when running.

    also, if you haven't yet, inspect the vacuum line to the MAP sensor. That...

    Each generation has some gremlins. I think its the 03 or 03-04 that have timing tensioner issues. The early post-03 models also had weaker rear axle shafts that fail too early. I think that got...

    It should stay at trim height for weeks if things aren't leaky. The car I messed up last year hasn't been started since January and the air suspension is still up.

    I believe the system does a...

    Should be fine. Just mind that its the 200 hp HO, it uses E6 heads. Vaguely possible that with a hotter than stock HO it will run lean a little quicker than the 225 hp version would.

    Check the timing if you haven't. If that is wrong, it won't idle correctly. 10 BTDC with the SPOUT connector unplugged.

    where would it be storing vacuum though? I don't recall a reservoir for that circuit that could be applied to the dashpot.

    I suspect its meant to leak otherwise it wouldn't release. I don't...

    I hate springs and spring compressors. They make me very nervous. Single best thing about air suspension, releasing stored energy is simple and safe.

    Cut more out of the junkyard car than you think you will need. Its much easier to trim it at your place than to try and grow the metal that isn't there anymore.
