Who has a 5.7 GM setup with carb? Any pics under the hood? Clearance issues between air cleaner and hood? What air filter setup did you use and what if anything are you doing to prevent mud from getting all in the air filter?
Oh yea... easy is relative....aggrivation is another thing. I'm told my buddy may have figured it out. I've been having to work a lot lately and did not have much free time. I'm told they got it running right over the phone this PM. I might be a bad coolant sensor or 02 sensor. It passed fuel pressure test and had no codes set. I'll follow up if its fixed and what was the problem. TBI are pretty simple....vortecs both what I have and the new style can be aggrivating... My TBI pickup was almost bullet-proof, but a vortec does make some reasonable power.
I need to get one of the newer scan tools....I use my firends "auto-xray" one and its fairly crude...it does read most things, but I dont' think it supports all the parameters fully.
I agree...that its a big step going carb....I've not gone "postal" just yet but you can really waste some money on these fuel setups... maybe I'm good now...should know over the weekend.
