Replied. I did pull them and soaked them overnight then Seafoamed it. Might put some in the tank and oil then do the vac line again.

i am up way too late again searching teh interwebs for interwebz stuffs...

anyway, i would agree with ken on checking the injectors, but i thought that you had swapped them out and cleaned them earlier?? (see, i can 'member stuff, too...)


but if you haven't run any seafoam though i would do that,

and road blast.

probaly gotta stretch her legs a little...

besides, why u post in teh e30 section...i thought that we already established they don;t know how to do anything but swap m50 into that chassis...

Because of the 87 octane, the engine was retarding the time to compensate. So maybe the timing is off/old gas/I-have-no-idea-but-this-sounded-good-before-typing-it
I ran it empty and filled her up with some 89!


I'll keep driving and report back. I need to fix my fuel pump because the fuel sloshes out the tank when I turn hard lol.
