well.. that was in reply to this
"no exhaust means no back pressure so the unburned fuel is being sucked out a little back pressure will help in fuel scavaging "

thanks for all your help...

on these cars.. how many o2's are there?

on my 95 bird there are 4.. and i was told 2 of them are basically pointless

are there just 2 o2's on the fox's?

what else could be causing it to run rich?
if i go out tomorrow and talk to the boys in town, and find an h pipe, and get some brand new o2's
if i am still running rich, what would i look for?

just for my own future reference..
is MAF more dependant upon o2's?
i have ordered a MAF conversion, for my motor that will be going in next year,
i have a 302 bored to a 311 we built with 10.5 to 1 compression
plan on throwin on a trickflow intake, and doing the maf conversion..
hope i dont run into this problem again..
i dont know much about EFI

... where is the air/fuel screw lmao
