      Hey Dave, Since you were spot on with the brake diagnosis, I thought I would ask you about another issue. I do not have as much power on takeoff as I did when I first got the car ( very noticeably different). since the car sat for many years, I was wondering if maybe the injectors are clogged, O2 sensor bad ,etc. I don't know anyone down here to help me. I would be willing to drive to you if you ever had time .

      .I have an 87 national with 11,000 original miles. when I hit my brakes, the pump clicks on/off erratically and the brakes go to the floor. it still stops, but doesn't feel very safe, . I metered the plug when I hit the brakes and the voltage does not fluctuate like the pump goes on/off. Do u think I need to replace the pump/ motor assy. or what? any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

        I don't know him personally, but he has sold a good bit of stuff on the board here.

      Dave,
      Good morning,
      On PL the ecm a/f ratio is running really rich (13.5). Running a 6.1 tweak chip. Blm running 138 after warmup. I recently changed out the MAF with a new one. Anything I mentioned kick up an idea.

      Thanks

      Don't mind at all. BTW, sorry for the late reply. I guess I never paid much attention to the tiny little message totification on the main page.

      Hi Dave, I see that you appear to be a Maftpro guru.(compared to me anyway) I was hoping to pick your brain about the tuning aspect of the unit when I get to that point again. I say again because Ive installed it once and the car never ran correct even after hours of fiddling with it. I met Bob at bowling green and he tried to get it in the ballpark with no avail. Anyhow, he took it with him back to Michigan and sent it back to me and ive yet to put it back in. Im in the process of installing the bung for the wideband and the ATS. Should have it complete soon. Do you mind if I use ya as a personal tuning coach? Thanks in advance, Scott
