    And it doesn't seem FiTech is in any hurry either - so the only, realistic choice is probably a carb....
    I guess if you switch to a carb you can at least have a base to compare to the FI Tech later? So maybe not a total waste of time. Could prove interesting even.

                • So I bought the Holley equivalent of what I have now. Yesterday FiTech called back (which was nice), but in the conversation the person said "well, I don't know why it's coming back, I wouldn't have allowed it." "Well, your computer that you installed burned up, then the second computer that you provided didn't work right".... he never backed off that initial statement. Fine, I get it... go pound sand. While I might be surprised, I am already hearing the words "it isn't our fault" ... fine, as a customer, it's my money that fixes the problem and you don't get any of it.... add to that the great advertising that I'll be giving when I show up (if) in Utah, and their business model seems a bit nearsighted. But it's not my company... so they can do whatever they want. I could say more, but I'll save it until after they get the chance to somehow blame me for all of it, including the mis-machined throttle body.

                    Hope you have as good luck as Dick had with the Holley swap. The Volvo really is running like a top now and the difference is night and day - we'll hope he didn't just get lucky!

                      McSquatch works there now, especially because he didn't get asked by me for input, I'll hold him completely responsible for anything that might go wrong or that which I imagine might be going wrong.
