Something MUST be wrong..
Hey guyz... Im getting REALLY annoyed with my car.. something is wrong and i just cant put my finger on it. I have an EB1 wagon, with 4spd auto and 3.08 diff (i fort it was a 2.92) Its been converted to MPI and has pacemakers, 2.5 inch redback exhaust with one muff. Its running an ED XR cam and has a K&N pod filter.
For some reason, i just cant spin the wheels on take-off. Ive heard that a stock 4.0L auto with 3.08 can do this. Mine cant unless im turning a corner. Im thinking i may have a faulty ECU coz i keep getting a code 22 (MAP) even when ive tried 3 different MAP sensors (yes, i deleted the codes after each try) I cant find any disconnected vac lines but the car seems to be running OK apart from a lack of take off power.. Everything has been changed when i did the MPI conversion. New dizzy, sparks, coil, leads, fuel pump, filter, etc... Can the ECU be defective like this??
I should be able to spin the wheels with this setup right??
