I suppose autozones don't typically have exhaust gas analyzers in their lending pool?

You brought the pressure down For idle what's the pressure with the vacuum pulled?

yeah, get that reading for Que, but also check for a leak in the FPR vacuum line again. I'd imagine that there has to be a vacuum leak there.

If you can't find the leak, go borrow the vacuum gauge from your friends at autozone

When I pull the vacuum line to the fpr it raises the fuel pressure by about 5-6 lbs instantly.

If it goes up to 39/40 psi then I am really suspicious that your vacuum line isn't giving it enough vacuum.

Do you have any photos of where the vacuum line is supposed to be routed? More specifically the fuel pressure regulator vacuum line and the map sensor vacuum line. I have a feeling I may have a vacuum line in the wrong place on the intake manifold.

So I re-checked my vacuum line for the FPR and it turns out I had a T with another vacuum line for my evap canister release valve. I think the T connector was leaking because I took that out and ran just the FPR line to the manifold and my fuel pressure dropped to 30-31 psi at idle. When I remove the vacuum line it goes straight to 38-39 psi.

I changed my plugs to champion copper plugs. All of my previous plugs were fouled and almost completely black at the electrodes. I also replaced my O2 sensor and found it had some dark coloring to it on the side facing the manifold. I guess I have been running really rich for quite a while and just never realized it.

I did pass smog this time around so that was great. Here are the new numbers. CO2 14.5 / 14.6, O2 .4 / .2, HC 89 / 42, CO .27 / .18, NO 555 / 545
