    Post the code number.

    Check for vacuum leaks and the connection to the FPR.

    1. Please learn how to properly use punctuation and you're more likely to get help. My head hurts from the run on sentences.
    2. What mods does your car have or is it just a stock car with a rebuilt engine?
