1989 Mustang GT Keeps dying
\015 I added a BBK Intake manifold, BBK Cold Air Intake, BBK Fuel Pressure Regulator, BBK Pulleys, MSD Ignition and a Hypertech chip. We have tried for 2 days with and without a timing light to get it to stop dying. The first day with the timing light we didn't have a chance to let the car warm up before we left the shop but it kept dying on the way home. The second day without the timing light we put the car on the freeway for about 20 minutes and when the car came close to 5mph it kept dying.\015
Make sure the inside of your throttle body doesn't have a gunk build up. If so, clean in out with some carb. cleaner really well. If the crack is plugged up in the throttle body, air cannot get into the engine at idle in which the car will die. Are you running an aftermarket cam? If you are, drill a 5/32 hole in the center of the lower half of the throttle plate in the throttle body. This helps a great deal as well.
