Hello everyone,
Just picked up a new (to me) ramcharger. Its an 88 2WD with a 318 tbi, an A-999 3 speed lock-up tranny, an 8 1/4 rear end with 2.90:1 gears.
I have a couple of questions. First, how much power can the TBI make? If I keep it, I want to be able to do some upgrades so the engine has a little more power. Does anyone build any performance parts for the TBI?
Secondly, right now, the truck runs, but at idle its so rich you can light the exhaust on fire. Also, it trys to die when in gear at a stop light. After I get the RPMs up, it seems to clear up. Any Ideas on why it would run so rich?
Also, the computer doesnt put out any codes, besides the normal 12 and 55.

I appreciate any help you can offer,
C.J.

Thanx for the replies everyone, I have a few freinds that suggested O2 sensor too, so I guess that will be one of the next things on my list.
Thanks,
C.J.
