I didn't have the time to spend today.  As it was I could only stay until 12:30 and Eherenberg was late.  I only got to see one heat.
 
I never have time to do what I want to off my property

Boy I'm stepping in it. . . .
 
Summit let me return the 5.9 ECM.  I don't need ti as the 5.2 is working great.  I think the hardware is fooling it to thinking it's a smaller engine.
 
And I am getting credit for the injectors.  Seems there was a 30 day return policy no questions asked.
 
It pays to be a good customer in certain reputable places like Summit and Amazon.  Of all places, I found those injectors on Amazon.
 
I'm getting $480.00 back on this project!

Another reason for injection.  Better fuel economy

I'm running into a delemma
 
The open loop runs a bit leaner than the closed loop.  Go figure.  I did bump the timing a tad and it leaned it a bit.  If the weather holds out, tomorrow I'll bump it one more degree and see what happens.  I got the parts to move the A/F sensor up to the left exhaust pipe near the engine too.  But I can tell, it's trying to lean up.  The computer is capable of 25% + or - compensaton.  I think I may have to get the timing to a point where it won't ping, but will lean out more.  Right now I can tell by the smell of the exhaust and the A/F gauge.
 
But the mileage has gone up, I venture to say I'm up in the 20's now.  Just by the driving and gas gauge I can tell it's come way up.  But I won't tank it up until I see the meter lean out a bit.
 
The A/F is quite active now.  The 5.2 it would rarely show any changes.  Now when on a long decel it shows leaning out quite a bit.  I think the pooter is still learning too

I found one.  I got a 2000 rail with the new injectors for 40 bucks.  The 2000 injectors were a 3 nozzel tip allowing the fuel to attomize better.  All I need is a hose to connect to the rail.  I know where one is too. 
 
Now I am trying to find a suitable pressure regulator.  I need to hit 50 PSI to get it right.  It's too bad I sold those damned injectors.  Who knew. . .   The info is so sketchy  on that era, I have had to use logic to piece it together.
 
Instead of using a 1 year only system, I am going to upgrade the rail and injectors to the 50 pounders.  The ECM's are easier to get and less expensive.  I am at the point where I am now starting to put together a home grown system by mixing and matching.  This will make it easier when I do upgrade the computer as I can just use the factory harness and adapt it to the new ECM.
 
The 93 5.9 used an external fuel regulator, located in the tank.  The computer is a 1 year only and i don't want to be in that trap. 
 
Right now it's still running lean, but I disconnected the vacuum line that regulates the fuel pressure on the first common rail and it ran a bit better and richer.  So now I'm at 43 PSI all the time.
 
 
This is way over your head Stan
