Those who have been following my Ford Fairmont build know last episode I finally got it running following the GT40P head swap, but it runs poorly. In this episode we try a little more timing and throw a vacuum gauge on the car to try and diagnose it a little further. Not sure I know where to go next, but also took the time to remove the smog pump on the $4k budget build.
