Hey guys, I'm nearing my wits end with my car (76 280z with a 78 engine n42head n42block). The P.O seems to have deleted all of the emissions and most of the vacuum lines (egr, pcv, bcdd all blocked off). I am having this issue now where i have back firing from the intake at idle (dozen or so per minute) and after warm backfiring out the exhaust and loss of power while on the road. Additionally, the car seems to start at a very high idle. The fuel system is all custom cell with -AN set up (pressure great), valves adjusted to spec, injectors rebuilt with new gaskets, pintels, screens ect, Vacuum was checked and rechecked including with carb cleaner trick. Timing checked, temp senor replaced, all connectors replaced with new, all new plugs wires cap and rotor, new coil with internal regulator (external resistor bypassed), AFM checked for any possible signs of wear or anything, shows nothing looks great. TPS looks good, engages when suppose to. I am obsessive and have done tons of research and I cant seem to figure this out. Can anyone save this Z from being driven into a lake due to frustration? Thanks!
