    Well maybe you can help me with my Mustang. It doesn't idle nice and smooth. The idle is consistent and having EFI it hangs up a sec at 1,000 rpm before it settles down just like it's supposed to. It's just that the idle is a little rough. I have the timing set about 5° advanced over the stock setting.

    Here's a vid of it.

    After driving fords since the 70's And some all over the NA continent I came to one silly conclusion.

    It's always something to do with altitude timing and sensors.
    I've yanked sensors off of 5.0 TBirds And an 86 stang. Going up the big horn
    it'd run at idle like it'd found a new engine from the back of the weekly UPS truck delivery man.
