Ca18det rough idle bogging running rich

Recommended Posts

Hi have a ca18det which is over fueling badly, blows black smoke.. idles lumpy as.. plugs go black pretty quick. Seems to be alright at high rpm if you slowly build them up.

if you quickly hit accelerator it’s like it floods and almost dies and is not responsive at all

I have no vacuum leaks, 

if I block off pcv it dies, 

i have changed the maf 

cleaned AAC valve ( -also doesn’t really change idle when playing around with adjustment screw) 

everything seems to be working getting power where it should and what not.. engine was running perfectly fine before it was swapped into this car

plugged gauge on fuel Line and it is like 60psi/4 bar ? Not sure how accurate that is but pretty sure it should be like half
