VE cells shouldn't ever really be below 30 (or above 70) at idle/low rpm or above 130 (not even really that high) at peak power. If yours are ever out of this range, you know there is something wrong that needs to be found and fixed.
It's a small cam (.420 lift) but has quite a bit more duration than it should for a turbo cam (it's really a n/a cam) so it "acts" bigger than it is at idle/low speed. It should still be able to idle at or above 14:1.

I had some help over the weekend. Someone had the presence of mind to check for voltage at the injectors. There was 12.0 volts on the red wire to ground as expected. There was also 12.0v on the white wires to ground. That can't be right.
I have gone ahead and removed the squirt and old 60 pin harness from the vehicle. I have a new blank 60 pin connector to rebuild a new harness.
As I have been asked many times to probe the 60 pin connector while running and give values, so I plan on mounting squirt where the back seat used to go in a 74 pinto.
So far I have 2 questions: With the tfi modification and no radio ever going in the vehicle, do I still need the "foil" shielded wire for the tfi module? Will i have vacuum response issues with 15 feet of hose to the msq?
There is no "flow" of air in the MAP hose (as long as there are no leaks) so readings aren't really effected by hose length (within reason). The type of hose used is much more important. It has to be stiff enough (and thick walled enough) to hot expand/contract when boost/vacuum is present.
