So I finally decided to face facts and compression test the car. Cylinder 3 and 4 were 20 and 30. :( .

So after looking at the plugs I determined it might be on the slightly lean side so I decided to run a fuel pressure test. I made a tester with a bicycle tire gauge and some air compressor line.

Fuel pressure was 33 at idle and 43psi with the vacuum line removed. Also fuel pressure didn't drop throughout the rpm range. I talked to Iarrobino10 and he thinks its a vacuum leak based on the car almost stalling when coming to a stop. So I'm going to go on the hunt for vacuum leaks.

To celebrate my good compression numbers I decides to break out the dirt bike.

So I was finally able to acquire a legitimate boost leak tester and retested for leaks in the bay. Came up with nothing so a couple thousand dollar machine is about as useful as my free ghetto one. Then I figures that I should check the gas tank for leaks because that's sort of related to vacuum. Well low and behold the filler neck was puffing more smoke than a chimney. I'm going to order one up and see if it helps.
