check your timing.

I have already checked my wiring schematics and dont have a new direction to chase. When I looked at my fuel pressure it was 72 psi so i put a new pressure regulator on it and made sure my fmu wasnt blocked . but no matter what i do it seems to run bad. so now i have 40 psi fuel pressure and still have problems. thanks for the reply

another possibility is the throttle position sensor
its a small chance that it messed up at the same time as the swap

I found my problem the egr valve is stuck open giving me a permanent vacuum leak. thanks for the reply guys and all i had to do was adjust my fuel pressure to compensate and make my stoichiometric air mixture correct.
