Response to Oh... I do remember something about the surging...
Hey Mark and Tony. Thanks for the replies. I'll check the noise out closer once I get the Spider's front suspension back on and can pull the car in the shop. I'm sure the guy could've spent a lot of time on the X diagnosing various problems with it but our deal was he would spend an hour to see if he could diagnose the FI problem. I'm not only an extreme penny pincher but it was also meant to be a test to see if he'd be a good and reliable mechanic. I'm not an untrusting soul, but I've been in the car service business for 20 years and I know people, especially females can be taken advantage of. I'm not ready to sink a lot of money in the car just yet since it's third on the list of Fiats to work on. I've still got to rejet and retune the dual Webers on the 71 and pull the 72 in for stripping.
Ron and I did do a leakdown on the cylinders and found #1 at 40%. The other cylinders were good. This car needs so much TLC and I'd rather wait in case the engine does need to come out for when I'm ready to do the bodywork.
