    I disconnected the vacuum hose for the brake booster, brakes are good for now. Gonna drive it a little bit more to be sure. So guess the brake booster is shot. Probably some crap clogging up the valve inside.

    Adjusted the CO today... HC is through the roof. Runs "fine" but has slow acceleration, backfires, sputters, smells gas and use alot of gas. As I said, I suspect that the company that rebuilt my engine got the timing chain screwed up. Easiest way to check this? Performed a compression test a while back, and that was not too bad, so I don't think any valves are screwed up. Take a look at the pictures, the one that reads 1,5 CO is the right bank, and the 1,48 CO is the left bank.

    You might have to get a fuel pressure gauge and take some readings to make sure the CPR/WUR you have is within spec and take it from there. The fuel pressure gauge should be compatible for k/ ke jetronic and have the isolator valve in line with the fuel pressure gauge's hoses...
