If you want the BBM operate, you need the EL ECU, the vacuum solenoid and some extra wiring. You also need to get around Smartlock on the EL ECU with either a bypass module or a J3 chip.

I would get rid of the aftermarket fuel reg, its a wast and un necessary on the n/a 6, the falcon already runs a little rich stock, so adding aftermarket fuel reg is just adding more fuel that's why its running so rich..

std fuel reg is 36psi at idle and arould 40 psi under load/ no vacuum

No worries I'll put a standard one back on, its also running a big aeroflow pump as it was getting set up for a turbo, it's got a camtech 345 and a ported and polished head on it, I've got the manifold and cooler in the shed
