Spout connector

Would there be any reason to leave out the spout connector? I just noticed it wasn't there... And would that cause a drivability problem?

I'm hoping it's as easy as a new one to fix my baby!!!

It's a little plug on the wires going to the distributor and controls the timing through the computer...all I know for sure is that it must be removed in order to set base timing because if it's not the computer will adjust accordingly!

+1, and some people advance their car and leave it out. I dont really see the point it doing that, but it shouldn't hurt your car with it out.

It may cause some drivability problems in a speed density car.

Re: Spout connector

there is no reason to not run the spout connector... not a good one anyway. go to the junk yard and get one.

it will start better, idle better, and fuel milage pick up a tiny bit. throttle response too. do you know where your timing is currently set?
