Sorry for leaving you guys hanging....
I did manage to get the car to run ok, however I still wasn't happy with it's not so perfect idle and CEL for the missing EGR. Since the ECM is 33 years old I figure it's on borrowed time so I've installed a Holley Terminator X foxbody kit. I just got it running yesterday, I've been watching Leech Motorsports videos as well as some other Youtube foxbody guys that have used this kit, so far I'm very impressed....haven't driven it yet as I'm working out a no start hot issue I've had since installing the engine. I just installed the high torque 92 starter and it just clicks, it sounds like it tries to engage the ring gear but but doesn't. I did some research and the OEM starter has 9 teeth and these have 10, but from everything I've read these are a direct replacement after making the necessary wiring changes.
Any ideas guys?
Thank you all again for this wealth of information this site provides!!!
