Cobalt- Yes, I'm mindful about fuel pressure. I have a pump that only puts out 6 psi and a gauge on the fuel rail, so I'm pretty confident there.
Fbrid- Yeah I was thinking along those lines too, and although I have more tuning to do it does seem as though the difference between idle in park and idle in drive is vast. I guess that would point to a difference in timing at those two points. Lousy part is my balancer is hidden by the stupid long water pump so I really can't get a good idea about the timing. I set it at 12 and have been going by degrees of distributor movement, where 1=2. I'll look into the timing, but I'm not sure if I could even get it to start without a lot of kickback at 24 degrees initial. Seems like a lot.
