I changed the filter yesterday after hunting Easter Eggs; maybe just a little better. I hooked to the tractor and ran up the road about fifteen miles or so and it went limp three times. I really had to hoss it to get the code but it's still there (without the HP turned up). Before I changed the FPRV the engine would 'hunt' when idling; it's smooth now so I'm confident that the valve must have been at least part of the problem.
I noticed in your sig. that you have EFI live. Can you program around this kind of issue with that setup? CP3? What's that?

Thanks, Steve
