thanks for the replys guys....i got a extra temp sensor im going to install and let it sit there.....so i looked around and came up with these answers for my first 2 questioms...
just hook them both up to a vacuum sorce around the intake... is this correct?.. also i read somewere not to tee off the fuel regulator..cause it will cause a lean condition? i dont belive this will happen but i did read it in the faqs

Lean condition, running out of fuel, or rich condition, too much fuel. What are you using for fuel management? If you turn the settings up too high on a s-afc it wont rev. If the fuel pump cant keep up or the injectors are too small it will run out of fuel and wont rev. You can usually spot a rich condition by the black smoke coming out of the tail pipe. Any CELs or codes?
