Red face The I did something stupid update

Hello everyone!

Thanks for your help. Here is an update from my post(s) from last week. Short story long, I pulled out the Fuel Pump Relay when the car was running and it never started again. I had to solder a broken circuit in the FPR as well.

Well, it was the Ignition Control Box that kept the car from running. I replaced that and $265.00 plus tax later, I got it to run. Then I had to replace the OVP and it runs but it idles like crap and black smoke emits from the tailpipe. It goes down the road just fine. It is almost like a vacuum leak.

Is their another component that I need to check/replace?
