    Cylinder wash. Basically you have too much fuel in engine and it washes the lubricating oil off the cylinder walls and leads to accelerated wear/broken rings. It can also contaminate your oil. Your injectors flow twice what your stock ones would have.

    Read his mod list. Absolutely nothing on the site would help him.

    Restore the map, change your oil, and hope no damage was done.

    You're going to need to do a pre-dyno inspection (~+$250) before getting tuned to make sure it's not a physical problem. If it is, tuning won't fix it and they likely won't want to touch it until it's fixed.

    There are no shortcuts here. Put the old map back on and drive it like a baby just to a tuning shop. Don't drive it otherwise or you're risking something going catastrophically wrong.

    It needs a professional tune. PERIOD.
