    what kind of leaks should I be looking for? Air leaks or oil/fuel leaks. I think I'm going to take it to Japtrix racing over on the other coast once I have the accessport and have it tuned on their dyno. It looks like the stock turbo and no idea about the prior tune because the dealer bought the car from another dealership.

    How far south are you in naples?

    Ugh so it was bought from a dealer already modified and they didn't include the AP...well I dont know what to say about that then honestly :/

    Edit: you sure it was tuned with an AP and not open source? It just seems kinda dumb on the original owner's part if he had it tuned with an AP and kept it, because he can't use that AP on anything else and your ECU would be locked out too (unless you can override/unlock it which Im sure you can)

    Just check for Vacuum and intake leaks they will definately throw your Air Fuel Ratio off. You can build an adapter for your intake from parts from home depot:
    Stealth 316 - Intake pressure tester
    or buy one premade:
    Intake Leak Pressure Tester (just randomly found this site)

    If I had one I'd loan it to ya, but I borrow one of my friend's when he's in town

    You have a wideband and boost gauge at least right?

    I have both gauges. The wideband says I run really lean.

    Well I would definately try to test for Intake/Vac leaks first off.
    You just need an adapter for your intake and an air compressor. Just dont put more pressure in than around 10-15 pounds or so. See if it holds steady or not and go from there.

    That would be really awesome! What kind of car/mods do you have?

    I get my accessport tomorrow! Hopefully it will run a little bit better until I can get a good tune done.

    Welcome to the site!!

    With the mods the car seems to have you would actually be better off getting a pro-tune. Especially with the FMIC. Plus you'll be able to learn a lot more about your car. The AP will not make much of a difference.
