    I feel like I saw this car in Orange County and if you are in Long Beach it wouldnt be a stretch haha. Go to Church Automotive or if he is backed up check out Yimi in Santa Clarita. Yimi would be a far drive from LB but its just an option.

    Welcome!

    Do not listen to people telling you to buy the AP. The ots maps on the AP will not work with your mods. Like Mikie said those mods are pretty high quality, I'd assume that the previous owner has a pro-tune on it. As previously advised, find a tuner local to you and try to find out what the tune is.

    Tons of tuners around Long Beach, shouldn't be a problem to get a pro tune.

    Your lowered fuel economy will go up with a proper tune as well.

    Protune = Professional shop that will tune your vehicle to the mods and your vehicle.

Then you can figure out what the map is from there and have some of the more tuning savy members here take a look at the logs/map.

    Then possibly take it to a tuner to see what's up.
    ^ This. You should find out whether there is a tune on the car. That being said if there are aftermarket injectors in the car it wouldn't be running without a base map.

    Anyways, great list of mods and welcome to the forum!

    Thanks everyone! I got my car for a little over 28k. I think I paid a lot but oh we'll too late now. I also just found that I have steel braided brake lines too.

    I had a question. My car idels a little over 1000 and the idel jumps up and down about a 100. Like its breathing. What does this mean?

    This! With the mods you have listed (ebcs, injectors, etc), if you car isn't protuned, it wouldn't be running. Speaking of, how is it running?

    And seriously folks, PLEASE stop recommending that this dude get an AP! He's WAY beyond OTS maps.

    Only when it's cold ("cold start")? Or constantly?

    Why not just bring it to a dealership for a checkup? It has warranty.

    Okay, seriously (again), if you don't have any SOUND advice for the OP, please don't give any. I mean no offense. I may be getting a tad frustrated, for the sake of the OP.

    A dealer "check up" will only get you flagged. The engine of this car is modded beyond what a dealer will attempt to cover under the auspices of warranty. So, even if you take it to them, you'll pay for any service related to the engine or drivetrain. Your warranty is officially good for leaking headlights. Welcome to the club. If you want to know the health of the car, have a leak down and compression test done by a reputable tuner.
