    A friend of mine just drove it and told me I'm running 15-16psi boost. He also said it's running lean under hard acceleration. Looks like I can't floor it until I get tuned...

    sounds about right, with the mods you have in there I could easily see you hitting 20-25 psi with a proper tune. I am running close to 20 psi on an etune just full exhaust and a bov...

    Wow 20psi? These motors can handle that much boost?
    Under hard acceleration the air fuel ratio reads 11-12, and under regular driving it reads 14-15. He told me that if it runs lean too much the internals could melt?

    Whats an etune?

    Is there a tune setup where I could switch from, lets say race mode to drive mode and vice versa? Because I dont want to drive 50+ miles each time I want to tune it differently..

    Also, does anyone know how I can take a look at the injectors? I'll try to take some pics of some of the parts I don't really know what it's for and maybe some of the members can tell me what it is..

    So it has a wideband O2 gauge on it?

    If you are running lean, yes, you could melt pistons. AFRs, if it is in fact a true Wideband, actually look ok (you want to be in the mid to upper 11s when WOT. When cruising, 14s are good.

    E-Tune is an email tune. Work with a tuner, they send you revisions via email and you load them on your car using ECU Flash and a Tactrix cable. Run some logs, send the tune back so the tuner can fine tune any issues he sees in the logs.

    No need to "switch" tunes from race mode to drive mode. It's called using your right foot

    Thanks Mickie. Dunno what a wide band gauge is.. It's an AEM afr gauge..
    Didn't know that email tuning was available. That's awesome. Gotta look into that.

    i've heard that the AEM afr gauge was inaccurate sometimes and i was recommended Innovate for about the same price. can anyone confirm?
