    I understand what your saying but I can't afford it. And it's my everyday car I have kids I need it my tuner has a dash board so I can watch the change happen while I adjust I assume it is a latency (dwell time issue) I asume I will see it richen up at that rpm and throttle poss.right I have no choice to do this myself.and it sucks

    Buy VAG-Com($10) cable and money saved for a professional tune OS tune.

    I'm being dead serious. Blobeyes can be easily flashed with a cheap modified VAG-com cable. Theres a huge thread on NASIOC.
    Heres a decent link
    All I did was jump pin 16 to 11 for the 12V.

    .... I don't understand this logic ever. You can't afford it but you are about to not be able to afford a HUGE bill once your motor blows.

    The fact that you didn't take notice of 17-18:1 AFRs tell me you're not ready to self-tune the car, especially at this level. You can't afford ~$300 for an email tune, but you're talking thousands and weeks of downtime if the car blows up, which in its current state is a good possibility. Do as you wish, but I would not recommend DIY in this case.

    I agree I would not recommend this to anyone without exp. However I did pay akuma motorsports $300 for a tune he said I had to get my boost leak fixed and I did this smoke test to 20# sent them another data log and now they will not respond to me after calling and emailing what a joke. I did notice the leanMixture but it is not constant only when I give allot of throttle it is right at 14.3-14.7 at cruise. I know I should not drive it at 16+ if it is there for longer than a sec or s.i can also get to cruise without it going lean. It is just in one spot I have yet to adjust finely I am going off the paper work from the injector place that m ade them.they need to be fine tweaked.

    Honestly after looking at your log, I wouldn't want my name attached to the tune. You are about to cause some serious damage. Your AFR is way tooo lean.

    ok now that i adjusted my tip in enrichment, my a/f correct is a little off maybe i over corrected for it i will change back slightly to see if it cures it.. So it looks like i fixed the lean condition at
    faster throttle change,now it goes down to 13ish rather than up to 15-18 it does go lean but that is at
    throttle pos.( 0 ) for a split sec that looks normal to me. check it out and give me some feed back.

    You are missing the point. The stock O2 sensor cannot be used to monitor proper AFRs.
