No other mods on car (stock cat, stock exhaust). Timing backed about 1/8th inch from stock
mark I made on CAS. No idea on the actual current timing.
BEGi claims 140-160rwhp at 5-6psi. I wish I could give you the wideband readings but the damn LC1 is on the fritz
. I videoed the FP gauge during the runs and the needle vibrated a ton and FP maxed around 60-65. Clamping the return line netted 80psi per the manual. No pinging.
Any thoughts? Could it be those numbers are with aftermarket exhaust and test pipe?

Timing is everything. Jump the ground and ten in the black diagnosis box on
the drivers side. Then check your timming withe the timing light.
Tighten cas back, check the timming again to make sure it didn't move during the tightening. Then remove jumper wire so the timing advance will work.
Did you get any timing device with the kit. msd or bipes? That would change the whole balgame of where to set your timing.
Now for the LC-1. does it read normal out of boost? If not recalibrate it.
If it reads normal out of boost. Are you running lean or rich when in boost?
If too lean or rich it will peg the Wbo2 out.
Are you getting pining when it is not clamped?
Gap plugs to the right gap.
Check to make sure the afpr is hooked up right. and you have to adjust it. THE PRESSURE GAUGE (afpr will only work in boost)WILL ONLY READ HIGHER WHEN IN LOAD (BOOST). iF YOU ARE GETTING PINGING. i WOULD ADJUST THE AFPR ALL THE WAY TO RICH and back off just a little.
If you don't get this straightened out quick. It will probably blow up.
Remember ease your way into boost and if any stumble, studer, oil gauge bouncing, or pinging. LET OUT!
When in DOUBT LET OUT.
