Default Idle too rich... need a map...

Everything is installed and the car runs (once synced..) but I keep fouling out the plugs because my idle is crazy rich. I haven't driven it yet. Does anyone have a map I can look at?

1.6, 460cc rx7 injectors, 3.5 AEM map, GM ait, uego.

Thanks!

Since you have the wideband, you should easily be able to just start leaning it out. My map is only for 220CC injectors, so won't help really.

When I lean it out, it idles poorly and too low. When it richens it idles perfectly smooth but fouls the plugs, so the next time I start it, it misses badly.

make sure you're adjusting the fuel cells all around the idle position. Here is my friends fuel map with RC 370CC injectors, and GM 3 bar, should give you a general idea:

Which program are you using (AEM Pro or Tuner)?

AEM Pro, sir. I just got it so it should be the latest.

The easiest one to use for those of us without a lot of tuning knowledge is the Tuner. I asked because I thought the map posted by dustin was in pulse widths. If you're using Pro, highlight one of the cells, click the right button of the mouse and change it from "raw" to "pulse widths", then compare the numbers between your map and the ones in the fuel map he posted.

I have assumed that he's running an AEM since he posted in the "AEM" section and he's been in this board for quite some time. Plus, he also answered he's using the AEM PRO program

Amen to that but I don't like the latest version of Tuner as much as I liked the previous one. For some reason, with this latest version I can't compare all the settings of a calibration with another one as I could with the previous version.
