I mean i'm not leaking or burning a drop of oil, I was very easy and watch the wideband until I was used to it.

I should have been a little more easy on it without knowing what was going on, but I felt some security watching the A/F while under boost. I find no reason to get into this motor man, just being one hundred percent honest.

Really I only need a ever so minor tune, I have a minor pig rich spot while under boost at 15 psi and am only hitting a 75% duty cycle. This isn't my first rodeo, I have grown up tinkering with engines and fast cars. I actually just did a complete rebuild on my last car, installed JE's FSR pistons(8.5:1), eagle rods, 1000cc rc injectors and a stage 3 ported head all powered by a hahn super 16g. I put down 233hp at 6psi, we took it all the way up 20 psi ended up with 378hp on a motor that pushed over a 100hp stock.

If I felt there where a problem with my engine or any other components I fix it asap. With a solid compression test, normal leakdown test, and no burning or leaking oil I am very confident and satisfied. Yea I should probably tear down my engine, i'm not going to until I do a head gasket.

Sorry to sound like a jerk, just a lil fed up. Seems like this forum is eat or be eaten.

Its not the AFRs that should be your problem, (I think this is the general consensus) its that if you are pushing 300HP on the stock bottom end, it WILL fail. Pulling the engine to inspect the parts may be a good idea, so that you don't have to pull the engine later to replace parts.

I think that you will find that there is genuine, great advice available on this forum, but the members do like to poke fun at everyone (even the "vets" poke fun at each other, and its all in good fun)

I also think that if you calm down, find out what sort of engine management/injectors/etc that you have, this advice will be more readily available to you, and they might just take you seriously.

he has a shitty fic

On another note, OP I am impressed at the progress your underhood has made. It doesn't look like a mound of bird crap anymore (or less so). Good for you. Keep going in that direction and finish cleaning it up and making it proper.

I just read the latest in this trainwreck of a thread. OP, in another thread you told me you were running megasquirt, and I pointed out a picture of your engine bay and that you were running a MAF. Now you are running a FIC? Which one is it?

It sounds like I was right after-all..
