Replaced the wbo2 sensor, same gauge/controller and it works fine now.

that's how the sensor on my LC1 failed. I kept adding fuel, to the point it would backfire if I stepped on the gas from so much fuel being dumped in.

Why dont you just change the Req Fuel by a few points and see if it changes?

OK, after 2 controllers, 2 sensors, 4 power sources, and 4 ground sources, I have determined that it was infact the tune just I like told you guys!

I am surprised that the car ran as well as it did with that lean of a tune. I thought the modest reduction in power was attributable to an overly conservative base ignition tune. Now with far better AFRs, the car is a little smoother and faster. I am also surprised that the mspnp9697 base tune was so lean out of the box.

I did not hear any noticable knock, and I did not drive the car very hard, but what do you figure the chances of me detonating with AFRs about 17+ in an NA set up? Hope I did not damage the motor.

So Curly and Nitrodann, if you are ever in Vancouver, Canada, I will take you for a beer at the fountainhead pub on Davie.
