Now just get a nice 11.5:1 and make sweet, sweet torque. If you were local I'd help street tune it, it's so SO much easier when you can tune while someone else drives.

Your oil needs to be changed if you have run 9 to 1. It is likely full of fuel.

I wouldnt be so quick to say that. I discovered my AEM has 0.2AFR worth of ground offset on it. So what I thought was rich but not bad enough to bother fixing afr turned out to be something below the scale of what the AEM can read, to the point where it was putting the fire out and causing misfires. I fixed that in toledo and all of a sudden the car was much faster and I blew up 2nd gear with like 12psi on the efr. Blackstone results showed no gas in that oil.

AEM minimum reading is 10:1. But it was so rich it was causing the spark to blow out, so that was probably something south of 8:1. I took like .8ms out of the fuel in boost and it was back to where I wanted it to be.
