NB4 popped motor.

Well, technically I was in when I pointed out the blatant ******* stupidity of NOT running a proper EMS, but what can you do

no its running way leaner than that under boost cant wait to blow it up.(joke)no load whole rpm range is in stoich (so the ecm is controlling injectors enough for normal driving not just under boost)
and compared to the jackson racing supercharged cars we built this is fast at only 7 psi
will run it more boost(10 psi or so) once i go through it more(so i can cook the new clutch that was put in it)

get it running a lil richer, and you should be good. At 7psi it cant be making more then like 175hp so i highly doubt its insane fast, then again i guess fast or not fast is a perspective.

thats a big sweep

I'd feel safe running 12.5 -12.7:1 AFR at 7psi.

Seriously? Everywhere i've seen people seem to be saying sub 12s for anything in boost.

FM Hydra Base map is 12:1 - they're likely a little conservative.

Max power has been proven by sav on the dyno to be richer than 12.5. Unless I remember incorrectly.

There is a big difference in what you can get away with at 7psi vs. 14psi vs. 21 psi vs. 28 psi. It's a compromise when you start to get into higher ranges. They might actually make more power at 12.5 but resist detonation better at 11.2.

I'm pretty sure you don't need that much.

Ive seen some Honda forums where tuners are tuning to the number of 12.6s @ 22psi on built B series turbo cars. I wonder how they get away with suchhhh..
