Assuming you haven't been banned by the time I hit the "Submit" button, you're not going to have much luck running 460cc injectors on an eManage (non-Ultimate).

Thank you, come again.

why not...on a safc2 that my friend has he can turn it down exactly half and thats what he did...we have the same setup but i though emanage was better so i opted for the emanage vs the safc2....just wondering

little update.....put the bigger injectors in....runs pretty decent now....on the narrowband 02 sensor it says its in the middle but at 11 pounds it shoots into lean......if i adjust the airflow screws on the front of the emanage to the - side will it make it run rich enough or do those barley affect it...cause it seems fine at idle up to about 3 grand then it starts going into the red....still no wideband yet ):

Best thread title ever
hondelk first off ditch the narrow band it is absolutely useless for tunning in boost and will most likely cost you a motor if you trust it to much. It just simply isn't accurate enough for what you want and need. I would try to adjust your boosted rpm levels via the emanange i if you need the support tool to do that or not, but i would definatley do it. IT is pretty weird for you to be running lean with 460's and stock ecu. By all acounts you should be running rich everywhere. My 460's where good for 13-14 psi and several others have taken theres further than that. Have you checked your Fuel pressure? If it is to low or the pump is obstructed then the system will go lean under laod. GL man i hope some of this helps you.

you can tell the emanage what rpm it boosts at?.....i have never seen a setting for that......and i do have a support tool and a laptop in the car 24/7
and i am now thinkin its runnin rich cause i put a full exhaust on it and its running worse sputtering more...i just really really need a nexus adaptor..i got my autometer nexus wideband 02 sensor and found out you have to buy a special adaptor for any nexus gauge
