Default Boost blow out problems.

I'm so pissed off. I turned my boost up and everytime I hit 9psi, it falls on its nose like someone is tapping a kill switch.
I had ngk something 6 plugs.
Now I have ngk something 7. They said they were colder

Anyway, I guess it is spark blow out. Corkey said set them from .28 to .35. I set it at .28.
AFR's are way rich like 10.
Do you think my injectors are over doing it. And locking up. I doubt that would be every injector at the same time.

I just put in a 323 pcv valve. Are all the 323 pcv valves the same. The dip waud at oreiliys said he couldn't find a turbo one. So I just bought it and installed it.

I'm running the pnp spark map. And the stupid tabs keep graying out and not coming back.


I would like to have this thing screaming. Any Ideas

New BRK7's gapped at .020". Datalog and run it through MLV and get the AFR's closer to 11-12. 10 is stupid rich.

Yea, working on the afr's in boost.
But I have cruise in pretty good. I'm getting in the 30's mpg now. But it is crazy rich in boost.


I haven't hooked up my ebc yet. I plan on that this weekend. It acted like a rev limiter but more spaced out.
I'll check for over boost.

I thought you had to have ebc for that. But though wrong, Thanks
