Yea they are all very nice people there and they get plenty of experience with ms there. Just watch your shoelaces as they'll get attacked by all the little kitties there!

lol... Corky has expressed 12's being optimal and safe. He has also said in the right conditions... it's all very vague and wishy washy. I'd probably ask though and want to find out what afr targets they shoot for at each kpa.

Right now my car drops down to high 10s it feels very safe. I don't feel comfortable that high under boost. Maybe its ok but it doesn't feel right to me. Maybe I'm too running too rich but the car runs good.

11.5. Anything under 11 and you're looking at fouled sensors and spark plugs in no time.

Nope.
Once you're lower than mid 10's is when you start fouling. There are very many cars running mid-high 10's for afr for years without issue.
Actually most non-DI OEM's do this.
I'm not saying that's optimal or desired, but you know what I mean.

And this is pump gas since you can go a full point leaner with e85.

When I say high 10s I mean at peak boost at 10.9 10.8 region and most of the time I run 11s and this is all on 93 octane. I am not having any issues at all.

Haha yeah my wife and I were thinking of moving out to Arizona a while back if I got a job at ASU. I always thought if I made it out that way I would go see Mike. Have you ever been to his shop? Have you met him?

Never been. Heard some people say good things about him, but no first hand experience.
