Are you saying that at higher boost level your car feels slower then lower boost level? If so it could be either shitty fuel tune at higher boost or timming is way too low at higher boost.

no its been running at 20 for a while but ive moved the screw on the mass air flow from closed down to the right to more to the left. the car doesnt stall now but the boost doesnt seem as powerful. ill have to check the fuel map tomorrow and reset it back to chris's tune then set the air flow back. maybe its just me who knows.

Get tunerstudio or megatune, set your target table, data log, drive around trying to hit as many cells as possible, ve analyze, load new fuel table, rinse and repeat. After a few hours your fuel will be dialed in pretty well. Once your fuel is set, then you can adjust your spark carefully. When your at the dyno you can dial your spark in a little better when you can see hp changes with your adjustments....Below are a few example spark tables so you compare what you have loaded now...

Yea afr...this was mine back in april. If I recall, I changed it from 11.8 to 11.5 up top just to be on the safe side.....you could probably even shoot for 11.3, which seems to be what most guys (Sav, Hustler, Snowboarder...) on here shoot for from what I have read. They all have significant dyno tuning time and have found 11.3 to be ideal, but take it for what it is, a good starting point....

i dont think its a mass air flow so i used the wrong words there. all i know is it has a flat head screw under a rubber plug and its connected to the intake manifold. now granted this makes me sound like a total noob, but ive mostly driven domestics and this is really my first time doing anything other than oil changes on an import.

i adjusted the throttle a little. it starts better but not like a stock car, which is understandable. a car with this much work done to it isnt going to be perfect.
