Default Finally got car running again, really rich

Ok so i finally got my car running again after having a stupid fitting on the turbo oil feed strip.. anyways, drove it around the block then down the road and back..

What i've found is its running really really rich in boost, anywhere from 11-10 AFR's, also it bogs a little getting into boost..

I'm running i believe brain's version of al's map..

Anyways i was in megalog viewer and did the little VE analyzer thing just to see what it came up with, changed 41.4 percent of my map, all of them the cells that i regularly use..

So i guess basically my question is does the VE analyzer work to get a rough tune thats closer? because it changed it quite a bit

This is all with a LC-1 btw, with about 500 miles on it

Edit: Oh yeah, 320cc injectors as if it matters

I would input my AF targets and try outotune as well with about 5-10 miles of boosted driving and ego set for 15% i was able to get my map real close in boost and out. IT is real simple alot of others like VE analyzer but i like how you can actualy feel the changes with autotune. Also dont forget to burn and save the revisions under a new msq name until you are sure the map you made is right this way you always have a known good backup GL man

Yeah I like the autotune too.. question on that though, when you autotune and it alters your VE table, does it automatically do it so all i have to do at the end of a drive is save the msq under a different file name or do i have to import the altered map somewhere that it made?

Well you should be pushing ALT+B i think or some shortcut while you drive around in autotune so that it can continue refining your map. You really need to watch though because autotune can mess up and make you ultra lean for some reason so keep tabs on it. This is kinda why having a driver while you pay attention to the tune is nice. Make sure you turn accel enrich off while running autotune as well. After doing this some manual smoothing can help your map. You can also try to take a good long 10-20 min datalog and using megalogviewer to make all your adjustments once you get it closer.
You do have your req fuel setup for your 320s right? Just checking.
