What's overboost protection set at? From the jiggly psi log right at 180kpa and seeing VD set at smoothing level 5 I feel like that's likely the issue.

I looked at a log from last week at sea level and "barocor" was 99%, today's log at 1200ft elevation was at 101%, so it was actually adding fuel at ambient 96kpa vs 101kpa. I adjusted the barometric...

Yeah, we had the car transported here with a full tank of gas so fuel hasn't changed. I know I'm not at crazy elevation or anything, but I'm pretty sure that's what the difference is.

Well shit, figured it out as soon as I posted.

The vacuum line from my Aeromotive FPR shoots fuel like 10 feet when I prime the fuel pump. WTF? I have the worst luck in the world.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting something, but boost looks rock solid at 10psi. You've got some decent AFR sag, dipping into the 10s by redline. Pull fuel past 6000rpms and you'll continue to make power....
