Why Is My Boost Stupid

Recommended Posts

So my rica chip took a vacation but nothing was changed on it (long story) finally got it back in the car with an ebc and bov. So its got some nasty torque down low, but when i push up to 18psi, the afr's are in the 11-12:1 range, and it seems to be pulling timing or something, if i turn down the boost to a modest 16 i dont get the problems. This is a 19t, 18psi rica remap for the 19t and blue injectors.

Sounds like the good old plug problem.

.23 works, but .25 should work as well, if you are getting blowout or misfiring at .25 gap, id look into your ignition system to see if there is anything worn out that needs changing, theres 850's making tons more power than you are, with stock ignition and .25 gap.

Well i do :)

you obviously didn't get the joke. it's .025 not .25. .25" is one hell of a gap for a spark plug.
