Bye Bye STI!!!

Default Running Rich...

Ok,
I'm using a 100% atmoshpere BOV, and it's causing my car to run rich(duh). Is there ANY way to adjust it so it's not running rich without just getting another stock BOV???? I LOVE the sound, and want to keep it, but it's not worth running rich all the time. I have a TXS unichip too, and I'm not sure if that can be adjusted for fuel mixture... Would a Apexi-SAFC work???

carbon build-up, more frequent backfires, black tailpipe, less performance...

I think that the first generation of non-code guys are starting to get comfortable with our UTECs. I have a feeling that our questions are going to be very similar.

I think that what we will need to do is drop the numbers on our Fuel map at certain load points.

I am getting overduty on my injectors at high rpms, but running rich pretty much throughout my 1/4 run.

So far, I've just taken a .1 out across the board from 5000-7250 rpms.

no, keep it it you like the sound.
You only go rich when you shift, of the when you can hear the BOV doing it's noise thing. Don't sweat it.

Huh? Dude, put the needle down.

Anyhow, what makes you say it's your BOV? From what I've picked up on from here and talking to my pardners, the car runs rich by default, and a BOV doesn't really add or subtract from performance. (Make sure and look left at that big 'Newbie' under my screenname, though).

It would seem to me that there are 2 options for you: look into a higher octane gas, or get your unichip remapped.

Just my opinion.
