Question Running Rich

My car has been turboed for about 9 months and 7,000 miles and everything seemed fine except for a minor oil leak on the oil return line. I took it to a shop which my family has been taking all our cars to to have them look at and fix the oil leak and also do a major service. I now realize the major service was a bad idea because god knows what they did.

My car was running fine when i took it to them (minus the burning oil that leaked onto the headers) but now it's running like crap.

I'm running a Ludespeed Stage III with a Link @ 4.5psi.
Some EGT's i recall are:
700* F @ 40 mph
650* F @ 50 mph
525* F @ 70 mph
All temps are in 4th gear btw.

I have a few ideas on what could be causing but I am not so certain.

1) Stock spec spark plugs from the major service (as opposed to what were there when i delivered it - NGK7's i believe)
2) dead 02 sensor (i don't actually know what would happen here)
3) Faulty Link - i have had problems retaining fuel/timing maps with my Link when trying to data log and tune, but never from just driving.
4) combination of all 3

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'd get a list of what they did to the car, but they could have changed it back to the stock heat range plugs for the car. This seems the most likely culprit. Also, what version of PcLink are you using? I've had problems with the software retaining my changes and causing my car to knock while still NA.

BTW, I'm in Newark, do you ever go to any of the local meets?

I dont know where your egt probe is located but i idle between 600-700 degrees farenheit and would probably be close to 1100-1200 at 70mph in 4th gear.
