a/f ratio

just wondering what you guy's rekon is the best a/f ratio for high load? have got low to mid load a/f at ~14.5, with closed loop holding at 14.75, at the moment at high load it is at 10.0:1, i beleive i can get some more pwr from bringing this ratio to a more stoich condition, but still want to be on the safe side.

Re: a/f ratio

yeah i reckon! 10:1 is disgustingly rich! i would aim for anywhere between 12.8 to 13.2:1 for a N/A application...

i have noticed that my car is running very rich as well atm, and i cant seem to lean it out - in the utilities section i have been selecting 'lean entire curve 5% (or more)" and clicking "process" to try make it leaner...its not doing much.

i have also been setting the injector size larger too, in the hope the computer will reduce the pulsewidths, but no luck there either...is there anything else you can change to run it leaner at idle and cruise???

Re: a/f ratio

When I played around with fuel pressures I found 12.5-13 gave the best results on mine.

Re: a/f ratio

yeah i'm thinking around maybe mid 13's, but just want to get an ide from ppl, my light/cruising ratios are spot on, just wasn't sure about WOT/high load.
