DO NOT FUG WITH THE A/F UNLESS YOU ARE ON A DYNO! It's a good way to grenade an engine. Every car is different even with identical setups.

I would stick to what ever boost level they recommend. Also make sure you get a dyno tune. A/F between 11.0-12.0 is fine, i think mine is 11.5-11.7 wot. Get a Digital a/f gauge to keep an eye on
