Id have to see what my Cold start idle is but I think its 12.5-13.0 My crusing is 14's on the highway, or any gear with a constant speed so running 13 just crusing is prolly where the plugs are fouling up quick

Totally agree! Maybe Lawrence has 500mi or less

Marcus,

Not sure if this a good idea or not but mybe is a really nice solution for the loud exhaust. If you are getting a new tune from ProEFI maybe you should consider this.....



I don't know if there would be any better flow on the regular HPF STG3 exhaust system versus a 4" cut out but all you have to do is to open before you start getting on the car.

Well the flow might be a bit better with the cut out , since it is goin 4 inch all the way from begining to exit , not dividin the exhaust flow at all

Now that I have been watching my a/f's since I got my car back from Hpf, it is between 13.7-14.2 at idle.

Seriously? You are wondering why your plugs are showing rich signs full of carbon when you run 12:1 air fuel at idle whenn teh car is designed to idle and run at 14.7:1? Fix your tune.

I realized the issue a while ago, the tune is in the process of being fixed.
