Yes DRL s done. Have to install front left headlight so it's working and the idle control valve. I'll do that first thing in the morning as I'm traveling today and won't be back till late tonight

I could also be the jumber box on the driverside so check that first and I might if all Thai fails send in the aem and Humber box to see if HPF can duplicate my problem. They have been very supportive in helping me solve my problem. I'm the one who's a way a lot working so have not been arround to work on it

I shut the car off let it sit. I restart it then for about 25 seconds afr is at 14 which is good. Then it creeps down to 11. Which is rich. This is after car is warm

Pulled a plug to take a look. Lots of carbon so too much gas for sure. I also noticed that one of my
Coils was stock and the rest were Okada as they were suppose to be. I'm finding out things every day in this car that r Micky mouse. I just am doing the headlight now and some broken wires with black tape were
Evident. I'm off to get a soldering iron to fix that.

Found out the source of the oil leak. Seems the rubber seal in the oil cap is toast. The oil ended up leaking under the cover and accumulated and leaked down onto the turbo manifold. Thats a relief as I thought I was going to have to do the value cover gasket again.

14 is where you should be at idle when warm...i think...I know mine sits around there when cruising but I can't exactly remember right now...plugs def looks like its running pig rich. Has anyone given you the HPF bat line?

Sucks to hear that ... I'm surprised the peeps at HPF didn't notice that when they were inspecting your car ... What sort of inspection did they do when you send it in?

They did a full turbo kit inspection. Ran it in the dyno etc
They found a lot of stuff. Te list was over a page
Long. They saw a afr problem initially but it seems
Not to repeat it self. Also when the car came in to HPF it was running rough but that went away when they put in the proper plugs. The owner had the wrong ones in for some reason. I drove the car for few hundred miles and then the problem started. So I do t see HPF being to blame. There r two car events this weekend as I'm frustrated I have leave My car parked. I'm also worried about the inspection as the car reaks of fuel
