Afr reading

Postby jaydog82 » Tue Apr 17, 2012 12:48 pm

I just finished rebuilding mt st165, I finally got my prosport wideband installed and I am trying to understand my afr readings. I have q jdm engine, stock ct26 running 15 psi, New everything on the motor prosport boost gauge, walbro 255lph fuel pump, straight intake and a 3" Aussie Dp. When I'm cruzing it reads around 14.7 under max boost around 10.0 and when I let off to slow down its reading 20.0. I did have some problems with my last maf, maybe I need to adjust the new one.

Off throttle does cause this, 14.7 isnt bad I like a 14.5 idle, but when do you see 10.0? That's a bit rich at certain areas on the throttle map

it seems ok, but like the OutToWinPAHC said 10:1 is a bit at the rich side.
no problem to run it, but your car will be faster if you can adjust it to the 11:1 - 11.5:1 mark with a SAFC or another simple piggyback :)

Ya that's what I was thinking, what about adjusting the maf? I read that you can lean it out by adjusting the spring inside the maf.

yes of course you can :) but i wouldn't touch the maf.
i myself use SAFC too :) very simple and helpful unit when you can use it.
but watch out; do not set it more lean than %10
only small touches :)

i think 15-16psi is enough for a stock ct26 :) more than 18psi will increase hot air like hair dryer.
