    You are losing power by running that rich. I tell you this you wont blow your motor up. Try getting your air fuel to 11.5 to 11.9 that is pretty safe.

    Over here in NJ there are two of us that run B-chargers with the Riva ecu. We run 50 lb injectors! Why on earth would you think 55's are going to help you? You need to run 50's; especially in the warmer weather. If you're running 13 lbs of boost and 8500+ rpm, then 55's might be "safer" in the cold. We all run a/f meters and have checked it over and over. Wot with 50's and a b @ 8550 gives 12.1 to 12.5 afr. My guess is the a/f # you got was not accurate. Just my .02.

    I am now running a B-Kit with the fuel controller and 50`s stock ECU

    Jerry suggested the 55`s for a B-kit and the Riva ECU I will run it first with the 50`s and see what numbers I get

    is there anyone that is going to the bug that would be willing to adjust my fuel controller while I am there I would not mind paying . I would like to get my numbers (air/fuel) back up

    Scott, 55's in the winter (cooler) months. 50's work just great in this heat.

    the most important job for you is to make sure we have plenty of crawfish
