      You said it yourself man. Idling at 10inhg is going to cause all kinda of problems. Fix that vac leak. Make sure to check behind check valves if you do a pressure test, because those places won't...

      You lost me lol

      I understand how the lambda requests work, and how to set my requested lambda to where I want it, and when I want it. I set full load to .82 and enrichment to .85 and found where...
