      Nah no Standalone the UM program is good for 28-30psi before my Meth kit when I install it. So I'm extremely happy with it thus far @ 14psi.

      I love using the books but color wiring on the iPad is sooo much better. That torque wrench is tried & true. I had that Snap-on digital one, sold it, went back to set it and forget it i.e. just a click. As opposed to a beep and vibrate and being .3 or .7 off from the last bolt.

      ECU issues. Got it corrected. Back to the animal it is . Big Shout out the team @ http://www.aptuning.com/ Ryan & Steve especially for staying late with me, sharing knowledge back and forth with my cousin and I, a tour of the facility and projects they got going on. The brakes they recommended & sold me are on point!!!!

      Where's the FPR set at & what's the gap on the plugs? I had a similar problem & it ended up being a boost leak. My vac was fine @ idle when reading the boost gauge but my a/f's were in the 17-18 range.

      40 psi with vac plugs gapped @ .28 nothing changed with the set up except the ECU. It's driving fine pulling hard 13-14psi boost 11.4AFR. It's just around light to light stuff I started to notice it, Idling at light AFR 14.6-15.2, ease off the clutch on to the gas drops to 13.8 as I lightly lean into it 1200-1450 rpms it jumps to 17.2 AFR??? And then comes back to normal

      I'll bet you a million dollars its the vac line going to the FPR. Had that problem to & it was the same exact symptoms. The rad fan blades cut the hose causing the FP not to rise with the boost.

      I'm gonna check it, but the vacuum is working cause when I rev it under the hood or disconnect it there is movement on the gauge..

      Sometimes there's only a small slit in the line and the gauge will still work, but it wont be correct.
