Agreed. I had sent Brent an email and he kinda thought the same thing. This is why I want a dyno tune soon!

If the MAF housing has any variation at all you will see the cars either richer or leaner than others. So if the MAF is slightly larger than original specifications you will see the A/F go lean.

I'm with 65sohc. It looks like it gets to 14:1 on the second run. I'd be alarmed about that.

This is true, 14:1 is good for Idle, but not for making power at WOT

14:1 at WOT can make engine go boom if it's run that way for a long time.

If you look close the scales are diferent for the hp & tq so if you look at 5252rpm it is making about 260 HP & TQ @ 5252.
