    checked that, you can see them moving when revving at idle. but again, certainly an option - i haven't done a delete kit or anything.

    Don't give up, you will find it. Also, you need a 170 degree T-stat. As soon as I can get to another computer here at work that has Excel on it, I will post a log so you can compare.

    Correction: MAF is pegged at 86.6 Lb/min, not 96. And this is a mile above sea level where breathing is hard to do.

    T-stat is that important? Not saying it isn't...just curious. Hindsight being 20/20 I should have went with a beefcake special as opposed to having to purchase so much stuff afterwards just to sort out issues.

    Yes it is, especially in that hot Illinois summer weather. With more air, more fuel, and more pressure comes more heat. Additional heat can contribute to timing being pulled for a variety of reasons. What injectors and Fuel delivery are you using?

    I'll try and double check the MAF orientation tonight. Per the Procharger instructions you can't install it backwards so I don't believe that to be the issue...but who knows I'm sure stranger things have happened.

    I don't disagree with all of that - but it's been very mild in terns of heat this spring. I think most of my logs I've made have been done in like 60's or less. Is a PP (or any other brand) radiator upgrade a requirement?

    Yeah I don't think the t-stat has anything to do with your current issue, just something I noticed in your log. It is possible to install the MAF sensor upside down, but I wouldn't think you would have been able to put the bolts in.

    Yeah their instructions specifically say you won't be able to screw the maf down if it's inserted incorrectly.

    Also, your "tuner" should have noticed all of these details. Yet another reason to use one of the reputable companies. All of the fancy parts and hardware in the world won't mean squat if your tune isn't dialed in. The tune is without question the most important piece of the puzzle. Now that you have an Nguage, get in touch with Lund and they will get you squared away.

    Yeah, I thought Procharger would have had these dialed in for the most part and I originally wanted to pick up the Charter warranty which is only available with tuning from PC...long story short the warranty didn't happen but I still wanted to work with them for tuning since I already paid for it. But you're right it might be time. Does Lund tune on the HPTuners nGauge? I'm contemplating between Lund, PBD, or finding somebody local. This internet stuff emailing back and forth is a pain because I only have time in the evenings to do logs so I basically get 1 revision a day at most...that's primarily why I'm contacting a couple local shops to get their thoughts and then the car would also get put on a dyno and I can see something measurable.

    Lund PBD, or AED. DO NOT find a local tuner. Very few have a clue around the coyote, especially with boost. Those 3 while mail order specialize in the coyote and tune them all day everyday.

    Lund has a unique ngauge, not the hpt version.
