This is a very likely reason, unless your Enthalpy tune can somehow account for the sudden loss in air intake...which I doubt.

What is your exhaust situation or chance of exhaust leaks around the O2 area?

Definitely sure. I had Enthalpy double-check. Enthalpy still thinks it's likely a wideband issue due to the fact that the engine seems to be running fine. Also just found out from them that due to the ROM they use, they block any consult program from seeing the o2 signal, which is why mine is readin...

I actually think your wideband is operating correctly. Is your base fuel pressure 43.5 without the vacuum line installed? Yup - was actually just down there setting my fuel pressure again. It's at 43.5 without vacuum, but I did notice just now that when I connect vacuum again, it only drops to 38 o...

I misspoke regarding the 14.7 reading without the engine on. It reads 14.7 for about 10 seconds and then climbs off the charts (18.5). Thus, I'm thinking the gauge isn't reading incorrectly. As for a fuel injector o-ring leak, I've pretty much ruled that out given that I pass a boost leak test with ...

Are those driving or idle afr's? You could try raising the fuel pressure 5# and see if you afr's drop a little bit. I don't know what wide band you have but some of them you can calibrate. My wideband will read "air" if the engine is off but ignition is on. Those are idle afr's. Throttle drops the ...

Fresh ka-t running lean...o2 not reading?

My wideband is reading 16.9ish at cold idle and 18+ (off the gauge) once it warms up. Consult is showing great signals for everything except the o2 sensor, which is steady at 0v. I have tried a couple new o2 sensors and have double-checked the harness wiring, which has beautiful continuity. Is it li...

Its just a standalone garage at a friends house.

Yes. If the throttle body is fully closed and no air could get into the engine how would it run at idle? When you adjust the iacv it raises and lowers your rpm because it controls the amount of air that gets in there. Word. Thought there might have been a chance the valve was closed unless it was g...

Without blocking anything the air shouldnt go anywhere unless you have leaks, big cams or cam timing issues It all goes into the motor so even if the IACV is open it doesnt matter as long as you test from the turbo intake Is the 'air regulator' emissions?

IACV and air regulator never fully closed?

Hopefully an absurd question with a simple answer (that I can't find on any forum or figure out myself). My IACV and air regulator are open, so I can't do a proper boost leak test, as all the air just flows into the intake manifold. How do I close them so that I can boost leak test? I'm assuming it'...

Hi from a first time ka-t guy from SF. My weapon of choice is a 95 240. I stick primarily to autocross, but will eventually be tracking the car a bit as well. Thanks for keeping this community going - it has answered countless questions thus far! Happy to be a part of it! http://i1245.photobucket.co...
