Righto folks this is it.

The car is running lean as anything. Good thing I never thrash the car or rev it past 3 grand.
204 rwhp which is what I was guessing.

Because it was so lean the MCE didn't want to run it again for fear of blowing my car up. He fidled with it and the MAF is working fine cause he was blocking it off with his hand and the AF went down. Then he got some tape and blocked off about 80% of my K&N filter with it to reduce the amount of air getting in. Then with a cringe he ran her again on the dyno.

We got 240rwhp but still lean. It wasn't printed out as he said it would be an inconsistent result so the 204 is what was printed.

Basically we all know it can't run like that so I'm getting a tune done next Friday to sort it out. I'll be getting the GT MAF on and the 24Lb injectors fitted and then switch chip eliminator tuned.

Rather pay the $1500 tuning now than the $6 grand new engine later. Can't afford it but it has to be done.
