Default ECUTECk

The good, I am tuned on about 8lbs, I made 405hp and 323tq on a mustang dyno.

The bad, I still have an air leak I need to find; when the revs start going higher up in the afr is going up and down and not staying steady.

The ugly, I went to a local tuner East Coast Swapper that was bad, (pm for more info Iím not here to trash anyone; or look at my google review), and I let them hold my car for about six weeks and got no tune....

So I made the switch to ECUTECk, and I have to say with the new tune the car seems to be running smoother and is a little more responsive. I had John Visconti tune it, and I have to say he did a good job. He got the car tuned and let me know I had a leak and let me know where to start looking. John is also sending my files over too ECUTECK and talking to Sasa. While the numbers were a little disappointing I am happy that I found a tuner that I could trust and work with to get the car were it needs to be. Now for the air leak; John recommend to start around the downstream 02. I called my installer at Exccelrate Performance and will be dropping off the car next Friday to get the leak fixed. Any advice is always welcome! I will put the dyno chart up in a day or two.

8 lbs, is this the Stillen kit as well?

If so, I'm right about where you are at with Ecutek on that kit.

Nice man about right I was at 412 and 320 in the stock kit, The vacum leak did you check all the post SC piping sounds like something is loose, Check the BPV fittings also,

You do have the MAF shield installed correct?
