Default too rich

yesterday I got my 2000 ssei dyneod I have the intense stage one setup. I was expecting atlease 230whp. I was disappointed I only got 212whp. One thing I saw was that my air ratio was only 10.6 thats way to rich what can I do to get to 12.5

youre still runnig the stock PCM? if so well you need to invest in a aftermarket PCM and get it tuned by intense on the dynoo for best results that should take care of your problem for the most part

I would say the PCM is doing it. Maybe the PCM is expecting some mods you don't have?

i didnt see that the first time about the intense PCM you have i also noticed you have 22' wheels thats taking the power thats usually gained form your mods out the window so dont expect high HP numbers with the 22'* without doing more mods

They won't affect A/F, so I ignored them.

I agree your large wheels are really hurting the amount of power you are putting down. If you are performance minded with your Bonne putting wheels that size on there is one of the worst things you can do for performance.

I remember reading awhile back on a programable tuner does anyone know about that. I expected my numbers to be affected by the wheels but 212whp really suck. Another thing that doesn't make sense is that from a 40mph role I run right beside my friends 2007 stock mustang gt. 212whp wont do that.

While the statement about the wheels may be true, let'* get back on topic about the AF ratio.

What did you measure it with?
