So, after our FF cruise i was told my focus was blowing black smoke at WOT. So on the way home i was testing it and the AFR was pegged at 10.0 the whole time i was at WOT under load and out of it. Shortly after, my Check Engine light came on, but no 'Trouble Codes' were being thrown. Im working on getting the data logs off my predator to send to you but was wondering if you had any suggestions in the mean time.

we're in the FP thread :)
but yeah right now the predator - computer link is being smarter than i am... its coming as soon as i figure it out.
what logs would you need to see theres like a list of 10 of them. I had the WOT test saved... what other ones would you need?

Dont need logs if it is just an AF issue , the tune does not change , have you tryed cleaning your MAF as they get dirty they can go richer on the fuel ,check you iat and ect and make sure there still working right , then get back to me , black smoke is a good thing a solid 10.0 is a little rich , I set them to about 10.5 to 10.6

Tom is right try cleaning your MAF sensor my powerworks was running extremely rich blackening the plugs and it was just a super dirty MAF sensor.
