My AEM wideband Reading....

Hey everyone, i installed my Wideband over the weekend. now that its running, im running about low 13's to high 13's..... is this a safe spot?? right now my procharger isn't fully installed, so its just a NA set-up. should i be adding more fuel? and if i need to do that, can i control it with my xcal3?

-To test out after altering the WOT air/fuel adjustments, can i cruise with the car, going the speed limit and figure it out from those reading, or will i have to WOT it?



thank you,
BUNNA - TOE

^ agreed, some of the questions you asked qualify you for the "not quite yet ready to tune" category

That said yes you are a bit lean, high 12's would be better or low 13's if you like to live life on the edge (but on the dyno you wont see a difference from 12.8-13.2)

Good one that covers the basics and also a few things specific to EEC-V, but definitely not a "how-to" tuning manual:

13 at idle, part throttle or wot?

At idle and part throttle that is a bit rich. At wot that is too lean.

To answer your question, the wot fuel adjustments on the x3 will make fueling changes only to wot. So, part throttle and idle would not be affected at all. If you made changes to that adjustment you would have to go wide open to test. It's not really something you need to do right now.
