JRSC/bbk - Installation problem

Well, I had my local tuner shop (livernois motorsports) install my supercharger for me. The installation was mint but when the computer program was sent to Ford Racing and received back, the installer told me the tune was running very lean. The installer told me the car ran five minutes straight on 2krpm and didn't drop. Also, when you accelerate a bit, it has a hanging rev for three, four seconds then drops.

The installer is sending the computer back to Ford Racing tomorrow but is this a common problem or what might you think the issue is? We think Ford Racing put the wrong tune on it. Also, the new serpentine belt I received with the bbk apparently didn't fit as well as the stock belt so the stock belt is being used. Do you think this could throw a problem at us?

Thank you.

if the belt is routed right there is not way they can use stock belt with the sc. they are doing that rong. the BBK belt should be 104.5".

tell them to check for vacuum leaks.
