s***** gude kit

I messed up and bought the gude kit an now of course it doesnt run right i am running way to rich and my car doesnt idle it just floods out and wanted tosee if anyone had any anwsers to my problem because gude doesnt and doesnt know what there talking about. I was wondering if an msd would work or should ichip it or send the mass air flow out to get reprogrammed and if so does anyone no where to send it. Thanks from another person gude screwed over.

Your running rich? What are you doing for tuning? No, MSD will not work properly.

There isn't really a good way for you to tune your car yourself, with no prior tuning knowledge.

My advice would be to find an SCT dealer in your area and go to them.

At least you can't say we haven't warned you guys.

Specially FocalTech with his hilarious dumpster signature.

If you have no tuning at all (stock MAF, injectors, no chip, etc.) the idle should be perfect unless you are getting turbulent air flow through the MAF - due most likely to a gauze air filter clamped on to the end of the OEM MAF instead of the OEM airbox. Or if you have a BOV venting metered air.

That said, a blown engine is imminent if you run too much boost with no tuning.

Go to a professional shop!.

Tuning is by far an amateur thing.
