So I cleared it to see if it came back and of course it did. But wideband is still reading good on everything. Staying around 14.7 at idle and cruise and high 10's low 11's in wot. So nothing is happening to the car because of it. Just curious as to what the cause of it is. Any input is appreciated.

Yea it sucks that it didn't work out. He never quit working with me but it needed to be finished. The guy looked over everything on the car and he told me he could tune it. Gave me a great price. The guy I go to now has been great. He does remote tuning as well all over the world. So if anybody wants his info just pm me. I'll post a link to his site when I get home. On a fun note, I dusted a turbo Jetta last night. Was pretty happy with the car. People don't realize how quick our cars are under boost. I mean 207 at the wheels isn't much but it pulls harder than my gst eclipse did stock. And they are 205 stock. I love it.

sorry haven't been on in a while for updates. Wife decided to leave me at the beginning this month so just been busy with the kids and figuring out the divorce. But on a better note. Car is doing good. Pushing just over 9psi right now car pulls hard. No dyno updates. Tom, I'm not avoiding you just got a lot going on right now. I'll get up with you early next month.

I appreciate it. Yea it ran at 7.8 for about 1.5 months and had it at over 9 for a little over a month. Yea at least now I don't have to discuss my parts purchases with anyone.

I hope you have good represenative if yoou unfortunately have to settle things in court :(. My girls a paralegall for family law, you wouldn't believe the stories I hear. I feel so bad for kids in the middle of those kinds of situations. I hope for your sake its nothing like any of that. Good luck man, and don't settle to quickly without advice from an attorney at least first
