if you are coasting (not in neutral or clutched) or engine breaking it will go lean or even shut off fuel. it is normal

Thanks tls_bmx, but I do know what my values should be..

I'm certain it's a configuration issue..
It fluctuates wildly with no pattern whatsoever.. will bounce from 9.9 to 20.00 with no change in throttle.
Oh and the car runs flawlessly.
Checked the plugs at 1,000 miles and they looked new.

I haven't tweaked the tune whatsoever, and I you can believe I had my eyes glued to the A/F meter at the dyno.

well if it runs right the wideband is wrong cause your car would run bad if it actually fluctuated like that.

but i dont really know how to help ya, i have a uego and its installation was very simple. plug it in and go.

Here's my Focus at Pittsburgh Raceway Park when it was stock.
Ran a 16.35@84 with a terrible 2.49 60'.
Should be slightly better with the turbo once the clutch and LSD are done. :)

Nasty write up. Thanks for putting the time into this thread. WOW

COST

What many have been waiting for..
Some prices do not include shipping, some do. Same with taxes.
I tried to do some formatting.. but the forum entry box just reformats it again.
I'm certain I forgot to include some things so I'm throwing in a range for my bottom line cost.
Although I got good deals here and there I didn't go "cheap" on anything, including the turbo.
I didn't buy some junk yard turbo like some may be thinking.
The turbo has 0 shaft play, spins freely and has relatively low miles (30k).

As you can see the tune is a huge chunk of the cost, and I've included the wideband.

The upcoming spec stage 3 clutch and Torsen LSD will up this cost by at least $1,000.
Look forward to that to-do thread in spring of 2008.

I estimate 150-200 hours went into this project.
Aside from the welding of the oil drain I did everything myself.

If anyone wants additional details posted about any portion of this writeup please don't hesitate to ask.

If any companies are interested in showcasing or beta-testing their products and would like me to perform a writeup PM me and we'll work something out.
