well like i was saying before and someone correct me if im wrong but maybe it has to do with this.. by having a bigger intercooler you have to push more boost to run the same boost into the intake.. could that effect it at all?

It could definitly chamge your AFR....

1) You have a larger intercooler, that will change your IAT's cooler air means more air.

2) You changed to a smaller pipe... when you push the same amount of air through a smaller pipe you pick up velocity in your air flow

Anytime you change your piping/intercooler there is always the possibility that you may have to make changes to your tune.

About a retune...i have a problem that i have a Diablo Chip and it is more difficult to do that, can i have another option to correct this issue? maybe turning up at the BAP?

Because 11īs is too lean i am right?

11s are plenty safe for boost *if* you are tuned for it. Like you said, Tom dialed you in at 10.5. That means your timing could be different than what you should run with 11s. John will know what the deal is, but what I do know is you typically don't want to run leaner when your setup wasn't meant for it. New engines aren't cheap...

Ya your right it could change but in my case it didnt. it just raised the boost a little because it was more efficient so i compinsated and turned it back donw to 18. (did datalogs)

if you noticed when you removed your bumper the radiator had a piece of plastic that directed the air onto the radiator, you could probably fabricate something like that to direct the airflow ontop of the intercooler w/o cutting too much out of the bumper.
