Ghost Check Engine lights?

I have Tom's tune on my car and I'm getting ghost check engine lights... I'll be driving my car for a little bit and everytime after a couple miles the check engine light will come on so I'll stop and try and see what the code is but the predator will say no codes... Not sure what's up.. anyone else have this problem?

I'm not feeling any misfiring... the car is running fine other than being rich (42lb injectors)...

Spark plug wires are Steeda and have only been on 10k so they are still in good shape...

plugs are almost brand new motorcraft copper cores so I'm good there as well...

Take it to Autozone (etc.) and have them check it with one of their scanners...if its throwing a code it'll be in the memory even if the light has since gone off. Maybe there's something up with your Predator...? Have you ever pulled a code with it before?
