I was getting a good bit KR up top too with my stock plugs. I went one step cooler and its almost gone. I blame the rest on my tuning.
What AFR are you running nominally, in PE and in Boost? I set mine at 13.9/12.9/11.5. I'm getting decent mileage not in 'boost'. I want it leaner without burning out my exhaust valves.


I'm not sure where Justin has them set. I just shut up and say work your magic. The guy that has the dyno is a friend of Justin's also so he can let him know where everything is. I know I haven't lost any mileage with the blower.

Based on Justin's recommendation I just installed NGK tr55 plugs at 0.035. I haven't data logged yet, but seat of the pants and visually watching the exhaust I think we are very close. It seems more responsive. It was time for plugs anyway.

Interesting, I have been running those plugs in my 02 at that gap now for a long time on the recommendation of Terry Dyson, the individual that does my oil analysis. Glad to know it is a good setup.

I'd have to say you're getting closer to having it the way you want it. :thumbs:

Thanks guys. I will have to say, boost is much like Nitrous, it is addicting!
